In one other medium-sized bowl, mix cream cheese, eggs, and sweetener and blend with spoon or mixer at low-speed. Pour into tart or pie pan.

Core apple and slice into very skinny sections. Prepare in circles across the fringe of the cream cheese combination, working inwards. Distribute cranberries over high, then sprinkle cinnamon over complete combination.
