  • 3 8-oz. blocks cream cheese, softened
  • ¾ 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. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 9-x-13” baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. 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.
  3. Make filling: In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and ¾ 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.
  4. In a small bowl, toss together apples, 2 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
  5. 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.
  6. Scatter apples on top of the cheesecake mixture, then top with oat mixture.
  7. Bake until the cheesecake is only slightly jiggly in the center, about 55 minutes. Let cool completely, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  8. Before serving, drizzle with caramel sauce and slice into squares.
