Applebees Apple Chimi-Cheesecake

Source: Posted by Sue Sullivan Monday, 30 October 2000, at 6:43 p.m.
Not my recipe, but found this..... I think it sounds close to the original.

This is simple and easy. Make a cheesecake and add cooked apples to the cake. (I have used apples out of canned pie filling, taking just the apples from the can. Omit the excess syrup filling.) After it firms up, cut into pieces.

Wrap in a flour tortilla. Tie it up with string to hold it together so it will not come undone during frying.

Fry them in oil at 350 degrees F. Fry until golden brown and serve it with caramel sauce. You can use caramel topping for ice cream or you can make it yourself using soft caramels. Melt them using a double broiler (this comes the closest to the caramel we use for the chimis at Applebees).

21 Club Hamburger Recipe

Here is a classy version of an American classic, adapted from "The "21" Cookbook" by Michael Lomonoco:

1/4 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup chicken broth
2 pounds ground top sirloin
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
3 tablespoons butter

Combine the celery and chicken broth in a small saucepan over very low heat and poach the celery for 20 minutes.

Drain the celery and cool.

Combine the celery with the remaining ingredients except the butter, mixing well with your hands. Gently shape into 4 large patties, being careful not to compact the meat any more than necessary.

Heat the butter in a large, heavy skillet over moderate heat until the butter is amber in color. Brown the burgers 6 minutes on each side, then place the skillet in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 6 to 8 minutes for medium rare, a few additional minutes for better done.

NOTE: Due to the possibility of E. coli contamination, the U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends cooking all meat well done.) Serves 4.
