Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars
CARAMEL APPLE CHEESECAKE BARS
Cheesecake Factory Copycat Recipe
Makes 16 bars
2 1/2 cups crushed cinnamon graham crackers (about 1 1/2 sleeves)
1 stick butter, softened
16 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups apple pie filling (with the apples chopped into small pieces)
1/2 cup caramel topping
5 tablespoons butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup walnuts
1/3 cup flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Line an 8x8 baking pan with tin foil. In a small bowl, combine the crushed graham crackers and butter. Press them into the bottom of the baking pan. Bake at 350 for 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
In a stand mixer, mix the cream cheese, eggs, sour cream, sugar and vanilla. Beat until smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes. Spread 1/2 the batter over the cooled graham cracker crust. Drop the apple pie filling by teaspoons over the cheesecake layer. Spread the remaining batter over the apples. Drizzle the caramel topping over the cheesecake. Then take a knife and swirl it gently into the batter.
In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the streusel. Spread the streusel evenly over top the cheesecake. Bake at 350 for about 60 to 70 minutes or until the cheesecake has set and the edges are lightly browned. Cool completely, then store the cheesecake in the fridge.
