Caramel Apple Cheesecake Revisited

Yum
"When I was looking through recipes and trying to decide what I should make for my sweet Hubby's Birthday this year, I came across my post from three years ago for Caramel Apple Cheesecake.  I knew that it would be a great surprise if I made it for him and I was right, He loved it!  It was so yummy that I decided that I would share the recipe again.  If you need a delicious dessert recipe this Fall, this one is it."    


1 cup graham cracker crumbs (about 9 graham crackers from 14.4 ounce package)
3 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 Tablespoons butter, melted
1- (21 ounce) can apple pie filling

Combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, cinnamon and butter. Press onto the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake at 325 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven.  Spoon a single layer of apple pie filling on top of the crust and spread to within 1-inch of the edge of the pan.  

Turn oven temperature up to 450 degrees.  Prepare cheesecake layer.     


Cheesecake Layer
4- (8 ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons flour
4 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 Tablespoon vanilla

Combine cream cheese, sugar and flour. Mix with an electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one. Blend in sour cream and vanilla. Pour over apple pie filling.

Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. Lower the oven to 250 degrees and continue baking for 1 hour.  Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely on a cooling rack. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before removing rim of springform pan.


TOPPINGS
1- (12 ounce) jar caramel ice cream topping (We like to use Hershey's or Smucker's Hot Caramel.)
1- (4 ounce) package or 1 cup chopped pecans, toasted*

When ready to serve, top slices of cheesecake with heated caramel topping and toasted pecans.
