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.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Apple Pie Cheesecake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Spray 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray.
  3. In a bowl mix crumbs with 6 tbsp melted butter.
  4. Press firmly into springform pan, allowing it to go about 1/2 inch up the side of pan to create a nice crust.
  5. Wrap the outside of the pan with foil and bake 10 minutes. Set aside.
  6. While crust is cooking, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth.
  7. Beat in eggs, egg yolk, flour, cream, and vanilla until well blended.
  8. In a separate bowl, toss apples with 1 tbsp brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg until coated.
  9. Pour half the cream cheese mixture over crust.
  10. Arrange apples over the cream cheese mixture.
  11. Then pour remaining mixture over apples.
  12. Bake 40 minutes at 350.
  13. While cheesecake is baking, prepare the topping. In a small bowl stir together 1/2 c brown sugar and 1/4 c melted butter.
  14. After cheesecake has baked 40 minutes, drop topping mixture over cheesecake.
  15. Put back in oven and cook another 30 minutes until top is golden brown and edges have begun to pull away from sides of springform pan.
  16. Cool on wire rack to room temperature.
  17. Once the cheesecake has come to room temperature, wrap tightly in plastic and refrigerate overnight which will allow it to set properly. Optional: Drizzle caramel sauce over top before serving.
