"My family cannot get enough of this cheesecake and they ask for it all year long. You can make it a few days in advance and it only gets better!"

1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 tablespoons melted butter or margarine
16 ounces softened cream cheese

2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups peeled and sliced tart apples
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/3 cup chopped toasted pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together the crust ingredients in a small bowl. Press into the bottom and sides of a greased 9 inch springform pan. Bake for 10 minutes. While baking the crust, whip together the cheesecake ingredients until light and fluffy. Pour the filling into the hot crust. Bake for 10 minutes. While the cheesecake is baking, toss together the topping ingredients. Place on top of the cheesecake and bake for 50-60 minutes. Cool in the pan on a wire rack. Refrigerate overnight before serving.
