Wow, these were absolutely delicious. The whole family agreed the recipe is a keeper and I already have a request to make them again. I tried to make them a wee bit healthier by cutting back butter in the crust (only by 1 Tbsp) and exchanging half of the cream cheese for the low fat version. Still delicious. I only had an 8x8 pan and they seemed to bake forever, but it was worth it.

Used canned homemade apple pie filling, added vanilla extract and skipped the salt on top. Sprinkled with pecans as I drizzled the caramel on top. It did seem to take a long to bake, I wished I had put it on a lower rack so the top did not brown so much. Delicious!

made it in a premade graham cracker crust pie plate, it turned out pretty darn good!

My curiosity was definitely peaked!. I make cheesecake fairly often and thought this would be a great change. I followed the recipe exactly as written and was very pleased. I always take my All-Recipes First-Attempts at New Recipes to work to get the opinions of my co-workers. The whole tray disappeared in an astonishing short time. I was actually embarrassed to see them as they devoured it all. I used Chef John's Salted Caramel - my personal favorite caramel sauce

Not a fan of apples so going to use it as a base for other fruit. Strawberries sound like a good switch up with chocolate sauce.
