Caramel Apple Cheesecake bars


I'm not a huge cheesecake lover because the cream cheese can be a little overwhelming but these are wonderful because it has just the right amount. A brown sugar shortbread crust, smooth cheesecake layer, lightly tart apples, with a crunchy cinnamon streusel all drizzled with caramel. Not a favorite for people that are expecting a cheesecake but I absolutely love these! Easy recipe to prepare for a crowd.















2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup butter, softened

Cheesecake filling:
8 oz cream cheese(softened)
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

3 apples (Granny Smith or Macintosh, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2" or less cubes)
2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice

Streusel Topping:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup quick oats
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup butter

Drizzle 1/2 cup caramel topping, or melt caramel candy.


  1. Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃).
  2. Using a mixer, combine flour, brown sugar, and butter until it comes together. Press evenly into a 13x9 baking pan lightly greased with cooking spray. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
  3. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with ½ cup sugar using an electric mixer at medium speed until smooth. Then add eggs, one at a time, and then add vanilla. Stir to combine. Pour over warm crust.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together cubed apples, 2 tablespoon sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and lemon juice. Spoon apple mixture (juices and all) evenly over cream cheese mixture.
  5. For the streusel topping: Combine all ingredients in a small bowl with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle over the top of the apples. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until filling is set.
  6. Let it cool, then drizzle caramel topping and let cool. Serve cold and enjoy.
