Instructions

Chunky Applesauce

  • 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.

Crust

  • For the crust crush graham crackers and mix with butter and sugar. Pat down into the bottom of a greased spring form pan.

Cheesecake

  • 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.
  • Refrigerate 4-6 hours. Cut & serve. Enjoy!
  • Sprinkle with some additional crushed graham crackers on top.
