Equipment

  • 9x13 inch pan

Ingredients

Salted Caramel Topping

Instructions

Crust

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Mix flour, brown sugar, and butter slices. Mix with a hand mixer or with your hands until combined and crumbly.
  • Press evenly into a 9x13 pan.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.

Cheesecake Filling

  • Mix cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar until smooth.
  • Add eggs and vanilla and mix until combined.
  • Pour over crust.

Apple Topping

  • In a large bowl, combine apples, cinnamon and 2 TBSP of sugar. Stir until the apples are coated.
  • Spoon apple topping on top of the cheesecake layer.
  • Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Salted Caramel Topping

  • Heat sugar in a medium saucepan on medium heat. Stir constantly with wooden spoon and make sure to scrape the sides and bottom.
  • Sugar will form clumps and eventually melt into a thick brown liquid. Continue to stir constantly.
  • Once sugar is melted, add in the butter. The caramel will bubble up when you add in the butter, so be careful when adding it.
  • Stir until butter is completely melted and combined with caramel.
  • Slowly add the heavy cream. The mixture will bubble up when you add the cream as well.
  • Boil for 1 minute.
  • Remove from heat and add in sea salt.
  • Drizzle over bars immediately before serving.
