Ingredients:

Advertisement

3-4 cups of apples, diced, about 2-3 apples, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces (granny smith or honeycrisp)

Glaze

1 cups of confectioners’ sugar

4. Use a measuring cup to drop the batter into the oil, 1/4 cup or 1/3 cup. Fry until the outside is golden brown. Flip and fry the other side until it is golden brown, for a total of 4-5 minutes. You’ll know they’re done if a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. The frying time will depend on the size of your fritter.

5. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the fritters to a paper towel-lined cooling rack and let them cool. Repeat with the rest of the batter.

6. To make the glaze: In a small bowl, combine the sugar, vanilla, and 2 teaspoons of milk or water. Add more milk, one teaspoon at a time, until you have the consistency that you want. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled fritters. Let them dry for a few minutes before you eat them.

2 teaspoons of baking soda

1/2 teaspoon of fine sea salt

1. Make the Crust: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Pulse the graham crackers in a food processor until fine crumbs form.

2. In a medium bowl, stir together 1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and 6 tablespoons of melted butter. Transfer into a 9-inch springform pan with 3 inch tall walls and use a large spoon to press crumbs into the bottom of your springform pan, and going about 1/2 inch up the sides of the pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool to room temperature.

3. Make the Filling: In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, beat the 3 packages of softened cream cheese and 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy without lumps, about 5 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl once to make sure you don’t have chunks of cream cheese.

Turn off the heat, prop the oven door open a little, and let the cheesecake stay in the oven for another 45 minutes. Then remove it from the oven and let it cool to room temperature before covering it with plastic wrap and refrigerating. Serve when fully chilled, at least 4 hours in the refrigerator, or overnight.

6. Before serving, carefully remove cheesecake from springform pan by running a blunt knife along the sides of the cheesecake to release from the springform mold. Add the desired toppings and serve.

7. Freeze the mixing bowl for 10 minutes before you start making the whipped cream. In a cold mixing bowl, add 1 cup of cold heavy whipping cream, 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. Beat on high speed until fluffy and spreadable. Do not over-beat or it will become too buttery. It should take less than 2 minutes to make the whipped cream.
