This is a soft texture cheesecake with a wonderful apple, caramel and struesel topping. Should chill overnight. (Source: I saw this pasted into one of the talk threads several weeks ago, but after attempting to contact the poster in the message board with no results, I assume she is not posting it here...so after trying it, I did)

This cheesecake was so good! I was trying to find a recipe similar to Claim Jumper Restaraunt and this one was even better than theirs! I made it twice for get togethers and it was a hit each time. It sets best when Refrigerated for at least 2 days before taking it out of the spring foam pan. You have to try it!!!
