And then I felt nostalgic and thinking about the memories how I started the blog and all of a sudden one more time thing tick in my head, when I checked the first post date, it told me that My Third Baby has turned 1 year. (No Eyebrow Raising and Jaw Dropping on the Third Baby, Please!!!), Take it Easy my Friends, I am just talking about my Blog which is my third Baby. :-) And noticed that it is just little over a year that this beautiful baby born for no reason and grew into this pretty thing on the blog space for several reasons. :-)

Okay! Okay! I will stop being little dramatic and will come to the recipe part. I have been planning to shed this recipe to my blog and then when I hit 90th post, I was waiting for my 100th post to feature this superb recipe to make my 100th post special and to celebrate.  And since then saving this one of the best desserts recipe. Now the Wait it Over, let me share the recipe here, Wait a sec, did I tell the name of it? if you haven't checked the title yet, guessing that Special Desert name that's very famous in the Famous city of United States.  and yes you got it Right. Cheese Cake. By this time if you know me well, you know that my deserts are not complete with Fruits and Nuts (Orange Blueberry Loaf, Fruit and Nut Bread are some from the past),  and this one is not an Exception. So here I am presenting, the King of Western Deserts, Cheese Cake Topped with Apple and Pecans, a one is All - Apple Pecan Cheese Cake.

Apple Pecan Cheese Cake
Recipe Source:

Honey Maid Graham Cracker Crumbs - 3/4 cup
Butter (melted) - 1/8 cup
Brown Sugar - 1 Tbsp
Philadelphia Cream Cheese - 2 pkg ( 8 oz each)
Brown Sugar - 3/4 cup
Vanilla - 1/2 tsp
Sour Cream - 1/2 cup ( i used light version)
Eggs - 2
apple - 1 1/2 (medium)
Pecans - 1/3 cup
ground Cinnamon - 1/2 tsp

  1. HEAT oven to 325°F.
  2. LINE 8x8 -inch baking pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan. 
  3. Crumb the Graham Crackers with hand, Mix crumbs, butter and 1 Tbsp. brown sugar; press this mixture onto bottom of pan.
  4. BEAT cream cheese, 1/2 cup brown sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until well blended. Add sour cream; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended. Pour over crust. Combine remaining brown sugar, apples, nuts and cinnamon; spoon over batter.
  5. BAKE 55 min. or until center is almost set. Cool completely. Refrigerate 4 hours. Use foil handles to lift cheesecake from pan before cutting to serve.

Come have a Byte, to celebrate my bloggy baby's Birthday...

  • If you want to bake for larger parties or need bigger size, double these ingredient portions and use 13x9 baking pan.
  • Cooling Completely before chilling is very critical (and needs patience) to get the perfect texture.
  • Usually the center gets sink little bit when you take it out form the oven, after cooling completely it will rebound. 
  • I left it out for almost 3 hours for it to be cool completely.  I have baked it around 3 in the afternoon, kept it in the fridge before bed time, and next morning perfect cheese cake is ready to be served.
