Today's Baking with Dorrie recipe is Brown Sugar Apple Cheesecake and can be found here, or on page 238 of Baking, from My Home to Yours.
I changed the recipe quite a bit. First, I used gingerbread graham crackers for the crust instead of ginger snaps. I had never seen them before and wanted to give them a try. They are awesome for crusts! However just eating them plain...I don't know. The ginger flavor is too strong. I was going to take the leftover packs to school for snacks for the kids but I don't think they would care for them. I 'll still try though and see what they think.
The next thing I did was cut the recipe in half and make just a small cheese cake. I also decided not to do the apple layer. Believe it or not I am not a fan of fruit on my cheese cake. I like it plain.
I love cinnamon and I could really taste it in every rich, creamy bite. This was a fun recipe to try..and we enjoyed it very much!
