How To Make Cheesecake Stuffed Apples Recipe

This Cheesecake Stuffed apple recipe combines 2 favorite desserts into one, cheesecake and baked apples. 

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is all of the food like most people. In particular, I, Alyssa am a sucker for a good dessert!

The problem is, by the time dessert rolls around, I’ve usually stuffed myself silly. And I’m struggling to find room for the 5 varieties of treats ahead of me.

Luckily, these Cheesecake Stuffed Apples slightly rectify the situation by combining two favorite desserts into one: cheesecake and baked apples.

I say “slightly” because they’re so good that you’ll want to eat more than one… which consequently means you’re stuck in the same dilemma of trying to find enough room.

But then again, when dessert is concerned, who doesn’t have enough room?!

How To Make Cheesecake Stuffed Apples

1 – Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2 – Using a sharp knife and spoon, scoop out the core, seeds and most of the inside of the apple. 

 I find a grapefruit spoon to be the most helpful. Make sure to leave some fruit on the bottom and around the edges.

Toss out the core, but reserve the remaining apple for the filling.

Continue on until you’ve hollowed out all of the apples.

3 – Then, place them in a lightly greased glass baking dish. Set aside.

To make the filling:

4 – In the bowl of a stand mixer beat, together the cream cheese, caramel sauce, vanilla, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and egg until smooth and creamy.

5 – Chop up the apple you reserved from the previous step into small pieces.

6 – Toss those into the cream cheese mixture. Then, stir for a few more seconds.

7 – Scoop the cream cheese mixture into each of the apples, filling them up to the top.

Side note: If you have any extra filling, pour it into a small, oven proof ramekin, place it in a glass baking dish, add about ½ an inch of water around the ramekin, and then bake it alongside the apples.

8 – Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.

9 – Meanwhile, mix up the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl.

After the apples have baked for 30 minutes, remove them from the oven.

10 – Sprinkle graham cracker topping on each.

11 –Then. place them back in the oven for another  20-30 minutes, or until set.

12 – Place the apples in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours to allow them to fully cool and set.

These can also be made and stored in the fridge up to 24 hours in advance.

Serve with a drizzle of caramel sauce.

How To Store Stuffed Apples?

For short-term storage, you can keep them in the refrigerator. 

Just place them on a plate or in a container lined with paper towels, and make sure they’re covered. 

They should stay fresh for 1-2 days this way.

If you want to store them for a longer period of time, you can freeze them. 

First, place the apples on a plate or in a container lined with parchment paper. 

Then, put them in the freezer for a few hours until they’re frozen solid. 

Once they’re frozen, you can transfer them to an airtight container or freezer bag. 

They should stay fresh for up to 2 months this way.

How Can I Make Cheesecake Dairy Free?

There are a few ways that you can make cheesecake dairy-free. 

One way is to use a dairy-free cheese in your cheesecake recipe. 

Another way is to use plant-based milk in your cheesecake recipe. You can also find dairy-free cheesecake recipes online and in grocery stores.

Some plant-based milks that you can use in your cheesecake recipe include almond milk, cashew milk, and soy milk.

Should I Served Cheesecake Stuffed Apple Hot or Cold?

When it comes to cheesecake stuffed apples, there is no right or wrong answer when it comes to whether you should serve them hot or cold. 

It ultimately comes down to personal preference. 

Some people prefer the taste of cold cheesecake, while others prefer the creaminess of the heated cheesecake. 

If you are unsure which way to go, you can always try both and see which you like better. 

No matter how you serve them, cheesecake stuffed apples are sure to be a hit!
