Foodie Friday: Caramel Apple Cheesecake
When I set out to make this cheesecake, I found another thing that can go wrong. When you improvise the recipe a bit too much. In this case, I think that is what made the cheesecake not set. That and the fact that you cover it in caramel sauce and nuts so you can't really tell if it is done or not.
Never the less, this was a delicious dessert. Maybe not quite the usual consistency of a cheesecake, but you can't really go wrong when you combine cream cheese, apples, caramel, and pecans.
I got the idea for the recipe from the Taste of Home website. I tried to substitute apple pie filling for the apples and I think that was where I went wrong. However, one thing I did that went well was to use ice cream caramel topping rather than making my own. (I really hate peeling the wrappers off the caramel candies. Pain.In.The. Butt. Squeezing caramel out of a bottle, much easier!)
