Autumn Apple Cheesecake

Apple Cheesecake

Let’s cut right to the chase: it’s fall (read: it’s apple season). And that means apples are everywhere! Why not use them in your next delicious dessert concoction? I say we should which is why this autumn-flavored cheesecake recipe from Recipe4Living caught my eye. Not only is it a cheesecake (which in most cases is good enough!) but it incorporates apples and cinnamon in a very delicious way. So if you’re looking for something to bring to a potluck or just an impressive dessert for a gathering at your own place, try this one on for size!
