mini caramel apple cheesecakes

October 26, 2018

these cheesecakes are the perfect fall treat; cheesecake with a  swirl of caramel, fresh Michigan apples and a buttery crumble, sweet crumble. you can make them bite-sized or a full pie!

*optional – top them off with my homemade whipped cream

 

I just really, really love my tartlet tray from bon COOK. I've been using it to make mini/bite-sized everything! literally... everything. it is, along with all of bon COOK's stuff, the most convenient cooking equipment. I don't have to mess around with cooking spray or cupcake/muffin liners and after I pop whatever I am making out of the tartlet cavities, there is no mess! cleanup consists of wiping the tartlet tray down with a wet paper towel.

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 325°. Place a bon COOK medium-tartlet tray on a perforated baking sheet.

*if you don’t have bon COOK products, prepare a muffin tray with liners

In a large bowl, mix together all the graham cracker crust ingredients.

Distribute 1 Tbsp. of the mixture into each of the tartlet cavities, pushing it down with the shaper to form a base.

In the bottom of stand mixer, beat the cream cheese until light and fluffy.

With the mixer running, add the eggs, one at a time and the remaining filling ingredients.

Evenly distribute the filling into the tartlet cavities, filling them 90% of the way.

In a large bowl, whisk together the topping ingredients [brown sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon, salt].

Add the cubed butter and either using your fingers or a pastry cutter, break it up into the mixture until a crumble forms.

Top each cavity with a layer of cubed apples and a layer of the crumble topping.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until the cheesecakes are no longer jiggly.

Let cool and then refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until ready to eat!
