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.

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

  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.
