Tips for Making Apple Butter Cheesecake

– Use store-bought or homemade apple butter in this recipe.

– Be light-handed when you're swirling the apple butter into the cream cheese filling. You don't want to touch the crust.

– Patience is key – don't be tempted to take your cheesecake out of the fridge before it's set. Give it at least 6 hours, or ideally, refrigerate it overnight.
