3 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 18 whole crackers)
1/4 cup sugar
9 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

2 pounds cream cheese, room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 16 ounce container of sour cream
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 large eggs

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 pounds Fuji or Golden Delicious apples (about 4 medium), peeled, cored, cut into 1/4 inch thick wedges
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup whipping cream

For Crust:
Preheat oven to 350 F. Wrap outside of 10 inch diameter springform pan with 2 3/4 inch high sides with foil. Combine graham cracker crumbs and sugar in medium bowl Add melted butter and stir to blend. Press mixture onto bottom and up sides of prepared pan. Bake crust 10 minutes. Transfer pan to rack and cool completely. Maintain oven temperature.

For Filling:
Using electric mixer, beat cram cheese, sugar and cornstarch in large bowl until smooth. Add sour cream, orange juice and vanilla and beat until blended. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each.
Pour filling into crust. Bake cheesecake until center moves only slightly when pan is shaken, about 1 hour 30 minutes. Transfer to rack and cool. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

For Topping:
Melt butter in large skillet over high heat. Add apples; stir until apples are coated with butter, about 2 minutes. Add sugar; stir until sugar dissolves and liquid comes to a boil, about 3 minutes. Strain apples, reserving liquid. Return reserved liquid to same skillet. Boil until liquid turns deep amber, stirring occasionally, about 6 minutes. Remove from heat. Carefully add cream (mixture will bubble vigorously); whisk to blend. Return to heat and bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Remove from heat. Cool until caramel sauce in lukewarm but can still be poured.
Arrange apple wedges in overlapping concentric circles atop cheesecake. Pour caramel sauce over apples, covering top of cheesecake completely. Cover loosely with foil and refrigerate. Let stand at room temperature 45 minutes before serving. Remove foil from pan. Remove pan sides. Cut cheesecake into wedges.
