1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
3 tbsp. granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 cup (1/2 stick/2 oz./56g) butter or margarine, melted
2 packages (8 oz. each) Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

It was too good. Except, the apples didn't sink to the bottom like the cake in the picture but it was crunchy. My boyfriend loved it.
