Our power bill and gas bill usually have a recipe insert with the bill and over the years, I’ve added them to my recipe file. When I saw the one for Caramel Apple Cheesecake I couldn’t wait to try it! I decided to make it when our granddaughter Taylor spent the night with us…she’s getting real interested in “helping” in the kitchen and she couldn’t wait to help me! Here’s what you’ll need:
CARAMEL APPLE CHEESECAKE
- 1 can apple pie filling
- 1 graham cracker crust
- 2 8 oz. packages crème cheese
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 t. vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup roasted pecans, chopped
- caramel sauce
Mix crème cheese, eggs, sugar and vanilla. Pour into crust and bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes (more or less, depending on your oven).
Pour apple pie filling on top of cheesecake. Sprinkle pecans and drizzle caramel sauce on top of filling.
We shared this slice and let me tell you….it’s very rich! I took 1/2 of the pie to my daughter’s house the next day so we’d have something sweet to eat while watching the Auburn-Tennessee game (War Eagle!) and my son-in-law snuck in the kitchen and ate it all by himself! Taylor announced that she saw the empty pie pan in their trash can and that “daddy ate it all”! Since my son-in-law loves anything caramel, and I usually give him a store bought caramel pie for his birthday, this is what I’m going to make him this year.
Let me know if you try it!
