Ingredients

Cheesecake

  • 6 golden Oreos
  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup full fat sour cream, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, room temperature

Crumble Topping

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened

Apples

  • 2 granny smith apples (peeled, cored, and finely chopped)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

Caramel sauce

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 12 cup muffin pan with cupcake liners.
  • Twist the golden Oreos in half and place one in each muffin cup, pretty side down.
  • Make the cheesecake mixture by beating the cream cheese at medium-low speed until smooth and fluffy. Add the sour cream and continue beating until smooth. Then add the sugar and vanilla extract and mix well. Finally, beat in the egg.
  • Evenly divide the cheesecake mixture among the Oreo crusts. My favorite way to do this is to put the mixture in a disposable frosting bag or a large Ziploc bag. Cut off one of the corners and pipe in the cheesecake mixture in a spiral pattern.
  • Prepare the apples by mixing the finely chopped apples with cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar in a medium bowl. Sprinkle the apples on top of the cheesecake mixture.
  • To make the crumble topping, mix together the dry ingredients with a fork and then add the butter and mix well.  Sprinkle on top of the cheesecake and apples.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Cool at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. Then prepare the caramel by heating up for about 30 seconds until pourable. Put the caramel sauce in a frosting bag or a large Ziploc bag. Cut off a small corner and drizzle the caramel sauce on top of the cheesecakes.
  • Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.
