Serve these bite-size cheesecakes with a glass of Moscato!

Mini Caramel Apple Cheesecakes


1 cup graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons butter, melted


2 – 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs, lightly beaten


1 large apple, peeled and finely chopped
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Dash ground cloves
1/2 cup butterscotch-caramel ice cream topping


~Preheat oven to 350°. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.

~In a small bowl, mix cracker crumbs, sugar, and cinnamon; stir in melted butter. Spoon one rounded tablespoon crumb mixture into each muffin cup; press down with a narrow glass or spoon.

~In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Beat in vanilla. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until blended. Pour over crusts.

~Bake until centers are set, 15 to 18 minutes (do not overbake). Cool in pan on a wire rack 30 minutes.

~Right before serving, in a small skillet, cook and stir apple with butter, sugar, cinnamon, and cloves over medium heat until tender, four to five minutes; stir in caramel topping. Spoon over cheesecakes.

~Refrigerate leftovers.
