2 medium apples, granny smith, peeled, cored, and sliced
1/2 cup caramel topping
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp lemon juice
32 oz cream cheese, softened to room temp
1 cup sugar, preferrably baker's sugar
5 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp lemon zest
3/4 cup sour cream
192 grams (2 cups)graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup butter (melted)
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped almonds
2 tbsp butter, chilled
2 tbsp caramel topping

Recipe Directions for Tania's New York Style Caramel Apple Cheesecake

  1. In a medium sauce pan, over low-medium heat, cook two tbsp butter, sliced apples, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg, 1/4 tsp salt and lemon juice until apples are softened (about 5 minutes.) Add 1/2 cup caramel topping and let simmer for 3-4 minutes. Set aside to cool.

  2. Mix together graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and 2 tbsp sugar. Press graham mixture into cheesecake pan, working mixture 1-1/2" up the sides of the pan. Use the bottom of a cup or something with a flat, even surface to press down the crust.

  3. Beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Add 1 cup of baker's sugar and vanilla then beat in one egg at a time. Stir in the lemon zest and sour cream by hand.

  4. Pour half the cheese mixture into graham cracker crust. Spoon the cooled caramel apple mixture evenly over that. Pour the rest of the cheese mixture over that.

  5. In a medium bowl, combine flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 tsp cinnamon, and 1/4 cup chopped almonds. Cut in 2 tbsp butter (cold) until well incorporated. Sprinkle topping over cheesecake.

  6. It is very important to follow the baking and cooling instructions carefully to ensure a gradual baking and cooling process. This ensures your cake doesn't crack and that it sets properly.

  7. Wrap the outside of the springform pan with at least two layers of foil. Place springform pan in a shallow roasting pan/dish in the center of a COLD oven. Fill roasting pan/dish with 1-2 inches of hot water.

  8. Turn up heat to 325 degrees and bake for 25 minutes. Then reduce temperature to 275 and bake for another 1 hour and 20 minutes, or until center of cheesecake is almost set. Turn off oven and leave cheesecake in oven for another 40-60 minutes until oven has cooled.

  9. Remove cheesecake from oven and let it cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes. Remove the foil, run a thin knife between the cake and the springform pan, then release clasp on the pan and allow to cool for 2 hours. Place uncovered cheesecake in refrigerator for 4-5 hours (or overnight is best) until completely cooled and set.

  10. Drizzle with remaining caramel topping before serving.
