Thought this sounded intriguing so I just had to pinch it from Kroger's recipe website, and the photo as well. I can't wait to try it! As long as my delivery company keeps me in apples, it should be no problem.

How to Make APPLE CARDAMOM CHEESECAKE

Step-by-Step

  1. For the crust: Mix all the ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Press firmly onto the bottom and 1 inch up the side of a 9-inch springform pan. Set aside.
  2. For the glazed apples: Cut the apples into thin slices (about 1/4 inch thick). Add remaining ingredients to apples in a large skillet. Cook on medium heat 5 to 10 minutes or until apples begin to caramelize, turning frequently. Arrange apples atop the crust.
  3. For the filling: In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy. Gradually beat in sugar, vanilla and lemon peel. Add eggs, one at a time, beating on low speed after each one, just until blended. Spoon evenly over apples.
  4. Bake in a preheated 325-degree oven for 60 to 70 minutes or until center is almost set. Turn oven off and allow cheesecake to cool in oven 1 hour with door slightly ajar. Run small knife around rim of pan to loosen cheesecake. Cool in pan on wire rack.
  5. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Store any leftovers in refrigerator.
