Caramel Apple Cheesecake

I had some good little helpers in the kitchen last week. We made a yummy dessert that was easy and delicious! The kids were so proud of their final product.

Caramel Apple Cheesecake

2 cups flour
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened

3 (8oz) cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar, plus 2 tbsp divided
3 large eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla

3 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg

1 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup butter, softened

caramel topping

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a med bowl, combine flour and brown sugar. Cut in butter with a pastry cutter until mixture is crumbly. Press evenly into 9x13 baking pan, lined with foil. Bake 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
In a bowl, beat cream cheese with 3/4 cup sugar at med speed until smooth. Then add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition, and vanilla. Pour over warm crust.
In a small bowl, stir sliced apples, cinnamon, 2 tbsp sugar, and nutmeg. Spoon evenly over cream cheese mixture.
In a small bowl, combine topping ingredients until crumbly and sprinkle evenly over apples. Bake 40-45 minutes, or until filling is set. Drizzle with caramel topping while warm or once cooled. Let cheesecake cool completely. Serve cold and enjoy!
