Ingredients

  • Crust:

  • 2

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2

    cup firmly packed brown sugar

  • 1

    cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

  • Cheesecake Filling:

  • 3

    (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened

  • 3/4

    cup sugar, plus 2 tablespoons, divided

  • 3

    large eggs

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoons vanilla extract

  • Apples:

  • 3

    Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and finely chopped

  • 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 (1 stick) butter, softened

  • 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.

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, combine flour and brown sugar. Cut in butter with a pastry blender (or 2 forks) until mixture is crumbly. Press evenly into a 9x13 baking pan lined with heavy-duty aluminum foil. 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, remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Spoon evenly over cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle evenly with Streusel topping. Bake 40-45 minutes, or until filling is set. Drizzle with caramel topping and let cool. Serve cold and enjoy!
