Ingredients
  

Crust

  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 3 tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter melted

Filling

  • 2 8 oz. packages cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups thinly-sliced apples Granny Smith, peel removed
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

Instructions
 

Crust

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix crumbs, pecans, sugar, cinnamon and butter. Press into 3 mini springform pans (4 in. diameter). You can also use a 9-inch springform pan to make one large cheesecake. The crust should be about 1/4 inch thick. If you are using the mini springform pans, you will probably have some of the crumb mixture left over. Bake 8-10 minutes, until crust is firm and lightly browned.

Filling

  • Using a mixer, beat the cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar at medium speed until well-blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each. Stir in vanilla. Pour over crust.
  • In a small bowl, combine 1/3 cup sugar and cinnamon. Toss apples in sugar/cinnamon mixture. Arrange apples on top of cheesecakes. Top with chopped pecans.
  • Wrap bottom of springform pan(s) with aluminum foil, about halfway up the sides of the pan. Lay pans in a baking pan or cookie sheet with sides. Pour in hot water until water is just below the top of the foil. Bake for 45-50 minutes if making mini cheesecakes, 1 hour and 10 minutes if making a large cheesecake. Refrigerate cheesecake overnight or at least 4 hours.
