"This is yummy & a nice change from the usual chocolate, cherry, etc. cheesecakes.The crust is a nice change also from the graham & chocolate ones. A tip that was listed is that you can make this ahead of time, pop it in the freezer,ready to serve for up to 3 months! Store right in the springform pan covered in plastic wrap and just thaw in the refrigerator when ready to use."

"I was going to post this recipe but you beat me to it. This is simply one of the best cheesecakes I have ever made. It's like an apple crisp and cheesecake all in one. I made it for Christmas last year and it didn't last long. I find it quite addictive, I kept eating little pieces all thru the night. "
"After I cut into this, I thought, "I definitely outdid myself on this one." It looked incredible! But then I tasted it, and the combination of cheesecake, apples and streusel blew me away! Thank you so much for this recipe! Everyone loved it!"
"Awesome. I made this as written and would agree with another reviewer that a whole lemon is too lemony- Next time will use 1/2, or just juice without zest. Blended well though and was yummy. Looks very fancy and is not hard to make- even made 1/4 more of everything to fit my 10" pan. Thanks for posting this!"
"I wish I could give this 10 stars! This was absolutely delicious and so easy! We loved the crispy shortbread crust. I am going to try this crust with my other cheesecakes. I think I will double the streuel the next time, because it is so yummy!"
"Delicious! I made the following changes and it was still wonderful. I used Splenda in place of white sugar, EggBeaters in place of real eggs and fat free sour cream and it still turned out great. Everyone love it. Chris in Phoenix"
"mmmm this is the best....I have made this sooo many times and my husband and I go through this in 2 sittings....the only thing I did was cut the apples in smaller chunks, everything was perfect on this!!!!! would not change anything about this."
"This was a great surprise for me! I'd never made a cheesecake before - mostly because I usually find them too rich and dense - but this recipe intrigued me, so I decided to give it a try for a potluck. As other reviewers have said, the combination of flavors was great. I particularly liked the crust, which was a huge improvement on the traditional graham-cracker crust, in my opinion. I diced the apples rather than slicing them, which worked great, although when I make this again, I might double the apple layer... I really liked them and wanted more :) I could see making maybe 1.5 times the cheesecake layer, too. But proportions aside, this cheesecake had a great flavor and wasn't too heavy, and it got raves at the potluck (the whole thing disappeared by the end of the night). Definitely one that I'll make again!"
"After reading the reviews for this, I went out and bought my first springform pan (at 57) and made this for a Christmas dessert. Doubled the streusel topping as some suggested. WOW!! DH said it's the best dessert I've ever made. The flavors all go together so well. Yum, yum,yum! Will DEFINITELY be making it again!"
"This was great! Having read the reviews, I was a bit concerned about the results of the crust and also a potential 'too lemony' flavor. It was PERFECT! My husband loved it as part of his 2nd Father's day. To the topping I also doubled it and added some quick oats for crunch. YUM!"
"Loads of apples to use up and this was was excellent! Gone in no time!"
"Definitely one of the best cheesecakes i have ever had! And very easy to make. Not too sweet, not too rich. Perfect!! Will make this one over and over and over again!!"
"This cheesecake had a good flavor, I just wish there was more of it. I would definatly double or triple the cheesecake portion. There was not enough cheesecake to offset the tartness of the apples in my opinion. Thanks for posting:)"
"This was a great cheesecake. I used a mix of sweet and tart apples for this and it came out awesome. It was a huge hit. I plan to make this again and again. Thanks so much for sharing!!"
"This recipe was phenominal! I doubled the ingredients of the topping to get a thicker, all over one, but other than that, it was perfect! I love lemon, so I did not mind the strong flavor. It offset the sweetness well. I also tried this with strawberries. Worked fine!"
"I followed the recipe almost exactly except I used half a lemon. I did not care for the crust, but the filling was amazing! I will definitely be using the filling in the future."
"Very nice Cheesecake. Next time I'll added a little cinnamon to the filling,but other then that is was great. Thanks"
"this cheesecake was very easy to make. i was unsure of a cheesecake recipe using only 1 pkg cream cheese, but it turned out perfectly. i did cut down on the lemon juice (i used only 1/2 a lemon) and increased the topping ingredients by almost double. using the juice from the whole lemon would have been too much IMO. definitely make again. took to a thanksgiving dinner and the cheesecake received rave reviews. i had one slice left to take home."
"I got rave reviews from coworkers with this one! Only thing I would change is using a smaller pan and leave out the whipping cream."
"This Cheesecake is one of the best I have ever made. My family went on and on about how good it tasted. They even suggested that I make the same crust for all the cheesecakes I make from now own. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe."
"Another winner recipe! I was asked to make a cheesecake for a church function and this recipe was perfect. I had everything already at home and it was easy to put together. I used granny smith apples and recipe#45672 for the cinnamon. I glazed the cheesecake with Non-Dairy Caramel Sauce #108430 for an extra treat. Thanks for sharing this recipe!"
