I made this for a family Halloween party and everyone requested it again for Thanksgiving. It is so easy and delicious! Thank you Stephanie for making me a cheesecake queen!
I read pretty much all of the reviews before I made this because I had never made cheesecake before and was super nervous. I baked it in a water bath, doubled the cheesecake ingredients, prepared the apple sliced before starting the cheesecake and microwaved them for a minute to remove excess moisture, used all graham crackers for the crust and a little extra butter (I didn't have any pecans on hand), added a streusel topping, baked for 70 minutes and let cool for 45 min with the oven door open and drizzled some caramel on top before serving. It was amazing!!!
Some tips from my sister for making cheesecake for those who, like I was, are cheesecake making virgins: make sure all of your ingredients for the cheesecake itself are room temperature and mix until completely smooth or it may come out grainy, a water bath/pan with water are important for the cheesecake to stay moist and not crack, make it ahead of time and give it time to set and press the crust firmly into the pan to make sure it stays well.
