Mix butter and graham crumbs; press onto bottom and up side of 9-inch pie plate.
Beat cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each just until blended; pour into crust. Top with apples and nuts. Mix cinnamon and 3 Tbsp. sugar; sprinkle over cheesecake.
Bake 40 min. or until center is almost set. Cool completely. Refrigerate 3 hours.
To avoid overbaking a cheesecake, check for doneness at the minimum baking time by gently shaking the pan. If the cheesecake is done, the edge should be slightly puffed and it will be set except for a small area in the center that will be soft and jiggly. Do not insert a knife into the center as this may cause the cheesecake to crack during cooling.
