Caramel Apple Chessecake Bars

INGREDIENTS


Crust:


2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 cup butter, softened


Cheesecake Filling:


3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened

3/4 cup sugar

3 large eggs

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Apples:


3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and finely chopped, (about 3 cups)

2 tablespoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


Streusel Topping:


1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup quick cooking oats

1/2 cup butter, softened


Drizzle:


1/2 cup caramel topping for drizzling after baked


INSTRUCTIONS


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, combine flour and brown sugar. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or food processor (or 2 forks) until mixture is crumbly. Press evenly into a 9x13 baking pan that is greased or lined with heavy-duty aluminum foil or parchment. Bake 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with 3/4 cup sugar in an electric mixer at medium speed until smooth. Then add eggs, 1 at a time, and vanilla. Stir to combine. Pour over warm crust.

In a small bowl, stir together chopped apples, 2 tablespoons sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Spoon evenly over cream cheese mixture.

For the streusel topping: In a small bowl, combine all ingredients. I like to really combine it by using my clean hands to thoroughly combine the butter into the mixture. You can't use a food processor because it will grind up the oats.

Sprinkle Streusel topping over apples. Bake 40-45 minutes, or until filling is set. Drizzle with caramel topping and let cool. Serve cold and enjoy!
