Caramel Apple Blondie Cheesecake
This Caramel Apple Blondie Cheesecake is pure caramel apple heaven, I kid you not. It’s an apple spice blondie filled with apples, topped with a no bake caramel cheesecake, topped with cinnamon apples and even more caramel sauce. It’s one of my new favorite desserts ever and the perfect way to start off Apple Week!
This week my bloggy BFF, Julianne, and I will be bringing you all the apple recipes you’ll need for fall! Get ready, because we’ve got some awesome recipes planned.
And before I go any further, I want to thank everyone who read, commented, emailed, etc in response to my post on Friday. Thank you so much for the support. I’m trying to respond to everyone, but haven’t been able to get to everyone yet, so know that I appreciate it SO much!
So this weekend was quite nice. Funny enough, I ended up picking apples at an apple orchard, which I’d never done before. Quite the perfect lead-in to apple week, don’t you think? We aren’t too far south of the mountains – about an hour – so the drive wasn’t too bad. I didn’t have to drive, so that made it even better. 🙂
And since I’ve already done all the baking for this week, I get to just eat all the apples. Apples have been my snack of choice recently and I got a variety of apple types, so it’ll be fun to try them all. My bag actually broke trying to fit in just one more apple type we found on the way out. Oops!
The orchards were beautiful too. Nestled right in the mountains. It’s amazing the number of apples there were. It made me want to round up a bunch of horses and bring them in the orchard to eat all the discarded ones off the ground. Weird, right? For some reason the animal I think of feeding apples to is horses. I think we fed some horses apples when I was a kid. I guess it stuck. 🙂
I can’t even enough to explain to you just how good this cheesecake is. I want to eat it every day. The blondie alone is the jam. It’s got plenty of tasty spices and apples baked right in. It’s chewy, not too heavy and absolutely delicious. The only thing that could make it better is topping it with no bake caramel cheesecake.
Even I was surprised at just how good this caramel cheesecake is. So smooth and creamy. And sometimes caramel as a flavor can be hard to get to really come through in something like a cheesecake, but this caramel flavor comes through perfectly! I used the caramel sauce that I posted a couple weeks ago and it was amazing. The chewiness of the blondie with the smoothness of this cheesecake is a killer combo.
I topped with cinnamon apples and even more caramel, because why wouldn’t you? It’s irresistible.
I took it over to my brother’s house the other night when we were having dinner over there. Initially everyone but the hubs turned it down. In fairness, they hadn’t seen it yet. Then I brought a slice down to the basement for the hubs and my brother immediately changed his mind. By the time he came upstairs, my sister in law (still in the kitchen) had gone from wanting just one bite to try it, to eating an entire piece and telling everyone they had to try it. “Restaurant quality,” she said. There was lots of moaning going on – the sign of a job well done.
So yea, you definitely don’t want to miss out on this Caramel Apple Blondie Cheesecake. It’ll rock your socks off. And get pumped, because there’s more apple-y goodness coming up this week!
