    1. The apples would be sweeter than the granny smith, so you might cut out some of the added sugar.

  8. I'll try it with as little sugar as possible. Fortunately I like things much less sweet, since I'm diabetic. I'll probably use a variety of tart cooking apples.

  9. Can this be made with the no-egg cheesecake mix? I have an egg allergy.

  10. I would try apple sauce instead of the chunks of apples. I like my apples really soft

  14. Mine is in the oven. I used 5 med sized apples. My concern was all the butter. AM taking it to church today, and I will get lots of comments. I thought the crust and stressed topping would have crumbled better with less butter.

    1. My crust and topping did not crumble and I'm thinking I should have used butter instead of margarine as margarine has vegetable oil in it and may have made it creamer.

  17. Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars

    Ingredients
    Crust:
    •2 cups all­purpose flour
    •½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
    •1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
    Cheesecake Filling:
    •3 (8­ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
    •¾ cup sugar, plus 2 tablespoons, divided
    •3 large eggs
    •1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
    Apples:
    •3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and finely chopped
    •½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    •¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
    •Streusel Topping:
    •1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    •1 cup all­purpose flour
    •½ cup quick cooking oats
    •½ cup (1 stick) butter, softened
    Drizzle:
    •½ cup caramel topping for drizzling after baked

    Instructions
    1 _ Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    2 _ 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.
    3 _ In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with ¾ 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.
    4 _ In a small bowl, stir together chopped apples, remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Spoon evenly over cream cheese mixture.
    5 _ For the streusel topping: 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.

    6 _ Sprinkle Streusel topping over apples. Bake 40-45 minutes, or until filling is set. Drizzle with caramel topping and let cool. Serve cold and enjoy! Make 16 servings.

    1. I just took this out of the oven! I used 2 cans of Apple pie filling and mixed in a bit of the spices. I won't know until it cools, how it tastes, but everything looks and smells amazing!! :)

    2. YES! And so easy!I added the Caramel sauce at serving time to the individual pieces. It was hard to let it cool completely, but worth it! :D lol

  22. I made these last year at Christmas time and they were delicious. I cut them and served them as squares so didn't put any caramel sauce on top thinking this would be too messy, and really they were quite rich enough. If I were to serve on a plate as a single dessert I would add the caramel sauce and probably a dollop of ice cream!

    1. Hi Mw, I didn't use the tin foil. A glass baking dish and there is enough butter in the base, that it won't stick.

  28. These were absolutely awesome. Only one thing they wanted to stick to the aluminum foil.
