Dulce de Leche Apple Crisp Cheesecake 

.Dulce de Leche Apple Crisp Cheesecake

My family is at our church’s Christmas dinner and I am at home cuddling a feverish baby boy. I figured I’d use the time to procrastinate doing my lesson for Sunday and finally blog one of my favorite dessert creations ever. I know the baby isn’t feeling well because he isn’t constantly trying to type on my keyboard, so I can actually get something done, but it is always sad to see him (or any of my kids), not feeling well.

My little brother came to visit for Thanksgiving. Well, his birthday happened to be the day before Thanksgiving. I asked him what he wanted for dessert for his birthday. He said cheesecake and we had some apples that needed to be used, so I created this Dulce de Leche Apple Crisp Cheesecake. I had no idea if it would turn out well or not!

It was pure genius though. This was so FREAKING DELICIOUS! Like seriously one of the best desserts ever! I don’t say that lightly because I love most desserts. This was outstanding. Worth EVERY calorie. Nothing like calorie loading that day before Thanksgiving! Best Cheesecake I’ve had (and I’ve had lots of cheesecakes!!!)

I am going to change this recipe a bit from what I did, because I think these changes will make it better. The topping got hard to cut in the refrigerator (still fantastically delicious!) and the middle could have been cooked a touch longer. So I am changing the temperature cooked at and how to make the topping. When I make this again, I’ll be using the recipe below, with the changes that I’ve made!

If you want a delicious dessert that people will seriously RAVE about, give this a try. You’ll thank me later (well, maybe not your waistline)

You could make this into bars too! Would be great for a potluck or party! Simply bake in a 13×9 pan about 10 minutes less than in the springform round pan.

Ingredients:

Crust:

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 3/4 cup Oats
  • 1/2 cup melted butter

 

Cheesecake:

  • 3 8oz. pkgs. cream cheese (softened)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla

 

Topping:

  • 3 peeled, cored, and sliced apples
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 can Dulce de Leche (directions to make it here)

 

Directions:

Heat oven to 325

For the crust: Combine the butter, brown sugar, graham cracker crumbs, and Oats. Press into the bottom of a Springform Pan. (or a 13×9 pan if making bars). Bake for 5 minutes

While Crust is baking, in a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar together until smooth. Then add in the eggs, 1 at a time, mixing well after each. Add in vanilla and stir well to combine. Pour over warm crust.

For the Topping: In another bowl, cut the butter into the brown sugar, flour, oats, and cinnamon. Toss the apples into the topping and sprinkle over the cheesecake batter.

Bake for 50 minutes to an hour. Drizzle with the Dulce De Leche. Let cool. Refrigerate leftovers (or before serving, if desired). We drizzled each slice with even more Dulce De Leche! YUM YUM YUM!!!
