Apple Cheesecake Bars


Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a baking pan with parchment paper and set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour and brown sugar. Add the butter and use a pastry blender (or two forks) to cut butter into mixture until crumbly

Make sure the mixture is nice and crumbly and well mixed before placing in baking pan.

Press mixture evenly into prepared pan. Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until light golden in color.

In a large bowl, beat together cream cheese and 1/3 cup sugar using an electric mixer at medium speed until creamy and smooth, about 1 minute. Then add egg and vanilla.

Beat to combine. Next, gently spread the cream cheese mixture over the cooked crust.

In a small bowl, stir together chopped apples, one tablespoon sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Distribute over the cream cheese mixture.

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon and butter. Either stir ingredients together using a wooden spoon or, better yet, use your clean hands.

Sprinkle streusel topping evenly over the apple layer. Bake 35-40 minutes, or until streusel is light brown and filling is set.

Let bars cool in the pan to room temperature, then transfer to refrigerator to chill for at least 3 hours. Serve cold and enjoy!
