Apple Cheesecake recipe

Never had apples in your cheesecake? Now is the time to try it out - apples lend a tart quality that perfectly balances out the richness of cream cheese.

Ingredients:

1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 cup sugar, divided
3 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon, divided
16 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
4 cups sliced apples (from 2 to 3 apples)
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup chopped pecans

Directions:

1) Preheat oven to 350°F.

2) Combine graham crackers, 3 tablespoons sugar, butter, and ½ teaspoon cinnamon together in a large bowl; mix well. Press mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch pie plate. Bake 10 minutes.

3) In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and ½ cup sugar together until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat well. Add vanilla and beat; pour mixture into prepared pie crust.

4) In a large bowl, combine remaining 1/3 cup sugar and ½ teaspoon cinnamon. Add apples and toss to coat. Spoon apples over cheesecake filling; sprinkle pecans evenly over. Bake one hour, remove, and cool before serving.

Apple Cheesecake Review by SdeK on December 8th, 2013:

SO GOOD! I didn't have quite enough cream cheese so I put about 1/2 cup of sour cream in. Actually, my daughter did - she's 9 and was able to make this recipe with little guidance. We used Arkansas Black apples. Even my mother in law, who is a trained European pastry chef, raved about it.
