I made this yesterday and it was delicious. I had never used a springform pan before, but this was pretty easy. The pan I had was dark instead of shiny, but I wrapped the outside of the pan in aluminum foil, shiny side out, and the crust was perfect (not overly browned). My friend made the caramel and apple toppings, so I can't speak to how easy those might be to make, but they tasted delicious on top of the cheesecake. I was really pleased with the way this turned out.

DO NOT USE GLASS PIE PANS FOR THIS ONE. My rating may not be the recipe's fault. I just recently moved and had to leave all my baking stuff behind so I made this in glass pie pans instead of the 9" Spring-Form Pan it calls for. Well, it didn't turn out as awesome as I was hoping. They came out looking BEAUTIFUL, but what I didn't like was that the cheese cake layer was so thin compared to the fat layer of dry floury crust that resulted. Perhaps the crust wouldn't have risen as much in a metal pan? The overall taste was ok, but not amazing. I think it's worth another try just to see how great it would be in the right pan.

The absolute best cheesecake I have ever made. A bit time consuming but well worth it.

this recipe was very good, and the thing that probably made the most difference was the caramel sauce. I did use one package of fat-free cream cheese, and the other was reduced-fat. Also, I used Splenda instead of sugar in the cheesecake part. This saved a ton of excess fat and calories in an otherwise extremely rich dessert, and I don't think taste was compromised. I did cook the apples a lot longer than the recipe said, as I like my apples .to be soft, not crunchy.

Are the ingredients and instructions for the Brownie crust available???

This recipe does not have a chocolate brownie crust. Rather the crust is an apple brownie - sort of like a blonde brownie but with chopped apple. the step for making the brownie is when you combine the brown sugar, melted butter, and remaining egg, then add the flour and next 3 ingredients.

Ummmmm....where's the brownie crust?...feel like I'm missing something... :~(

All of the ingredients and the recipe are there. You make the brownie batter separate from the cheesecake, and pour the brownie in first over the pecans. Then pour the cheesecake on that and bake. I've made four of them following the directions to the T and they have all been amazing. Enjoy.
