With September here, it’s game on with the fall baking and delicious treat making. Cinnamon and pumpkin and apple, oh my! I’m pretty sure that there is no baking season that smells better than fall does. It’s all SO good. I’ve been on a bit of a cheesecake kick lately, so I decided it was time to try some apple pie cheesecake bars. Oh. My. Word. These are all kinds of amazing.
I also snuck some caramel sauce in there. You know, for good measure. These bars are like having a few different desserts at once. You have the crust which is almost like a pie crust. Then you have your cheesecake layer, which is, well, really good cheesecake. Next up your cinnamon apples. Deliciously pie like. And then the crumb topping. Oh the CRUMB TOPPING PEOPLE.
You basically need to make these and then immediately feed them to people, unless you have some fancy pants willpower of steel. It’s a slippery slope between just having a bite and just having a pan. Not that I know or anything like that, I’m just thinking that’s how it could go down.
And another great thing about these bars? I feel pretty justified telling my husband that I made him both apple pie AND cheesecake, thus it’s totally fair to expect him to do the dishes. Have I convinced you yet to make these? SO DARN GOOD.
