12 oz. cream cheese

1 ½ teaspoons vanilla

2 Tablespoons flour

1 large egg

For Serving:

To make the apple pie filling:
Peel the apples and diced in about ½ inches cubes. In a large saucepan melt 1 Tablespoon butter, add chopped apples, brown sugar, fresh lemon juice, corn starch, water, and spices.

Stir everything well, cover with a lid and cook over medium heat until the apples are slightly softened, and the sauce is thickened. It will take about 10-15 minutes, just don’t forget to stir occasionally, or the sauce will stick at the bottom. Set aside and cool before using.

Graham Cracker Crust:
Preheat the oven to 350 F.

In a bowl stir together graham cracker crumbs, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Add melted butter and stir until everything is evenly moistened. Press the mixture in the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie dish. Bake 8 minutes, then set aside to cool.

Crisp Topping:
Stir together flour, oats, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Add melted butter and whisk with a fork to make the crumbs, set aside.

Cheesecake Filling:
Beat softened cream cheese with sugar, vanilla, and flour. Add slightly beaten egg and mix just to combine. Spread the mixture in prebaked crust.

Next spread the apples over the cheesecake layer.

Sprinkle with the crumb topping and bake 35-40 minutes. If it starts browning too much tent the top with aluminum foil.

Cool completely before serving.

Serve with a drizzle of salted caramel or vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Enjoy !!
