Caramel Apple Mini Cheesecakes with Streusel Topping


Why is fall my favorite season? The food of course! I get so excited this time of year for the caramel apples, the pumpkin pie and just the delicious scent in my house from all the fall baking. It’s that time of year that you know you’ll need to get the big container of cinnamon because it’s going in everything.

Caramel Apple Mini Cheesecakes with Streusel Topping | Cooking Classy

Since caramel apples are one of the first things I crave this time of year I decided to combine them with another one of my favorite desserts, cheesecake! And this time we are going mini. They are easier to serve, they are better for portion control and really they’re just so much cuter.

Yes, the caramel sauce is definitely a must (and I’d say a generous amount) but if your not into the whole salted thang then just use the regular. And be sure to check out the link in the recipe for the salted caramel sauce recipe (which again, you can make unsalted) because it shows photos of all the stages of cooking caramel sauce so you’ll know what to watch for so it isn’t under-cooked/doesn’t burn.

Caramel Apple Mini Cheesecakes with Streusel Topping

5 from 4 votes

Yield: 18 mini cheesecakes

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes



  • 10 graham crackers sheets , finely crushed (1 1/3 cups)
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter , melted


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter , cold and diced into 1/2-inch cubes


  • 2 (8 oz) pkgs cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 lb granny smith apples , peeled, cored and finely chopped*
  • 2 tsp lemon juice


  • Salted caramel sauce , homemade (recipe and tutorial here) or store bought


  1. For the crust:
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a mixing bowl, whisk together graham cracker crumbs, sugar and cinnamon. Pour in butter and using a fork, stir until evenly moistened. Divide mixture among 18 paper lined muffin cups, adding a rounded tablespoon to each cup. Press into an even layer. Bake in preheated oven 5 minutes, then remove from oven and allow to cool.
  3. For the streusel:
  4. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, quick oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Add cold butter and using fingertips, rub butter into dry mixture until it comes together it small crumbles and pieces of butter are no longer visible. Transfer to refrigerator while preparing apples and filling.
  5. For the filling:
  6. In a bowl, toss chopped apples with lemon juice, set aside.
  7. In a mixing bowl, using an electric hand mixer set on medium-low speed, cream together cream cheese with sugar just until smooth. Mix in eggs one at a time, then blend in sour cream and vanilla.
  8. To assemble cheesecakes:
  9. Divide cheesecake batter evenly among 18 muffin cups pouring filing over crust (I used a 1/4 cup and filled it about 3/4 full). Divide apples evenly over cheesecake layer, then finish by sprinkling a heaping tablespoon of the streusel over tops. Bake in preheated oven 23 - 25 minutes. Cool at room temperature 30 minutes, then transfer to fridge and chill 3 hours. Serve with caramel sauce.
  10. *This is about 3 small granny smith apples. I recommend chopping very small so they can cook all the way through, almost mincing them (even smaller than that pictured because mine weren't quite tender all the way through).

  • Cheryl: Tried this with the salted caramel sauce. Both were excellent but I think they could stand alone without the sauce if you just ran out of time to make the sauce. The qty of all ingredients was perfect, didn’t run short or over on anything. Fairly simple to make and DH and BFF’s loved them!. You’ll start out thinking you’ll need two because they are small, but they are rich and satisfying. I’m going to freeze the extra and I’ll bet they’ll be just as good thawed. Thank you for sharing.

    • Jaclyn: I probably wouldn’t recommend that just because they may alter the consistency of the cheesecake – maybe if you drained them somehow though, or you could just add the apple pie filling after baking over the top of the crumb layer. October 8, 2014 at 6:01pm Reply

  • Sug: Do you serve with chilled, room temperature or warm carmal? Is there any specific technique to applying the carmal? November 22, 2014 at 3:40am Reply

    • Jaclyn: I prefer room temperature with these or even cold since the cheesecakes are chilled but it’s just personal preference. And I didn’t use any special technique I just poured into a ziploc bag and sniped a corner off then drizzled but a spoon would work fine too. November 22, 2014 at 3:54pm Reply

  • Brianna: Hello I just have a few questions I am thinking of making these for thanks giving but I have never made cheesecake before my oven is a little old and temperamental how do I check them to see if they are done? Can the caramel sauce go on then when they go in the fridge? Do you think I could make them Wednesday day and they still be good Thursday night or is it best to make them Thursday morning? November 25, 2014 at 3:38pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: They should seem set when you wiggle the pan and they should puff up a bit. And I think you’d be just fine to make them today to serve tomorrow. Happy Thanksgiving! November 26, 2014 at 10:39am Reply

  • Elaine: Hi, is it okay if it substitute the quick oats with old fashioned oats? Or will the streusel turn out differently? November 26, 2014 at 6:03pm Reply

  • Christina Dukes: Hi – I might have missed this in the comments, so I’m sorry if I’m asking again! I actually made these last Thanksgiving – BUT – I had cut my finger open on Thanksgiving Eve (had 11 stitches, cut an artery, and chipped a bone!) and I was taking oxycodone!! So I have a fuzzy memory!!

    Actually I was starting to make THESE and didn’t have a hand mixer, used my immersion blender – so I’m sure you can imagine what stupid mistake I made with cream cheese.

    ** My question is – should I let the caramel sauce cool before adding to the top? I’m thinking I might make the cheesecakes tonight, but I can do the caramel sauce as well and put in fridge – or should I do it tomorrow? Thank you so much – love your recipes! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! November 25, 2015 at 12:53pm Reply

  • Tyler g: I just made these as a gift last night and they are amazing! Very well balanced treat and fantastic cheesecake. My apples also did not cook all the way even though I minced them, but my fiance and I decided we liked the apples a little crunchy since the cheesecake requires refrigeration anyhow. One of the best things I have ever made! November 26, 2015 at 9:17am Reply

  • Janet: I am making these tonight. I made them in mini cup cake tins. while I was waiting for the crusts to cool and mixing together the batter I sauteed the apples and added some cinnamon and brown sugar to them in the pan. I think this should help them be tender. This way they don’t need to cook longer than the mini mini cheese cakes. November 27, 2015 at 7:34pm Reply

We are all trying to watch our weight, but since it’s a special occasion, I wanted a recipe I could half or even quarter to have a single portion per person. This looks like it would be perfect. Making it this afternoon. I’ll post my results . October 2, 2016 at 11:12am Reply

  • Pat: I want to make these delightful caramel-apple-cheesecakes in a mini mini pan. Would it make double the amount since it’s 18 for the muffin pans? Also would the oven time change? October 18, 2016 at 5:26pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Probably double or more. And yes the bake time would need to be reduce probably by about half. November 22, 2016 at 9:48pm Reply

  • Katie: Y’all also check out this video with the instructions. These are super yummy! especially with apples we picked, we used a mixture of different kinds. super easy to make and easy to eat on the go. October 26, 2016 at 2:26pm Reply

  • Lujain: Hi! I’ve used this recipe twice and I LOVE it! I just have one question. Do you think I can make it in a 9×13 tray (or any other size?) and do all the same things just not in cupcake form? Do you think it’ll still come out as good? Thanks :) November 21, 2016 at 9:58am Reply

  • Kimberly: Thanks for this great recipe! Did you leave the skin on the apples when you minced them? November 23, 2016 at 10:36am Reply

  • crystina condon: for the caramel sauce………can i leave the caramel drizzle on the cheesecakes and then refridgerate them or they can only be drizzled before you eat them?

  • Ashley: I want to make these next week, where do I find your homemade recipe for the caramel topping? November 17, 2017 at 10:52am Reply

  • ip: can you use apple pie filling instead of cutting up apples November 20, 2017 at 12:46pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I would definitely stick with fresh here for best texture and flavor. November 21, 2017 at 11:26pm Reply

  • Lindsy: 👍👍👍 November 21, 2017 at 8:40pm Reply

  • chris: Looking forward to making these tonight. I’m confused by the direction to “add a rounded tablespoon to each cup” after dividing the graham cracker crumb mixture. What does that mean to do? Divide the mixture evenly and leave enough for a tablespoon to be added to each? What is different from just dividing equally? November 22, 2017 at 1:29pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Yes you do just divide it up equally – I tried to list about how much would go in each cup which would be a heaping tablespoon added to each. Hope you love these! November 23, 2017 at 12:40am Reply

  • Brenda: OMG, this recipe is so simple and so good. I was worried that the time may be off but no they were just perfect. Don’t over bake. My husband chopped the apples really small and they were baked perfectly. I left off the caramel they are sweet enough. November 30, 2017 at 4:14pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: So glad you liked them Brenda! December 4, 2017 at 12:10pm Reply

  • Sam: I made these for a work holiday party and they were a huge hit! I did end up making them in a mini cupcake tray so I had enough for 48!
    I adjusted the cooking times to 3.5 min for the crust and 11 min for the cheesecake part and it worked perfectly.

    I also used a food processor to chop the apples (peeling, cutting into 4 big chunks, pulsing on the “chop” setting). It was super fast, less than a minute in the food processor. This way, my apple pieces were small enough to put on my tiny creation. Chopping by hand would have taken me forever! December 10, 2017 at 6:32am Reply

    • Jaclyn: Thanks for your feedback Sam! Glad they were enjoyed! December 11, 2017 at 11:18am Reply

  • Katrina Tickle: I am going to make this recipe . I need a dozen for work and was hoping for remainder for Dinner party. If I make Weds night for work on Thursday will remainder stay fresh for Friday ? December 13, 2017 at 2:34pm Reply
