For this article, we chose to welcome fall and all it brings with a tempting apple treat that anyone can make at home!

Tip: We used Granny Smith apples but any type works well for this recipe!


1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
3 tbsp. granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted  
16 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
4 cups apples: peeled, cored
   & thinly sliced
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped pecans


1 – Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175º C). In a large bowl, stir together the first 5 ingredients. Press into bottom of a 9-inch springform pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
2 – In a large bowl, combine cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar. Mix at medium speed until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, mixing well after each one, then blend in vanilla and pour filling into slightly cooled baked crust.
3 – In a small bowl, stir together 1/3 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Toss the cinnamon-sugar mixture with the sliced apples to coat. Spoon (or arrange for beautiful presentation) apple mixture over cream cheese layer and sprinkle with 1/4 cup chopped pecans.
4 – Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 70 minutes. With a knife, loosen cake from rim of pan. Let cool, then remove the rim of the pan. Chill cake before serving.
