Apple Cheesecake

Apple Cheesecake
1c graham cracker crumbs
¾ c finely chopped nuts (and I don’t mean family members)
3 T sugar
½ tsp cinnamon
2 T unsalted butter
16 oz cream cheese (room temp, or you’ll be cursing up a storm like we were)
½ c sugar (ask your sweetie)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs

4 c peeled and thinly sliced Granny Smith apples (~2-3 apples)
½ tsp cinnamon
1/3 c sugar
½ c chopped nuts
Preheat oven to 325F. Spray 8in spring form pan with cooking spray.

To make crust:
Mix all ingredients and press onto bottom of pan. Bake 10 min, remove from oven and let cool.

Beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until well blended. Add in eggs one at a time.
Pour mixture over cooled crust.

Put sliced apples in bowl and toss with cinnamon and sugar. Spoon apple mixture over
filling and sprinkle with nuts.

Bake 1 ¼ hours or until set. Let cool before removing from pan.

Now that was easy, wasn’t it?
