Apple Streusel Cheesecake Bars

Pin It

I made these devilish little guys for an engagement party I went to the other weekend and they were a huge hit! I took the ones that didn't fit on the tray to my parents' house the next day and they were gobbled up. There were a few leftover that I was going to take home, but before I left my dad even asked me if he could keep a couple at the house so he could have them for breakfast. My dad doesn't even like sweets, but he wanted these. That tells me something.

They are a mix of apple pie, cheesecake and a crumb topping. And I'm obsessed. They're pretty easy to make and they please most crowds. Even people that don't love sweets, like my dad. Plus at the party we went to I saw the host's small son walking around with one licking off the apple topping. Now you definitely can't tell me they're not good. Hope you enjoy!
