Apple Streusel Cheesecake Bars

1  Pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker oatmeal cookie mix
1/2  Cup firm butter
2  Packages (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1/2  Cup sugar
2  Tbsp. all-purpose flour
1  tsp. vanilla
1  Egg
1  Can (21 oz) apple pie filling
1/2  tsp. ground cinnamon
Optional – I use finely diced Walnuts

Directions:

Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom and sides of 13×9-inch pan with cooking spray.

Place cookie mix in a large bowl. With a pastry blender or fork, cut in butter until mixture is crumbly and coarse. Reserve 1 ½ cups crumb mixture; press remaining crumbs in bottom of pan. Bake 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, flour, vanilla and egg with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.

Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over partially baked crust. In medium bowl, mix pie filling and cinnamon. Spoon evenly over cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle reserved crumbs over top.

Bake 35 to 40 minutes longer or until light golden brown. Cool about 30 minutes.

Refrigerate to chill, about 2 hours.

Store covered in refrigerator.

Passed through my family, good recipe!

About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
