Candied apple pie cheesecake
I don't have a picture of this because it got devoured so quickly. I got this from Kraft Food and family, it was the Philadelphia Cheesecake Contest winner.
1 cup crushed Nabisco Ginger Snaps
3 Tbsp butter melted
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp sugar, divided
2 8 oz pkgs Cream Cheese softened
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup apple pie filling, divided
1/2 cup walnut pieces, divided
1/2 cup toffee bits, divided
Heat oven to 325. Mix ginger snap crmbs, butter and 2 Tbsp sugar; press onto bottom and up side of 9 inch pie plate.
Beat cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla with mixer until blended. Add sour cream; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each just until blended. Stir in half each of pie filling, nuts and toffee. Pour into crust.
Bake 35 min. or until center is almost set. Cool. Refrigerate 4 hours. Top with remaining pie filling, nuts and toffee.
I did not top with the remaining ingredients Kevin thought it was sweet enough. He did put extra walnuts on top though. I don't eat cheesecake, but my mother-in-law, father-in-law, and Kevin said it was the best cheesecake they had ever had.
