The Forever Satisfying Apple Crumble Cheesecake!
Impress your family with this apple filled cheesecake topped with amazing streusel and caramel!
(In pizza pan because my spring form pan isnt the best and leaks butter sometimes)
When I made this cheesecaked everyone couldn't stop with the compliments. It hit a note with everyone in the room (even my grandfather who normally doesn't compliment lol). This delicious and apple-y desert is great for any occasion.
What You'll Need:
-2 Granny Smith Apples, Peeled, Chopped
-1/2 tsp of Ground Cinnamon
-3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp Granulated Sugar, Divided
-1/2 cup Flour
-1/2 cup Packed Brown Sugar
-1/2 Cup Large Flake Rolled Oats
-1/2 Cup Butter, Melted, Divided
-1 1/4 cups Graham Crumbs
-3 Pkgs (250g each) Brick Cream Cheese, softened
-1tsp Vanilla Extract
-2 Tbsp Caramel Sauce (or more ;p)
Step 1: Heat oven to 350F. Cook apples, cinnamon and 2 Tbsp of granulated sugar in a saucepan on medium for about 7-8 minutes or until the apples are nice and tender, stirring often. Remove from heat.
Step 2: Mix flour, brown sugar, oats and half the butter until well blended; spread onto a baking sheet and back for about 8 minutes or until lightly browned.
Step 3: Mix Graham crumbs and remaining butter; press onto bottom of a 9inch springform pan. Top with apple mixture, spreading to within 1/2" of the edge.
Step 4: Beat the cream cheese, remaining granulated sugar and vanilla until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended; pour over apple mixture.
Step 5: Bake for 40-50 minutes or until centre is almost set. Run a knife around rim of the pan to loosen cake. Cool before removing the rim. Refrigerate cheesecake for minimum 4 hours. Top with streusel and caramel sauce!
And also a great touch is using ginger cookies to replace the graham crumbs.
