Apple Crumb Cheesecake

This is a recipe I got from my cousin's German wife. This is hands down, my favorite dessert.

I apologize for the metric measurements, which makes an already somewhat time consuming recipe even more so, but it's oh so worth it!

Vanilla sugar is available in most grocery stores. Sometimes it is in the baking aisle. If not, try the international foods section.

I find that two large apples tends to be enough. All that is needed is enough to cover the crust. I don't use one particular kind, any type of baking apple will do.
