Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars

Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars

I know we are over Thanksgiving and all but there are two desserts I had this past week that I am obsessed with. I have to share. Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars. These are even better than the name sounds. It's basically the best of all worlds. Apple pie meets cheesecake meets brown sugar topping. In a bar. With caramel drizzled over all of it. Ridiculous. 

This recipe is from Cookies and Cups and I thought I would give it a try for my contribution to Thanksgiving. I wanted something a little bit different than the normal pumpkin pie, apple pie and french silk pie. (anyone else's family have french silk pie from Village Inn as a tradition? That is one tasty tradition). Anywho, I wanted to try something new and these turned out incredible.  I brought these to my side and to Dave's side and numerous people from each side told me these were amazing. Success!

I originally chose this recipe because I had leftover apples from Leah Kate's first birthday party from an attempted caramel apple pop bite recipe that failed. So the Costco 12 pack of apples needed to be put to good use. Also, I went to make caramel sauce and realized I had no condensed milk. Fail. So these started out as just apple cheesecake bars. But my mom came to my rescue (like usual) and had leftover homemade caramel that I was able to use for the drizzle over the top of these bars. And then back to the original plan of Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars. (caramel sauce recipe here)

You have to try these, they are amazing! Not difficult and perfect for the week after Thanksgiving lingering fall dessert cravings.
