We're taking a break from marketing to immerse ourselves in all things fall. That is why we are sharing our favorite apple dessert with you: Caramel Apple Cheesecake. Tried and tested by Milana's family for years, you know it will be a good one. ;) Snag the recipe below!
1.5 cups of crushed graham crackers (original or cinnamon flavor)
1 package (14 oz) of caramels
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 cup of butter, melted
3/4 cups of sugar, divided
1/2 cup of nuts, optional
4 packages of cream cheese, softened (8 oz, each)
4 cups of chopped apples (about 3-4 apples)
Make + Bake It:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix graham crackers and melted butter into a cheesecake pan.
Next, take 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1/2 a teaspoon of cinnamon and mix together. Save the rest of the sugar + cinnamon for later. Take the remaining sugar and cinnamon and beat into cream cheese until blended. Slowly, mix eggs into the cream cheese.
Once everything is well-blended, pour mixture into the pan.
Top the mixture with apples, nuts and the remaining sugar + cinnamon.
Bake the cheesecake for about 30 minutes.
Remove the cake to add caramels to the mixture and put back into the oven to bake for another 15-20 minutes.
Cool and refrigerate the cheesecake for 4-6 hours.
