What a delicious cheesecake. I got rave reviews for it. The prep time takes a lot more than 15 mins, though. Unless you have a personal staff who will chop up your pecans and apples for you. Anyway, it was yummy and I will probably make it again.
I made this cheese cake last night and it was wonderful! We have a large family and everyone loved it! Definitely will make it again. I agree with the comment that it did turn out a bit darker than the picture and the apples werent as tender as I had expected, but the slight crispness to them was actually good. I used Granny smith apples.
This is a winner recipe. Yes it did take long than 10 minutes to prep, but was well werth the time. It is slightly darker than the picture. I found that the apples stayed on top of the mixture if they were not to large of pieces. I did'nt add brown sugar to the crust, but it did'nt seem to change the flavor, it was as it says superb. I will make it again. Iplan to freeze some of the slices.
Co worker made this awsome cheesecake. I just had to have the recipe. I think its one of my favs now. !! You have to make it.
My husband, daughter, her boyfriend & I made this together an dit was still longer than 10 minutes to prep I'd say more like 30 minutes with 4 of us working on it. I substituted cinnamon graham crackers that I crushed myself and fat free sour cream and cream cheese. This recipe is to die for its like heaven. we are all cheesecake lovers and it could hold its own to famous cheesecake slices! I was proud of the fact that we made it. Worth every minute of prep time!
While this recipe does require more than the stated 10 mins. of preparation, it was well worth the effort! To save time, buy a bad of frozen peeled & sliced apples from an orchard/farmer's market. I have a sweet tooth and added the caramel topping (squares melted on the stove with some sweetened condensed milk to make it softer) which made this recipe to die for! Next time I make it, I plan to add some chocolate topping for a different twist.
I disagree that this was not time consuming. Washing, peeling, coring and chopping the apples plus the nuts and then mixing that topping definitely took me more than 10 minutes. But I will say I think it was worth it. I'd make it again for sure. Yes, the actual cheesecake was slightly darker than as depicted but my topping pretty much stayed on top of the cake. Maybe you over-softened the cream cheese so the filling was too soft. Mine came out fairly firm after mixed. I used half regular cream cheese and half light. Also, I used half light sour cream and half regular. Everyone loved it!
My problem was with the apple topping. The cheesecake did not look like the one in the book. The problem was when I put the topping on top of the cheesecake, the apples fell down into the cheese mixture. Did you guys bake the cheesecake for a short time before you placed the apple mixture on top? Another thing. Why does your cheesecake look white where mine is tan, I know it's from the brown sugar??????????? Could/should I have used white sugar? Page 57 Fall 2006 Please give me a answer ASAP.
This was delicious. Not difficult nor time consuming. You have to core, peel and chop 3 apples as well as chop some walnuts - it adds 10 minutes max. Crunchy topping on creamy cheesecake. A winner.
It was alot of work. The topping was the only good part about the entire dessert. Won't make this again...
