A twist on the traditional cheesecake. Add steamed apples in between the crust and spiced filling, then top with more apples and caramel topping.

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  • Mix graham cracker crumbs, butter, and 3 tablespoons white sugar together in a bowl; press into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan.

  • Beat cream cheese, 1 cup white sugar, 2 tablespoons cinnamon, 1 teaspoon nutmeg, vanilla extract, and 1/4 teaspoon cloves together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed just until blended.

  • Arrange a layer of apples onto the graham cracker crust, leaving a few for garnish. Pour cream cheese mixture over apples. Place pan in a larger baking dish and pour water onto the baking dish to create a water bath.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the center is almost set, about 55 minutes. Cool on counter for 20 minutes before refrigerating until completely chilled, about 4 hours. Garnish with remaining steamed apples and drizzle caramel syrup over the top.

Cook's Note:

Bake at 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) for 55 minutes if using a dark pan.

I was a little skeptical it would set nicely without a little addition which is why I give it only a 4 star rating. I did add 3/4 c milk and 1/4 c flour and oh wow. No other changes were made. The flavor partnered with a homemade (or bought I'm sure) caramel sauce was amazing. I have been asked to make this for a couple people to take to their thanksgiving meals!! Definitely worth making again. Read More
