That’s quite the title, isn’t it?  I know it’s kind of long but I thought it was imperative that you all understand just how much awesomeness is contained in this one dessert.  It starts out with a graham cracker crust, then a layer of caramel and pecans, lots of caramelized apples, topped with a layer of cheesecake, and finished off with whipped cream swirled with more caramel and pecans.  I had a bag full of apples from the orchard and a half bottle of homemade caramel leftover from the banana caramel cupcakes, so I really had no choice but to make this dessert!

I probably don’t even need to tell you how fantastic it was, since I am sure you can figure that out just from the pictures and description alone.  This was one of those desserts that I ate every night until it was gone, despite several other sweet options in the house.  Not only that, I had mentioned it to a coworker who then requested it for his birthday the following week.  I brought it in and suddenly became quite popular with all the employees in that department.  It’s just that good!

I used homemade caramel both times I made this, but you could certainly use the jarred kind if you prefer.  But I encourage you to try homemade – it’s easier than you might think, and it tastes heavenly!
