An attractive topping of cinnamon-spiced apples slices and a homemade oat-and-walnut crust make this creamy dessert a definite show stopper.

Cinnamon Apple Cheesecake Recipe

Cinnamon Apple Cheesecake

 Flour, oats½ cup butter, softened

¼ cup packed brown sugar

1 cup flour

¼ cup quick-cooking oats

¼ cup finely chopped walnuts

½ tsp. cinnamon

Filling:   2 packages (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened

1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk

½ cup thawed apple juice concentrate

3 eggs, lightly beaten

Topping:   2 medium tart apples, peeled and sliced

1 Tbsp. butter

1 tsp. cornstarch

¼ tsp. cinnamon

¼ cup thawed apple juice concentrate

In a small bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.  Gradually add flour, oats, walnuts and cinnamon until well blended.  Press onto the bottom and 1 ½ inch up the sides of a greased 9 inch springform pan.  Place on baking sheet.  Bake at 325 F. for 10 minutes or until set.  Cool on a wire rack.

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy.  Beat in milk and apple juice concentrate until smooth.  Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined (batter will be thin).  Pour into crust.  Return pan to baking sheet.

Bake at 325 F. for 40-45 minutes or until center is almost set.  Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.  Carefully run knife around edge of pan to loosen; cool 1 hour longer.  Refrigerate overnight.

In a large skillet, cook and stir apples in butter over medium heat until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.  Cool to room temperature.  Arrange the apples over the cheesecake.

In a small saucepan, combine the cornstarch, cinnamon and juice concentrate until smooth.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened.  Immediately brush over apples.  Refrigerate for 1 hour or until chilled.  Refrigerate leftovers.          12 servings
