Caramel apple cheesecake jars recipe | Ft Natures Charm

Vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, wheat-free, quick & easy.

These caramel apple cheesecake jars scream Autumn to me!
Fall time call's for apples, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, maple and all of those delicious flavours!.

The caramel I used in this recipe is the Natures charm 'Butter Scotch Sauce'!
This sauce is absolutely delicious, my new favourite!
It's a vegan & gluten-free sauce made with premium coconut milk, making it silky smooth and creamy.
It's the perfect sauce & flavour to compliment the apple pie filling and silky smooth cream cheese! It gives sweetness, without being too sweet.
These caramel apple jars are quick & easy to make and would be perfect at dinner parties, special occasions or as a cosy dessert.

Preparation- 10 minutes

Cooking time- Approximately 15 minutes
Serves- 3
Level- Easy


Ingredients for the apple pie filling
-3 medium-sized apples
-2 tablespoons of dairy-free butter
-1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
-80g of golden caster sugar
-1 tablespoon of cornstarch
-4 tablespoons of water

Ingredients for the cream cheese filling
-400g / 1 can of coconut cream (cream only)
-40g of dairy-free cream cheese
-1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
-2 tablespoons of icing sugar
-Caramel sauce
-8 plain biscuits

To make the apple filling

Step 1- Core and chop the apples into small squares.

Step 2- In a large saucepan, add in the cinnamon and butter. Heat on low until melted.

Step 3- Add in the chopped apples, sugar and cook until the apples soften.
This will take around 8-10 minutes.

Step 4- Add in a dash of cornstarch, the water and stir.

Allow the apples to cook for a few minutes until the sauce has thickened and the apples have softened, but aren't mushy.
Set the filling aside to cool.

To make the cream cheese filling
Step 1- Cream the coconut cream, cream cheese, vanilla extract and icing sugar on high speed until smooth.
I used my Kitchenaid stand mixer with the balloon whisk attachment.

Assemble the apple pie jars.
Step 1- Place the biscuits into a food processor and whizz up until crumb-like. 
If you don't have a food processor, pop the biscuits in a bag and use a rolling pin to bash them until crumb-like.
Divide between 3 mini mason jars and press down to compact at the base of the jars.

Step 2- Spoon 2 tablespoons of apple pie filling on top of the biscuits, follow with 2 tablespoons of cream cheese filling, a drizzle of caramel sauce, then repeat a second time.

Step 3- Top off with some apple pie chunks, a sprinkle of ground cinnamon and caramel sauce.

Store in the fridge before serving.
Best eaten fresh, day of making.
