Apple crumble or cheesecake… how do you choose?! That’s exactly the dilemma we were in before deciding on this delicious Apple Crumble Cheesecake. Combining two desserts is just the solution when you have a dessert but can’t decide what you want. If you love a warming apple crumble, but want the creaminess of cheesecake, this might just become one of your new favorite desserts. It combines the classic apple crumb cake (enjoyed especially over fall) with a creamy cheesecake.

The dessert is packed with apple flavor, with extra crunch not only from the biscuit base, but also the crumb on top! Cream cheese creates a delicate cheesecake filling, while fresh apples are cooked until soft and caramelized. Cinnamon adds the warmth that you’d expect from a traditional apple crumble. This is definitely a dessert you’d want to make this fall!

How To Make Apple Crumble Cheesecake

This cheesecake consists of four components. First the apples are prepared. Peeled and chopped apples are cooked with the sugar until they start to soften and caramelized. Set them aside to cool down before using.

The biscuit layer is made by mixing together crushed biscuits and melted butter. It’s pressed into the pan to form a base. The filling is made by whisking together cream cheese and the rest of the filling ingredients until smooth.

Finally, the crumb is created, which will form part of the “apple crumble” of this dessert. These four components are layered into the cake tin and baked until perfection.

Tips

For a no-bake version, swap the crumble on top for a caramel but topping.

Make Apple Crumble Cheesecake bars by making the desserts in a rectangular baking tin and cutting it into squares after baking.

For a shortcut, you can use a cheesecake box mix for the filling.

Use any of your favorite apples. Royal gala apples will work, and even tart Granny Smith apples.
