  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 c. firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 c. unsalted butter, softened

  • 3 8-oz. blocks cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 c. sugar, plus 2 tablespoons, divided
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 3 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

  • 3/4 c. firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 c. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 c. old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 c. butter, softened
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • Caramel, for serving

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 9-x-13” baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Make crust: In a large bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. Add butter and use your hands, or a pastry cutter, to cut the butter into the flour mixture until it’s crumbly and moist. Press into prepared pan and set aside.
  • Make filling: In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and 3/4 cup sugar until light and fluff. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well between each addition. Mix in vanilla and salt. Pour over the crust.
  • In a small bowl, toss together apples, 2 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • Make streusel topping: In a medium bowl, whisk together brown sugar, sugar, flour and oats, then cut in butter with a fork or pastry cutter.
  • Scatter apples on top of the cheesecake mixture, then top with oat mixture.
  • Bake until the cheesecake is only slightly jiggly in the center, about 55 minutes. Let cool completely, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • Before serving, drizzle with caramel sauce and slice into squares.
