  • 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
      • 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
          Caramel Drizzle
          • 1/2 cup King’s Cupboard caramel topping for drizzling after baked


          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 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.
          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. Warm your choice of King's Cupboard caramel sauce, drizzle over top and let cool. Serve cold and enjoy!
