Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/3 cup butter, melted
Glazed apples:
4 medium cooking apples, peeled and cored
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
Cheese Filling:
2 pkgs. (8 ounce each) cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
4 eggs


Crust: Mix all ingredients. Press firmly on bottom and 1 inch up the sides of 9-inch springform pan. Set aside.

Glazed Apples: Cut apples into 16ths. In large skillet, combine apples with remaining ingredients. Cook until apples begin to caramelize, turning often. Arrange over bottom of crust.

Cheese Filling: Beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in sugar, vanilla, and lemon peel. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Pour over apples.

Bake in preheated 325 degrees F oven 60-70 minutes, or until lightly browned. Turn oven off and allow cheesecake to remain in oven 1 hour with door slightly ajar. Cool in pan. Chill.
