Apple Crisp Cheesecake

I have a confession to make.  I’m not a huge fan of pie.  When it comes to holiday desserts, I prefer cookies, cake, cheesecake or just about anything over pie.  So, anyway, this year I decided to try an apple crisp cheesecake (and it’s in a pie plate so I guess pie-lovers should be happy to right?)


We’ll start with the crust.  I made a homemade graham cracker crust, and it does work best but you could try it with a store-bought crust.

What you need:

2 cups of graham cracker crumbs

1/4 cup of light brown sugar

2 tsp cinnamon

6 tbs of butter melted

Combine and press into a pie plate.  Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.

For the cheesecake:

12 0z cream cheese

1/2 cup of sugar

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

2 Tbs flour

1 large egg

Beat the softened cream cheese with sugar vanilla and flour then add egg and mix until combined.

For the apple crisp topping:

½ cup flour

½ cup light brown sugar

½ cup quick-cooking oats

1 tsp cinnamon

¼ teaspoon nutmeg

¼ cup unsalted butter- melted

Stir together dry ingredients and add melted butter, combine with a fork.


To build:

Add cheesecake batter to the graham cracker crust, top with 1 can of apple pie filling (feel free to make a homemade apple pie filling but the canned version tastes great!), top with apple crisp topping, and bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees.
