No bake apple caramel cheesecakes

It’s like a little apple pie combined with caramel cheesecake. With this recipe, you can easily make delicious no bake apple caramel cheesecakes dessert.

How to make individual no bake cheesecakes?

Start with small glasses or glass jars. These are really cute. You build the dessert in layers, starting by crushed cookies. Top that with your cheesecake mixture and finish it with your topping. Warm caramelized apple for this recipe. It’s really easy to make small one person cheesecakes as you can see!

You can prepare this cheesecake dessert very well, which I think is perfect. Put the prepared dessert in the refrigerator and take it out when needed.

However, you can also prepare the base (cookie + cheesecake layer), and make the apple mixture only just before you want to serve the dessert. This way, you have little cheesecakes with warm apples as a topping. Delicious!

In the last case, you can prepare the apple layer as well. Add a little lemon juice to keep the apple pieces fresh and store them in the refrigerator until you need them. I made them this way for Christmas and it worked perfect.

Apple caramel cheesecake recipe

For this dessert, I decided to first heat the apple in a pan and caramelize it with some sugar. Warm apple pieces work incredibly well in a dessert. In this case, I combined it with whipped cream, cookies and cream cheese.

For the cookies, I chose Bastogne cookies, which are a kind of spice cookies. It’s hard to find this particular cookie outside The Netherlands and a few other European countries, but any spice cookie will do. Biscoff cookies are a good alternative for example.

Can I add pecans or other nuts to this cheesecake recipe?

Of course! Chop some pecans or other nuts, add them to the apple mixture in the saucepan and enjoy your pecan caramel cheesecakes.

Which caramel bits do you use?

I used small caramel fudge pieces. You can buy them or cut bigger pieces up. These caramel bits are also perfectly fine.

How big are the glasses for individual cheesecakes?

First of all: you can decide yourself how full you want to make your glass jars. I used diamond shaped glasses that are almost exactly the same as these ones.
