Apple Cinnamon Cheesecake
Why I Love This Recipe
I got this recipe off an internet search but I have altered the recipe a little bit b/c the original crust in the recipe didn't sound good at all.

1/2 cup (1 stick/4 oz./113g) margarine or butter, melted
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 300°F/150°C.
In a mixing bowl add the chopped nuts, cinnamon, graham cracker crumbs, and the butter. Mix well. Press into the bottom of a 9 in round baking pan or a 9 in springform pan. Place in the oven for a little bit while it's preheating (about 5-8 minutes).
In large mixer bowl, beat cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Add eggs and juice concentrate; mix well. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 45 minutes or until center springs back when lightly touched. Cool.
In large skillet, cook apples in remaining 1 tablespoon butter or margarine until tender-crisp. Arrange on top of cheesecake; drizzle with Cinnamon Apple Glaze. Chill. Refrigerate leftovers.
