Apple-Nut Cheesecake


Need some new quick easy crock-pot recipes for dessert? Why not give this simple cheesecake recipe a try. Friends and family will love this recipe for plain cheesecake. It's an easy to make cheesecake that avoids the oven.


1 cup graham cracker crumbs

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

2 tablespoon sugar

3 tablespoon butter, melted

1/4 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts

16 ounce cream cheese

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated white sugar

2 large eggs

3 tablespoon heavy whipping cream

1 tablespoon corn-starch

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 large apple, thinly sliced (about 1 1/2 cups)

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 cup sugar

1 tablespoon finely chopped pecans or walnuts


1. Combine graham cracker crumbs, 2 tablespoons sugar, cinnamon and butter; pat into a 7-inch spring form pan.

2. Beat granulated white sugar and brown sugar into cream cheese until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs, whipping cream, corn-starch, and vanilla. Beat for about 3 minutes on medium speed of a hand-held electric mixer.

3. Pour mixture into the prepared crust.

4. Combine apple slices with remaining sugar, cinnamon and nuts; place topping evenly over the top of cheesecake.

5. Place the cheesecake on a rack (or "ring" of aluminium foil to keep it off the bottom of the pot) in the crock-pot. Cover and cook on high for 2 1/2 to 3 hours.

6. Let stand in the covered pot (after turning it off) for about 1 to 2 hours, until cool enough to handle. Cool thoroughly before removing pan sides. Chill before serving.
