Caramel Apple Pecan Cheesecake is a caramel cheesecake topped with cooked apples and pecans tossed in caramel sauce.
The other day I decided to have a little fun and count how many cheesecake-related recipes I had on the blog and how many blocks of cream cheese I’ve used. The answer: 38 recipes and 63 blocks of cream cheese (not including any recipe testing/redos or any non-cheesecake recipes using cream cheese). Needless to say, I use a ton of cream cheese (and somehow I still use more butter than that). Now the count is up to 39 recipes and 66 blocks of cream cheese with this Caramel Apple Pecan Cheesecake. Last month I brought you a no bake caramel apple cheesecake. This month, I wanted to bake a full-sized cheesecake that screamed fall. Since October also means going to the local apple festival, I knew I would have tons of apples to use in my baking. What goes better with apples than caramel? Funny thing is I actually hate caramel apples on a stick but love the flavor combination. It’s mainly a texture thing; the apples in this cheesecake are much softer and easier to eat. Plus this is cheesecake. Everything is better when you add cheesecake to it.
