The cinnamon in the crust is a perfect compliment to the caramel flavor, so don’t leave it out. It’s a perfect crunchy and buttery base to hold the sweet creamy filling.

Recipe for Dulce de Leche Cheesecake. Creamy cheesecake drizzled with caramel.

I usually make my own dulce de leche by cooking a can of sweetened condensed milk in a saucepan over medium low heat till it caramelizes and turns light brown. But this time around I used a can of premade dulce de leche. The can is a real time saver, but truth be told, I like the homemade version better.

Layers of caramel make this dulce de leche cheesecake extra sweet and creamy.

If you are a caramel lover, this cheesecake is perfect for you.  Not only does it have layers of caramel in the filling, you garnish it with more dulce de leche when you serve it. So yummy!
