Ingredients

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

CHEESECAKE:

  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs , lightly beaten

TOPPING:

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

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. In a small bowl, mix cracker crumbs, sugar and cinnamon; stir in melted butter. Spoon 1 rounded tablespoon crumb mixture into each muffin cup; press down with a narrow glass or spoon.
