Most of the pins I keep in Pinterest are for my cooking recipes (Weekend cooking is a ritual for me...). This is my way of keeping to-investigate recipes organised, so that if I'm not satisfied with the result, I can just delete the link. If I love the result, it will be printed and included in my great book of cooking (...). For the Pin it and Do it challenge hosted by Trish, I had a very good excuse to bring out all the long-forgotten material I have, and start making some wonderful things:
First things first: an incredible dessert, that was munched within minutes... Just listen to this name: Maple syrup streusel apple cheesecake bar (mmmm...). And it is all that and more: a few ingredients that get assembled within minutes (literally) and then baked. Pure delight and decadence!!!

Preheat oven at 180C. Slightly roll out the pastry to make a rectangular and line a pie dish. Sprinkle the crust with the brown sugar. Mix all ingredients of the filling and spread on crust. Bake for about 25-30 minutes. In the meantime, prepare the streusel topping. After 20 minutes, take dish out and cover with the steusel. Place back in the oven and bake for a further 5-10 minutes, until golden. Take out and drizzle with maple surup (the quantity is indicative - you can pour as much or as little as you like). Leave to cool (I actually put it back in the oven and left it to cool there). Once cold, cut in 2*2cm squares.
