These delectable bars have everything that's wonderful about the fall and holiday season - they're sure to impress at any of your family gatherings and potlucks.
The bars start with a crust made from crushed Nilla wafers and graham crackers. There's plenty of them, too, so the crust is nice and thick and helps the bars stay together when you cut them apart.
Next, the deliciously smooth cheesecake batter is piled on top.
Then that's spread into an even layer. I don't know about you, but I love stealing tastes of raw cheesecake batter, uncooked eggs be darned. I live dangerously in the kitchen.
Next, tart Granny Smith apples are tossed with cinnamon and nutmeg and packed onto the cream cheese layer.
If that's not enough, a sweet streusel topping finishes things off before this guy gets popped into the oven.
Once the bars have cooled and chilled in the fridge for a few hours, they can be cut into squares.
You could certainly stop here, they are delicious just as they are.
But drizzle on some warm salty caramel and these become something else altogether. Something irresistibly amazing.Print
