Next, add cinnamon, an egg, and some vanilla extract for that extra hint of "I can't really taste it but I would notice if it was missing" flavoring.

Spoon the cheesecake mixture into the apple until it's about two thirds of the way full. Bake for 25-30 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Since it still resembles an apple, we'll pretend it's still healthy!

Whip It Good
If you thought the stuffing was good, wait until you see the whipped cream topping. In a small pot, whisk together a cup of heavy whipping cream and 3/4 cup of maple syrup. Slowly bring to a simmer until it starts to bubble and the mixture sticks to a spoon.

Next, add a half cup of chopped pecans and stir gently. Let this crunchy and sticky concoction cool first before you have a taste...those bubbles are hot!
