This recipe has four parts to it. The first part is preparing the base layer. This is a quick and easy step. The apples that are part of this recipe also need to be chopped. In addition, the apples are cooked in seasoning before they are put on top of the base layer. Then the cream cheese layer needs to be made, and that layer is poured over the apple layer and the base layer. Then this three-layer cheesecake is baked. Before serving, a caramel sauce is drizzled over the whole thing. Do not skip this final step. The recipe includes how to make this sauce from scratch, and it is fabulous. It will absolutely be the coup de grace for this little dessert. You can sometimes struggle to make a caramel sauce because it can be a bit tricky. It requires that you melt sugar, and that process can quickly go wrong, and the sugar can burn. But, even if it burns, do not be discouraged. It is such a quick process to make that you can begin again. Have patience when you make caramel sauce. The results are worth the small effort that it requires.
