Easy Apple Cheesecake

    55 minutes

    Apple is both baked into and put on top of this cheesecake. I like the way that the caramel sauce is mixed in with apple pie filling, so simple but so tasty.

    I was excited to try because it was so freakin' simple and good. Here are my SUPER EASY CHEATS: Use a pre-made Nilla Wafer crust, canned apple pie filling and the pre-made tub of Philly Cheesecake Mix found in your grocery deli section by the cream cheese. Add yummy caramel and chopped nuts to the top (or crushed toffee bits/candy) and let it sit for a few hours. EASY AND YUMMY!  -  31 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My impression was that it was pretty good, but there was something about it I didn't care for, although I couldn't put my finger on it. Then my husband tried it and said it was "interesting" (translation: I'm not sure if I care for this or not - which was basically my reaction). He said he loved the apples and caramel part, but the cheesecake part was very bland. It was a fluffy consistency, not a creamy consistency. I think the filling needed more vanilla to help with the flavor.  -  15 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I thought this came out really well. I put in a full teaspoon of vanilla after reading other peoples comments, and also added 1/2 tsp cinnamon to the mix. I made the crust and put 1/4tsp cinnamon in there as well. turned out yummy.  -  28 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
