When my hubby’s birthday was approaching, he asked me if I could make a delicious cheesecake for him instead of a cake. I said Of course! but then I got thinking what can I make that wouldn’t have chocolate but not macadamia either since I had made it a week before.

Talking to my dear friend Dana from This Silly Girl’s Kitchen, she suggested making it topped with fried apples and cinnamon. I knew right away that would be a hit with my hubby. He loves that flavor combo.

How to Make this Caramel Fried Apple Cinnamon Cheesecake

  • First, prepare your salted caramel sauce or if you have it store-bought, keep them handy. But if you really want to make this dessert DELICIOUS, I would totally encourage to make this caramel sauce recipe!
  • For the crust, turn the graham crackers into crumbs with a food processor. When the crumbs are very small add the melted butter and mix for about 2 min to blend it well.

  • Butter or spray 9×9″ spring pan {you can use wax paper too for the bottom}.  Pour graham mixture in the pan and press and pat into bottom until it’s even. Bake at 350 ºF degrees 5-10 minutes. Set aside.

  • Bake until cheesecake puffs and edges crack slightly, about 45 to 60 minutes.
  • Bring cheesecake to rack and let it cool completely.
  • Chop your apples into 4ths, then 3rds.

  • While baking the cheesecake, place butter into a large pan over medium heat.
  • Melt butter, add in the brown sugar and cinnamon, stir to combine.
  • Add in the apples, coat in the butter mixture and let it cook stirring occasionally until the apples are just fork tender, about 10 minutes. Set aside.

  • When cheesecake is done and cool, top it with the fried apples mixture. Since I was going to add salted caramel, I tried to pour more apple and less cinnamon-sugar mixture.

  • Then pour your caramel unevenly as much as you like all over the cheesecake on top of everything.

Can you Freeze this Fried Apple Cinnamon Cheesecake dessert?

For the fried apples filling my guess is that it would be just fine, because I’ve frozen apple pie filling in the past, and this is much the same, but of course, I really can’t say for sure.

As for the cheesecake, the answer is YES! According to Rachael Ray cheesecakes freeze incredibly well. Just place the cooled cheesecake on a baking pan and freeze, uncovered, until firm then removes the cheesecake from the freezer, remove it from the baking pan, wrap it in heavy-duty aluminum foil, and place in a freezer bag. Seal and return to the freezer.

It can be frozen for several months. Thaw the cheesecake in the refrigerator overnight. Always garnish your cheesecake (with berries, whipped cream, whatever you like) just prior to serving.

Together I’m not sure. Maybe if you fear you might need to freeze it, top individual pieces with the fried apple mixture and freeze filling and cheesecake separately.
