Instant pot caramel apple cheesecake recipe. A smooth cheesecake with a hint of apple topped with caramelized apples, to create the ultimate fall dessert.
Can you use other apples in place of Granny Smiths?
Yes you can. You can use any apple that is tart and crisp. This means that you should be able to use apples like Golden Delicious, Cortlands, Winesaps, Northern Spy, Idareds, etc.
No you cannot. Granny Smith apples are sour because of the high tannin content. If you try using other types of apples then the result would be something that is either too sweet or too crunchy – neither one being what you want in a pie crust.
What ingredients are used in this recipe?
This is a traditional cookie recipe that includes butter, sugar and flour. It also includes the salt and baking soda which is what makes this cookie so delicious.
