How to Make Apple Cinnamon Cheesecake Recipe

I learned how to make apple cinnamon cheesecake recipe although it is not as popular as some of the other cheesecake recipes but do not be deceived. The taste of creamy cheese with apples is a flavor not to be overlooked. Even when I take a break to have a piece of apple for a snack I almost always have a small piece of cheese with it. It is a great combination! When you learn how to make apple cinnamon cheesecake recipe, you will know when adding the cinnamon to the recipe you must ask “how can it get any better”? This spice is a natural for apple recipes. 


Nutmeg is another spice which is often used in apple recipes; most of the time pairing up with cinnamon. These two work well together.


I have been told when I learned how to make apple cinnamon cheesecake recipes it was created in England. That may well be but I would not be surprised if it didn’t originate here in the United States. We grow so many apples; all my life we were able to eat apples when we did not have any other fruit; We could only make strawberry recipes a very brief period in spring from our berry patch. Not only do we grow apples in abundance but they do stay good for a long time. This means we could pick the apples in the fall and when stored properly we would have the fruit for a large part of the year.


I am sure with the abundant supply of fresh apples throughout most of the states and the passion for a creamy cheesecake, this apple cinnamon cheesecake recipe very well could have been created here. Also convincing me of this theory is the fact that all my recipes are made with cream cheese rather than ricotta recipes or other types of cheese. This is truly an American way of making these delicious recipes.
