Beat in melted vanilla, baking chips, half and half and 1 teaspoon vanilla until blended. Spread 3 1/2 cups cream cheese mixture evenly into crust lined pan. Carefully spoon pie filling over cream cheese layer. Spoon remaining cream cheese mixture evenly over pie filling. Bake 1 hour 15 minutes or until edges of cheesecake is set at least 2 inches from the edge of the pan. Turn oven off, open door at least 4 inches and let cheesecake remain in for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool on rack 1 hour. Cover, refrigerate at least 8 hours before serving.
