Apple Crisp Cheesecake

In my big Minnesotan family, desserts are always the star of every meal. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing - but it's a delicious thing none the less. One day I was sitting in my kitchen trying to come up with a delicious recipe for my family's next party. The genius idea of combing my two favorite desserts, cheesecake and apple crisp, lit up in my head like a light bulb and the recipe was created from there. It's one of my all time favorite desserts and one of Vegan Heartland's most popular recipes and I'm so glad I get to share it with all of you!

Is it possible to use ground flax seeds equal to 2 eggs instead of EnerG egg replacer if you have that on hand? Thanks, this recipe sounds delicious.
