TWD: Brown Sugar-Apple Cheesecake


I feel guilty for dissing that poor lemon tart in my previous post, so let's move on. It's a lot more fun to talk about a Tuesday's with Dorie recipe that I *did* like. Brown Sugar-Apple Cheesecake was chosen by Jaime of Good Eats 'n Sweet Treats in February of last year. (I'm working on making the recipes from before I joined TWD.) Jamie was the third person to sign up for TWD and she's got lots of great posts to share.

It doesn't look like much on the outside, but cut into that baby and you'll find apples and cinnamon galore.



I fall hard for just about anything with apples and cinnamon, so naturally, I loved this cheesecake. So did everyone else who was lucky to be in the right place at the right time.

OK, that's all I got to say. If you'd like to see the recipe, please stop by Jamie's fabulous site, or get yourself a copy of Dorie Greenspan's book "Baking, From my Home to Yours".

I'm a sucker for anything with apples and cinnamon, I've never made cheesecake and might have to make this one as my first!

First I look at the top picture: Ah! Okay... a cheesecake, most regular there is. Then I look further and realize there are great big chunks of apple in there! Woahhh... gotta hide that page from bubby... if not, i'll be asked for that cake every other day!
It looks amazing, Jacque! Mouthwatering!

Don't feel guilty ... I love the honesty. i'm such a sucker for any lemon dessert and it looks fabulous so if you told me it was fabulous, I most certainly would have run out to make it only to be terribly disappointed! This cheesecake looks fabulous. I love apple desserts.

YUM! When I made this recipe it didn't look as good as yours. It actually was horrible looking. It still was delicious.

I have a list of recipes I want to make from my pre-TWD days, too. This one is on it, for sure. Looks incredibly good.

I love making cheesecakes and I've not made this one. Have to give it go, especially if I could come close to making it look as beautiful as yours OMG. That first photo is luscious, but then wait, there is the "slice" photo. .... Well, need I say more? Thanks for giving us something else to covet. he he

Mmm, this cheesecake looks so amazingly delicious. I can't even begin to tell you! I can't wait to make this in my kitchen so I too can cut into that amazing goodness. Sorry I've been away from blogging/commenting for so long. I just finished up with my exams and am finally getting around to my google reader :) Everything looks delicious!
