  • 1 tsp of Vanilla
  • 24 oz of Cream cheese {Room temperature}
  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • 3 Large Eggs 4 if medium
  • 1-2 tsp ground cinnamon {or to taste}

Fried Apple Topping

  • 2 granny smith apples cored and cut into 4ths, then 3rds
  • 4 Tablespoons 1/2 stick unsalted butter
  • 3 Cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 4-5 tbsp Salted Caramel sauce


  • 12 oz of graham cracker {you can use any kind graham cracker but with honey or nuts are great}
  • 4 oz of melted unsalted butter


  • 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 9x9" 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.
  • Using a hand or electric mixer, beat cream cheese, until creamy fluffy, add in sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and eggs {one at a time}. Keep mixing about 3-5 minutes.
  • Transfer filling to prepared crust.
  • Bake until cheesecake puffs and edges crack slightly, about 45 to 60 minutes.
  • Bring cheesecake to rack and let it cool completely.
  • 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.
  • Cover cake with plastic wrap and chill cake overnight.
  • Remove sides of pan or pull from wax paper.
  • Serve and enjoy!!!
