Sooo Good! I'm not sure if this wasn't originally one of those Kraft-Philly Recipe's, but I now see that Paula Dean also claims it as her own. Either way I was at first a little skeptical to try it since it called for canned apples, etc. But boy am I glad I did! It is absolutely incredible!

How to Make Caramel Apple Cheesecake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Reserve 3/4 cup apple filling. Spoon remaining filling into crust.
  3. Beat together cream cheese, sugar & vanilla.
  4. Add eggs and beat well. Pour over apple filling.
  5. Bake 35 min's or until center is set.
  6. Cool
  7. Mix reserved apple filling & caramel topping in small saucepan & heat about 1 minute.
  8. Arrange apple slices around outside edge of cheesecake.
  9. Spoon caramel sauce over the cheesecake & spread evenly.
  10. Decorate w/pecan halves around edges (alternating in between sliced apples). Sprinkle w/chopped pecans
  11. Refrigerate at least overnight ... *but best prepared a day or two in advance.
  12. It actually turns out much nicer than the picture shows, but it's the only one I could find to post.
    The presenation is much nicer when apples and pecans are alternately arranged around the edge as the directions say, with the chopped pecans sprinkled around the middle. But no matter what it looks like ... you will love every bite!
