  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 2 8 oz. packages cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 granny smith apples
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • caramel sauce for the top


  1. For the crust, combine 1 cup flour, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter in a food processor and pulse until crumbly. Press into the bottom of butter spring form pan. Bake at 350°F for 5-6 minutes until browned.

  2. For the cheesecake, combine the cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, eggs and vanilla extract and stir until well combined. I did this in my mixer. Pour into your prepared pan. Combine peeled, chopped apples with a few sprinkles of sugar, the cinnamon and the nutmeg, and then layer those over the cheesecake.

  3. For the topping, combine 1/2 cup flour,1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup butter. Mix together by hand until crumbly and layer on top. Bake the cheesecake for another 30-35 minutes. 

  4. Allow to cool before serving. Drizzle on some caramel sauce just before slicing and serving.
