1. For crust, combine chopped walnuts and flour. Stir in melted butter. Press onto the bottom and 2 inches up the sides of an ungreased 8- or 9-inch springform pan. Set pan aside.
2. For filling, in large mixing bowl beat cream cheese with an electric mixer on low speed until fluffy. Gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk. Add juice concentrate and eggs; beat on low speed just until combined. Stir in finely chopped apple.
3. Pour filling into crust-lined pan. Place in a shallow baking pan in oven. Bake in a 375 degree F oven 45 to 50 minutes for the 8-inch pan, 35 to 40 minutes for 9-inch pan, or until center appears nearly set when gently shaken.
4. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Loosen crust from sides of pan and cool for 30 minutes more. Remove sides of pan; cool 1 hour.
5. In a medium skillet poach apple slices in a small amount of boiling water for 1 minute or until softened; drain. Cover; chill cheesecake and apples separately at least 4 hours.
6. To serve, arrange apple slices atop cheesecake. Drizzle with warm caramel topping. If desired, garnish with White Chocolate Leaves and an Apple Rose.
1. Starting at the tip of an unpeeled, extra-thin fresh apple slice, roll up diagonally to form a cone shape for the rose center. Press on additional slices, curving around center to make thin petals. Add enough of these thin petals to make a rose.
1. Melt vanilla-flavored candy coating over low heat, stirring constantly; cool. Stir in light-colored corn syrup. Turn mixture out onto a large sheet of waxed paper. Let stand at room temperature for 3 to 24 hours or until dry to the touch. Gently knead for 10 to 15 strokes or until mixture is smooth and pliable. If mixture is too soft, chill in the refrigerator about 15 minutes or until easy to handle (or knead in enough powdered sugar to stiffen the mixture). Store any unused mixture in a sealed plastic bag at room temperature for 3 to 4 weeks (mixture will stiffen with storage; before using, knead mixture until it is pliable). Flatten mixture slightly; place between 2 sheets of waxed paper dusted with powdered sugar. Roll to 1/8-inch thickness. Using leaf-shaped cutters or a knife, cut into shapes. Use a wooden toothpick to draw veins on leaves. Curve leaves as desired.
