Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened

Cheesecake Filling:
3 (8 oz) pkgs 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 finely chopped

Streusel Topping:
1 cup packed brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350. 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 foil. Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with 3/4 cup sugar until smooth. Add eggs, 1 at a time, and vanilla. Mix well. Pour over crust.

In a small bowl, stir together apples, remaining 2 Tbsp sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Spoon evenly over cream cheese mixture.

In a small bowl, combine all ingredients for the streusel topping. Sprinkle over apples. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until filling is set. Drizzle with caramel topping and let cool. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
