If you're a graham cracker crust fan, you will love this cheesecake!
I made this cheesecake for my brother. He found a sale on cream cheese, came home and hinted that he would love a cheesecake. He is obessed with cheesecake. Here is a post on my dieting blog about his obsession.
He also is skinny and works out a lot. A LOT. Like he builds up a 5000 calories deficit and eats an entire cheesecake a week. Yes, you have my permission to hate him. I understand.
He also likes a graham cracker crust. This cheesecake has a graham cracker crust and on the top. He loved it. I had a small piece and it WAS very good. I'm not a big fan of baking cheesecake in a springform pan so we changed this so that it baked in a 9 x 13 pan. It turned out great.
Until next weekend when he has yet another cheesecake craving.
Dutch Apple Cheesecake Recipe
1 3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
5 tbsp. butter (melted)
1/2 cup sugar
3 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened (I used 2 light and 1 regular)
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3 large eggs
1 can (21 oz) apple pie filling
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
Prepare crust. Combine graham cracker crumbs and sugar, then add melted butter, mixing with fork. Press into the bottom of a 9 x 13 in. pan. Place in freezer while you prepare the rest so it can set.
Mix cream cheese and sugar with mixer. Add vanilla. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each egg. Make sure to scrape the sides of the bowl as you mix.
Prepare streusel topping. Mix graham cracker, brown sugar and cinnamon. Add melted butter and stir to combine. Set aside.
Pour half of the cheesecake batter onto crust. Cover evenly with the can of apple pie filling, then top with remaining cheesecake batter. Sprinkle streusel over the top of the cheesecake. Bake for about 1 hour at 350. Allow to cool completely.
