Ingredients:

Crust
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 tbsp light brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

Filling
12 oz cream cheese, soften
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 tbsp sour cream

Topping
1 cup apple, chopped
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup all purpose flour
3 tbsp butter, melted

Whipped cream
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tbsp light brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease a mini cheesecake pan.

In a food processor, process graham crackers until only fine crumbs remain. Add sugar, cinnamon, and melted butter. Mix until combined. Add one scoop of graham cracker mixture to each cheesecake pan cavity. Press down to create a flat and even layer. Bake for 5 minutes.

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with brown sugar. Mix in remaining ingredients until just combined and no longer lumpy. Add one heaping scoop to each cavity. Set aside.

Prepare topping. Chop apples into 1/4 inch pieces. Toss remaining ingredients in a medium bowl. To each uncooked cheesecake, add 1 tbsp apple mixture, gently pressing into the top of batter to create an even layer. Bake for 15-20 minutes. When cheesecakes are completely cooled, carefully remove from pan.

Prepare whipped cream. Add heavy cream, sugar, vanilla into 1 pint whipper. Screw on 1 cream charger and shake vigorously. Dispense onto cheesecake prior to serving.
