Start with making the chunky applesauce. Set up a cutting board next to a pot and cube your apples. Put them into the pot and add salt, vanilla, butter, corn starch, cinnamon, nutmeg and apple juice. Bring to a boil and cook for around 10 minutes.
Take off the heat and set aside to cool while the crust and cheesecake filling are prepared.
For the crust crush graham crackers and mix with butter and sugar. Pat down into the bottom of a greased spring form pan.
In a mixing bowl combine the cheese cake ingredients: cream cheese, sugar, brown sugar and cool whip. Mix with electric mixer until all combined.
Once the applesauce has cooled down a bit add to the top of the graham cracker crust. On top of that add the cheesecake mixture.
