Caramel Apple Cheesecake – decadent and indulgent cheesecake with caramel apple topping. Rich and creamy and absolutely amazing!
Cheesecake – my first true love when it comes to dessert. The very first one I learned how to make, the first dessert I made for my Hubby and the one I always make for special occasions. Like holidays.
This past weekend, we celebrated our Annual Family Day. It’s a tradition we started right after my Hubby and I got married. We kept at it every year, making a big dinner and doing activities. It’s always the first Sunday of October. Now that we have three children, it feels like we are a big family and everyone can participate which makes for a lot of fun! Pumpkins are carved, Thanksgiving and Halloween decorations are hung and placed and a big dinner is served. It is a kick off to the holiday season. It let’s us focus on our family and doing things together. We tend to get distracted by meetings and get-togethers for Thanksgiving or Christmas so this holiday is just for us. Just being together with our kids. Being a family.
Through out this week, I will be sharing all of the dishes we had on our special holiday. But let’s start with the dessert. 🙂 Because, why not?
Let’s put pumpkin aside for a moment and focus on the other fall fruit that gets a lot of love this time of year. Apples. Especially when paired with caramel. They were meant to be together and that is an obvious fact.
I had an idea for this cheesecake for months now and I knew it would be perfect for our Family Day! Cinnamon cheesecake topped with apple slices sauteed in caramel sauce. Heaven for a dessert lover!
It’s gorgeous yet super easy to make. If you follow my tips, you will make the perfect cheesecake. Last year, I shared my 10 tips for making a cheesecake and many of you followed them and made the best cheesecakes of your life! Thank you all for the messages!
For this dessert, I made a classic graham cracker crust yet the one that won’t crumble when cutting a slice. It’s the best! I made a cinnamon clove cheesecake filling and baked it to a perfection! Meaning creamy, melt-in-your-mouth and no-crack perfection. After chilling, I whipped up my Skillet Caramel Apples and dressed up the cheesecake with them.
One decadent cheesecake for the fall season. Or any time you want a caramel apple dessert. Each bite is a pure indulgence that melts in your mouth! The apples are sweet and soft but not mushy. A dash of ground nutmeg enhances the caramel and makes the flavors even more pronounced.
You have to make it!
