Cinnamon Apple Mini Cheesecakes

These Cinnamon Apple Mini Cheesecakes are packed with flavor & very simple to prepare. 

During the fall, I get bushels of fresh apples from an orchard in the North Georgia mountains (they are better than anything you can get in the grocery store, absolutely addictive) and I go crazy with them. I make all the apple recipes that I possibly can, all my favorites, and then I make some more. I also put a whole bunch of apple filling up in the freezer or I will can it. I also make several loafs of our favorite apple danish bread for the freezer as well. When I go straight to the orchard, I get fabulous deals on the amount of apples that I buy & it’s really worth it to take the time to put up some for apple pies and such months down the road when the fresh apples just aren’t tasting as good as they are right now.

Anyhow – in case you haven’t stepped outside lately, it is definitely fall. In the mornings, it’s winter. 😉 I have a fair abundance of different variety of apples going on in my kitchen right now, so I’ve been playing around a good bit with them and came up with some definite winners.

One of those creations are these Cinnamon Apple Mini Cheesecakes and they are downright heavenly.

Cheesecake is one of those treats that’s so very hard for me to resist. It’s rich yet light and oh so creamy. You just want to close your eyes and sigh with enjoyment with each & every bite. I have not yet met a cheesecake that I didn’t like & as much as I love plain cheesecake, I also really enjoy coming up with new flavors. Some example of others I’ve created are Lemon Blackberry Cheesecake, Red Velvet Cheesecake, Sweet Potato Cheesecake (the praline glaze on that one, OMGOSH) and my personal favorite – Maple Bacon Praline Cheesecake (which actually have won a couple of cooking contests, I might add). Now, I’m adding these little gems to the list.
