When you live in apple country, you get the privilege of selecting the apples and recipes you want for year-round enjoyment. Granny Smith apples are tart and crisp. Combined with cinnamon, sugar and nutmeg, they make a delightful topping for a cheesecake of the Pacific Northwest. —Grace Hughes, Oroville, Washington

"I made this in my 9-1/2 inch spring-form. My cheesecake cracked, but no one seemed to mind, and the apple chunks kind of disguised the cracking. The sauce got mixed reviews, but we agreed the cheesecake was good--but maybe we'd prefer a caramel sauce over the top."

"I think I cooked the topping too long but it was still great. Would make this again. The Ginger Snap cookies in the crust really set it off from just being a cheesecake."
