Apple Cheesecake Streusel Bars

I made this really yummilicious bars last year , it’s like an apple crumble and cheesecake rolled into one.  The recipe is from Paula Deen, it’s originally with caramel topping but I didn’t add  it ( actually, I overlooked the caramel topping..totally missed it,  hehee);  if you want you can use any ready-made caramel topping or dulce de leche.  Give it a try if you haven’t yet, it’s really, really good  just don’t eat more than 2 servings in one sitting if you can help it ☺
