Ingredients

Crust:

  • cups graham cracker crumbs
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 7 Tablespoons butter melted
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon

Cheesecake:

  • 2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 (21 oz) can apple pie filling
  • ¼ cup caramel topping
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup cinnamon almonds coarsely chopped (or any nut that you prefer)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium sized bowl, combine all ingredients for the crust. Mix until crumbly, then press firmly into the bottom and up the sides of a 9 inch pie plate. Bake in preheated oven for 6-7 minutes until set.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese over medium speed until fluffy. Add in the sugar, vanilla extract, and eggs and beat until mixture is smooth.
  • Scoop ¾ of the apple pie filling from the can and spread in the bottom of the prepared crust. Top with the cheesecake filling, spreading evenly.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes until top is set and cheesecake is cooked through. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  • While cheesecake is baking, combine remaining ¼ can of apple pie filling, caramel topping, and ½ tsp of cinnamon in a small sauce pan over low heat. Stir until smooth, then set aside.
  • When cheesecake is cool, spread caramel apple mixture over the top and sprinkle with chopped nuts. Refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours before slicing. Enjoy!

Notes

  • How to Store: once the cheesecake has cooled completely, store in an airtight container or cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • Make ahead: this is an excellent dessert recipe to make ahead of time for the holidays. It can be made ahead and stored covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • Freezing: this caramel apple cheesecake freezes well for up to 6 months. Once the cheesecake is completely cool, store in a freezer safe airtight container or cover with both plastic wrap and aluminum foil before freezing. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before serving.
