Cooking Instructions

Step 1: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and grease an 8″ or 9″ springform pan with cooking spray.

Step 2: Make the Crust: In a large bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, cinnamon, sugar, and salt.  Press into bottom of prepared pan and up the sides.

Step 3: In a large bowl using a hand mixer (or in the bowl of a stand mixer), beat cream cheese, caramel, and sugar together until completely smooth.  Add eggs, one at a time, then stir in sour cream and vanilla.  Add flour, salt, and cinnamon and beat until just combined.  Pour mixture over crust.

Step 4: In a medium bowl, whisk together brown sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon, and salt, then cut in butter with a fork or pastry cutter.  Scatter apples in an even layer over top of the cheesecake, then top with an even layer of the oat topping.

Step 5: Wrap bottom of pan in aluminum foil and place in a large roasting pan.  Pour in enough boiling water to come up halfway in the baking pan.  Bake until center of cheesecake only slightly jiggles, about 1 hour 30 minutes.

Step 6: Turn off oven, prop open oven door, and let cheesecake cool in oven, 1 hour.  Remove foil and refrigerate cheesecake for at least 4 hours and up to overnight.

Step 7: When ready to serve, drizzle with caramel and serve slices topped with whipped topping, if desired.
