Apple Strudel Cheesecake Recipe

Publisher Photo
Meet the Cook: Our cheesecake-loving children (now 25, 22, 20 and 19) inspired this recipe I adapted from several others. It was a hit with them because the apples make it less rich and heavy. My family eats it anytime - for breakfast or as a late-night snack - and I serve it for dessert or when company comes for coffee. -Janice White, Encampment, Wyoming

MY REVIEW

Great cheese cake, loved the apple strudel thing.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 16, 2010

This cheesecake has become a family favorite. It is made with less cream cheese than a normal cheesecake, so it is not "quite" as filling as a traditional cheesecake. The apple cinnamon and nut topping is fantastic!

This is a wonderful recipe. I can see this becoming a family favorite.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 26, 2010

My family and I didn't care much for this cheesecake. We had high hopes for it as we all love cheesecake and also apples, but reminded us of a cheesecake we could have purchased at the grocery store. My 17 y/o thinks it would be better with a graham cracker crust and I agree. She is also allergic to nuts, so I didn't use them and they may be a necessary ingredient.

MY REVIEW

I received many compliments on this cheesecake and would make it again. Very nice flavors and looked beautiful too.
