Prepare the Crust: Mix together graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. Press the mixture into the bottom of a springform pan and bake until set.

Make the Cheesecake Filling: Beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, followed by vanilla extract and sour cream. Pour the filling over the baked crust.

Caramelize the Apples: Cook sliced apples with butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon until tender and caramelized. Let them cool slightly.

Top the Cheesecake: Arrange the caramelized apples on top of the cheesecake filling.

Bake the Cheesecake: Bake the cheesecake until set, with slightly jiggly center.

Prepare the Caramel Sauce: Heat sugar in a saucepan until it caramelizes. Add butter and cream, stirring until smooth and thickened. Let the caramel sauce cool to room temperature.

Drizzle with Caramel Sauce: Once the cheesecake is chilled, drizzle the caramel sauce over the top.
