Let's Celebrate Apple Pie Day! Here is a recipe I have done and everytime and it's a taste bud pleaser! So yummy! Instead of making caramel sauce, I buy it and drizzle it on top when I cut them into bars. Soooo good!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.In a medium bowl, combine flour, cinnamon and brown sugar. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Press evenly into a 13 by 9 by 2-inch baking pan lined with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Bake 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with 1/2 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, remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Spoon evenly over cream cheese mixture.
Sprinkle evenly with Streusel topping. Bake 30-45 minutes, or until filling is set.
When cooled cut into bars and drizzle with caramel topping.
