Caramel Apple Cheesecake

Remember in May when I said I was suddenly craving cheesecake all the time? Well it hasn’t gone away, in fact it’s gotten worse. But with Fall right around the corner it gives me an excuse to try new flavors like my latest creation..Caramel Apple Cheesecake!

But before we get to the recipe let me tell you about Apple week. What’s Apple week you ask? Well, I’ve teamed up with a bunch of creative bloggers to bring you Apple recipes all week long! We’re calling it Applicious Week.  Some bloggers will have a recipe each day, others will have one or two.
