One of our customers reached out to us to ask if we had this Apple Harvest Cheesecake recipe that was posted on the packaging of our graham shells in the 1990’s.
We were able to dig up this classic, and we thought it would be great to share with you this week! It’s always a crowd pleaser and great for family gatherings, or as a dessert after a filling Thanksgiving Dinner!

Thanks so much! Your original recipe on the Bama label called for 1 can of Apple Pie Filling with extra cinnamon added before spooning over cream cheese mixture, then sprinkling with nuts. I started making mine with 2 ea 8-oz cream cheese, which fits perfectly in the larger graham cracker crust (10 servings). I was hoping your pic would show the Apple/Nut topping, which does not sink to the bottom! Wish I had a pic to share with you, for all the many I’ve made.
