Mix the cream cheese and sugar together. Fold the cream cheese mixture into the whipped cream and refrigerate until ready to use.
Slice your apples in half and carefully scoop out the insides, leaving an edge of the pulp before the skin. Rub lemon juice on the pulp of your apple to keep it white. Remove seeds from the scooped out apple and chop up the rest.
Cook the chopped apple in a small stock pot over medium high heat with a little water. Once the apples start to soften, stir in your cinnamon and cook until you reach the consistency of apple pie filling.
Fill your apple "cups" with the cheesecake filling so that it is level.
Top with small spoonful of cooked apple, a sprinkle of chopped pecans and a drizzle of caramel sauce.
