Ingredients

For the Crust

  • 12 Graham Cracker Sheets
  • 50 Nilla Wafer Cookies
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 12 tablespoons butter melted

For the Cheesecake

  • 2 8-ounce packages cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar plus 2 tablespoons, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 Granny Smith apples peeled, cored, and finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

For the Topping:

  • 1 cup brown sugar firmly packed
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup butter softened

Instructions

  • Line a 9x13” pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Make the Crust: Pulse graham crackers and Nilla Wafer cookies in a food processor until they are fine crumbs. Place in a bowl and stir in cinnamon and melted butter. Press into prepared pan. Bake for 8 minutes, while preparing filling.
  • Beat cream cheese, eggs, sour cream, sugar, and vanilla with a hand held or stand mixer. Place apples in a small bowl and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon.
  • Make the topping by mixing all topping ingredients in a medium bowl with a hand mixer.
  • Pour cream cheese mixture over hot crust. Sprinkle with apples. Sprinkle evenly with topping. Bake for 40-45 minutes (mine took 43). Cool to room temperature and then chill for at least 3 hours before cutting.
