Thank Goodness for Apples

There’s so much apple goodness packed into this quintessentially fall cheesecake. The Apple Crumble Cheesecake’s crisp sweet-tart character is owed to the fusion of Granny Smith apples with our creamy cheesecake filling, plus cinnamon and nutmeg adds a hint of spiciness. What we love about Granny Smith apples – aside from being particularly high in antioxidants – is that they’re naturally low in sugar giving them a tangy taste that works beautiful in this cheesecake. Pockets of juicy apple chunks are scattered throughout the cake which rests on a graham crumb crust and is topped with a dusting of apple crumble. A drizzle of caramel sauce is the finishing touch to our honest-to-goodness apple inspired cheesecake. (more…)
