Normally I make a recipe exactly how its written first, then tweak to my liking. After reading the reviews, I tweaked first and it came out amazing. I made the crust exactly as is; perfect. I increased the ingredients for the filling (3 pkgs cream cheese, 3/4 c sugar, 3 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla, and added 1 c sour cream. I chopped the apples (1/2" cubes) place in a sauce pan, added the white sugar and cinnamon but also added 1/4 c brown sugar and cooked slowly until the apples softened. I drained the apples and thickened the liquid with a little flour then coated the apples before spooning on top. This is only my second baked cheesecake, so I opted to use a pan of water beneath and baked at 325 for 1 1/2 hours, cracked the door for 3 hours and it was perfect. A definite must is wrapping the bottom of the pan with foil! As others has said, any fruit topping would be awesome. Great starting point for many new creations. Thank you so much for sharing.
