Fruit Filled Cheesecake
Rich and creamy cheesecake with a fruit filling baked right in. This cake always
gets raves from all who try it. The oats and fruit in the crust make this
cheesecake stand out from all the others.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 3/4 cups apple pie filling
16 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups sour cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a medium bowl, combine flour, oats, baking powder, brown sugar and butter.
Press all but 3/4 cup of the crumb mixture into the bottom of
a 10-inch round baking pan.
Spread the fruit pie filling over the top and sprinkle with
the remaining crumbs.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 15 minutes. Remove
from oven and let cool for 10 minutes.
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar together. Add the vanilla and
sour cream and beat until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time.
Pour batter into the prepared crust. Place the pan in a large
roasting pan and place in the oven.
Fill the roasting pan with water to the 1 inch mark. Bake at
350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 55 minutes. Remove cake from oven, cool to
room temperature and refrigerate overnight.
