Apple Pie Stuffed Cheesecake

Christine Hadden


No, you are not dreaming. This is really a cheesecake that is stuffed with the deliciousness of an apple pie. This dessert is not for the faint of heart. This is a delightfully heavy dessert, BUT I do think it's worth every single calorie that it has. I do not even want to figure out a calorie count for this, it's THAT good.

This cheesecake will please both the apple and cheesecake lovers. It's rich and creamy. A gingersnap crust is a perfect base for this delectable dessert. The apples are a tasty surprise hiding in the middle. We loved the sweet crunchy topping, it's like one you'd find on an apple pie. This is beautiful enough for an event, but simple enough for a weeknight dessert. We highly recommend the caramel syrup, it's the perfect final touch.

Note: We baked it in a water bath to prevent cracking. Place the foil-wrapped pan, in about 2 inches of warm water and then bake. The Test Kitchen
