Chunky Applesauce Cheesecake

I can’t wait to share with you one of my favorite fall desserts, Chunky Applesauce Cheesecake. Creamy cheesecake and a graham cracker crust filled with a beautiful chunky applesauce filling.

Ah, fall! You are finally here!  We are cooling down this week after an extended heat wave and I am so happy.  The heat, humidity, and mosquitoes have been bad here in Southwest Michigan so I am ready to start seeing the leaves fall, breathe in the cool crisp air and enjoy all that this beautiful state has to offer for the season.

I call this ‘chunky applesauce’ because this is the applesauce recipe that I make for my family.  If I have a few apples lying around I will whip this up as a side for dinner.  And since I honestly cannot resist a cheesecake this is a chunky applesauce cheesecake combines two of my favorite things. 

Ingredients for Chunky Applesauce Cheesecake on a counter.

How to make Chunky Applesauce:

If you wanted to just make the applesauce as I do, you would just use this step alone.  I’m sure your family will love it, it’s perfect with a pork roast and mashed potatoes.

Set up a cutting board next to a pot and cube your apples.  Put them into the pot and add salt, vanilla, butter, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, and apple juice.  Stir to combine and bring to a boil cooking for around 10 minutes.

Take off the heat and set aside to cool if you are using for the cheesecake.  If not, serve immediately.

How to make the Chunky Applesauce Cheesecake:

In a mixing bowl combine the cheesecake ingredients: cream cheese, sugar, brown sugar, and cool whip.

How to make a Chunky Applesauce Cheesecake step-by-step.

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.

Let the cheesecake refrigerate for 4-6 hours.
