Ingredients

For crust:

  • 2 cups finely crushed prepared oatmeal cookies
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 6 tbsp. butter melted

For cheesecake:

  • 24 oz. (3 - 8 oz packages) cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs at room temperature
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 large apples peeled, cored, sliced about 1/4-inch thick
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp. sugar

For streusel:

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • vanilla ice cream
  • 1 jar caramel ice cream sauce

Instructions

For crust:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine oatmeal cookie crumbs, oats, sugar, and butter.

  2. Press into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan.

For cheesecake:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until creamy.

  2. Add sugar, beating until combined.

  3. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

  4. Add vanilla.

  5. Add pumpkin puree, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice.

  6. Pour cheesecake batter over crust.

  7. In a medium bowl, combine sliced apples, cinnamon, and sugar, tossing to coat.

  8. Carefully layer the apple slices over the cheesecake batter, working from the edges to the center - it will keep the batter from raising higher at the edges. Work from the edges toward the middle.

For streusel:

  1. In a small bowl, combine oats, flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon.

  2. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly.

  3. Sprinkle it evenly over the apple layer, working from the edges to the center. This cheesecake will be up to the very top of the pan, and that's okay! It's tall, but it won't spill over!

  4. Bake at 325 degrees for 70-80 minutes (it will take a while - it's very thick), or until the center appears set when jiggled.

  5. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Chill thoroughly, if desired.

  6. Run a knife along the edges, and release springform pan. Transfer to a serving platter to cut and serve.

  7. Top with ice cream and caramel sauce!
