Bavarian Apple Oatmeal Streusel Cheesecake

Do you like starting your day with something amazingly delicious? Then you need this Bavarian apple oatmeal streusel cheesecake recipe in your life because this dessert is the best of cheesecake and apple pie combined.

We all know apple pie is an autumn must-have dessert and we also know how addicted I am to cheesecakes. By the end of this post, you’ll learn how to combine these two recipes, because you need to be addicted to cheesecakes too so we can be best friends.

After all, why would you have it for dessert when you can treat it like an entire meal?

My husband’s favorite pie is apple pie but he doesn’t care much for cheesecakes. One bite of this goodness with oatmeal cookies for a crust and he was sold. In fact, we ate the entire cake in one day. There was nothing left to start our next morning with and it kind of set the (sad) tone for the rest of the day.

With this in mind, you might need to make two batches so you have some for the next morning. There’s nothing better to go with your first hot cup of joe than this Bavarian apple pie cheesecake. Trust me on this.

Don’t forget to let me know how much you loved it, so we can hang out 😉

Amazing Bavarian apple #pie #oatmeal #cheesecake with oatmeal cookies for the crust, creamy filling, and a crunchy top to start your day off right! #appleweek Click To Tweet

A drizzle of caramel makes this Bavarian cheesecake with apples and oatmeal even more delicous.

Ingredients:
Serves 2 … just kidding – 8

Crust

  • 2/3 cup quick cooking Flahavan’s oats
  • 2/3 cup (about 3 oz.) hard oatmeal cookies (I used Lil’ Dutch Maid brand)
  • 1 stick butter (8 tablespoons), melted

Filling

  • 16 oz. cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch (cornflower to my British friends)
  • 2 teaspoons Rodelle pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Rainier Honeycrisp apples, peeled and sliced thinly

Topping

  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter

 

~ Free Tip ~

Drizzle apple slices with lemon juice to prevent from browning. If you can find them at your stores, use Brandt Hobbits Oatmeal Cookies for the crust.

 

Directions:

Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 175 ° C.
  2. Grease an 8-inch springform pan on the base and sides and then line the base with parchment paper (optional).
  3. In a food processor, pulse the oatmeal cookies until finely ground. Combine with oatmeal flakes and melted butter.
  4. Firmly press the crumb mixture into bottom of prepared pan.
  5. Bake in a hot oven for 12-15 minutes.  Allow it to cool.

Filling

  1. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add cornstarch, vanilla, cinnamon, and sugars and mix until well combined.
  2. Pour the cream cheese mixture evenly over the cooled crust.
  3. Top with apple slices (any way you want).

Topping

  1. In a small bowl, combine flour, sugar, and cinnamon. Using a pastry blender or fork, cut in the butter until fine crumbs form. Sprinkle evenly over the apples.
  2. Place the springform pan on a baking sheet (prevents any leaks to the bottom of your oven). Bake in a 350 F preheated oven, about 40-50 minutes.
  3. Allow it to cool, then refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.
  4. Loosen the sides of the cheesecake with a knife, and then carefully remove the sides of the pan.

ESSENTIALS

for Bavarian Apple Oatmeal Streusel Cheesecake

  • The original German Brandt Hobbits Oatmeal Cookies is quite pricey and our local stores don’t carry it. Since we simplify recipes here at All that’s Jas to help you experience all kinds of foods, we used what we could find locally, for a fraction of the cost. $0.99 for a large package of Lil’ Dutch Oatmeal Cookies. Can’t beat that.
  • A stand mixer is a hands-free time-saver. You can enjoy a glass of wine while it does its job. 😉
  • Stocking my kitchen with different springform pan sizes literally saved me from numerous cake disasters. I still make a wrong call on occasion and end up having an extra thin cake, but it could be much worse.
  • Do you like digging your fingers into butter? Neither do I. But I do like gadgets (like a lot!) and used this pastry blender to crumble butter for streusel topping.
  • You know how you get more excited about a simple gift that is packaged nicely than the expensive one that comes shipped in a card box (well…initially at least, ha!). Serve this cake on a nice cake stand for that wow factor, although its taste alone will get you enough rave reviews. A dinner plate is fine too.
