DELICIOUS!!!!! I used 1 jar of home canned apples and made it into "apple pie filling" by following the recipe called Apple Pie Filling (skipped cooking the apples as mine were already cooked). This made enough filling for TWO cheesecakes. I also made my own graham cracker crust and added chopped pecans to the crust. It was an easy recipe to follow. If followed exactly, it will not fail! The pecans in the crust AND mixed into the caramel topping were the two things I added that made this even more outstanding than as written! Seriously, use pecans!! The best part is this cheesecake doesn't have to set overnight! It was ready to eat 2 hours after coming out of the oven. 1 hr to cool to room temperature, add topping, cool in fridge 1 more hour, DONE.
I made this, using a bit more of the caramel tipping on top, and it was a big hit for our large family's Thanksgiving dinner!! I will definitely be making it again!!
This was the first "real" cheesecake I ever made. My family loved it!! I did make one change: I omitted the pecans. We aren't really nut people, and it didn't make sense to me why they were there in the first place. Otherwise: super easy and VERY yummy!!
For my diabetic husband I make this with home made pie filling using sugar substitute and Smuckers sugar free caramel topping. It is delicious.
this cheesecake had the perfect consistancy, not too soft not too hard and was super delicious!! The only thing I did wrong was I used caramel syrup and really needed to be caramel topping so it would be thicker but it was still one of the best cheesecakes I have ever had
This is a delicious cheesecake. I found I needed to adjust the baking time to 45 - 50 minutes. Best to watch for doneness as oven temps varying.
my family loves this the best out of any other cheesecake
I made this for my partners Birthday he loved it. It was very easy to make. I did take out the pecans my partner is not a nut person. I really like baked cheesecake allot better than instant ones. You could even just take the cake recipe and do with it what ever you want.
