Apple Streusel Cheesecake Bars



   I got this recipe from one of my favorite blogs:  Pearls, Handcuffs and Happy hour

Apple Streusel Cheesecake Bars

1 pouch Oatmeal Cookie Mix (I used Betty Crocker)
1/2 cup butter
2 {8 oz.} pkgs. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
1 {21 oz.} can apple pie filling {I used Kroger brand :)}
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Mix together cookie mix & butter until coarse and crumbly.  Don’t use an electric mixer…you’ll need to do this part by hand :)
Reserve 1 1/2 cups of the cookie crumb mixture and set aside.  Press the remaining crumb mix into the bottom of a 13x9 baking dish to form a crust.  Bake for 5 minutes on 350 and remove from oven.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, sugar, flour, vanilla, and egg…you can use your electric mixer for this part :)  Spread mixture evenly over the partially baked crust.
Now mix together apple pie filling and cinnamon and spread evenly over the cream cheese mixture.
Sprinkle the reserved 1 1/2 cups of cookie crumble mix on top of the apple cinnamon mix and bake for 35 to 40 minutes at 350.  Remove from oven and let it cool for 30 minutes.  Now transfer to the fridge to chill for about 2 hours.  This will give the dish time to firm up.  Remove from fridge and cut into little bars…
