This cheesecake is a croud-pleaser. I am constantly requested to bring this to get-togethers & every single time I leave with an empty dish! If you want to add a gourmet touch, drizzle carmel over the cake before you refrigerate & add some chocolate shavings.

Wonderful recipe!!! Make sure you use green apples, they have better flavor and the red apples just get mushy. It also looks beautiful on the table, which is a plus if you're making it for a dinner party. I wish I would have remembered to take a picture!
