Preheat oven to 300F. Combine cracker crumbs and sugar. Drizzle butter into the mixture. Press Graham cracker mixture into the bottom and sides of a 9 inch spring form pan. Place in refrigerator. Peel and core apples, slice and place in pan with butter, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and saute until apples are tender. Cool in refrigerator.
In a mixing bowl, combine softened cream cheese and cream. Blend well to remove all lumps, then add one egg at a time, whipping completely before adding the next one. Add sugar a little at a time, then add butter and vanilla. Remove crust and apple from refrigerator. Place apples in-pan, then add cheesecake mix. Place in water bath and bake one hour or until firm to touch. Let cool for 4 hours, slice and serve.
