Caramel Apple Cheesecake!


I love anything with caramel and I also never met a cheesecake I didn't like, so I knew this would be a winner for me and it was!!!  This is a decadent dessert, special enough for holidays or special occasions, but it's really very easy!!! 

Here is what you will need:

1 (9 oz.) prepared graham cracker crust 
1 (21 oz.) cam of apple pie filling
2 (8 oz.) pkgs.. cream cheese, softened to room temperature
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla 
1 cup caramel ice cream topping
3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer until it's light and fluffy.  Beat in sugar and eggs.   Add the cinnamon and vanilla. 

Place the graham cracker crust on a cookie sheet, just for easier handling and in case of spill overs.  Be sure to use the large 9 oz. crust that says "2 extra servings".  The regular graham cracker crust will not be large enough.   Keebler makes the large crust. 


Spread half of the caramel topping in the bottom of the crust.

Spread half of the apple pie filling over the caramel. 
Put the other half of the caramel topping and the rest of the apple pie filling in a small saucepan over low heat and stir together.  This will be used later for the topping.


  Pour the cheesecake filling over all and spread to the edges.   Place in the preheated 350 degree oven and bake for 30 minutes or until set.   Allow to cool on the counter.

Spread the rest of the apple pie filling  and caramel topping over the top.  Sprinkle with chopped walnuts or pecans.  Cover and chill for 3 hours or until ready to serve! 


This is so yummy!!!   Enjoy!!!
