Ingredients

For Crust

  • 6 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon ground

For Cheesecake Filling

  • 16 ounces cream cheese at room temperature
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

For Apples

  • 2 large apples peeled, cored and sliced in small pieces
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons sugar

Optional Toppings

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350°F. Line a 9x9 baking pan with parchment paper, spray it with cooking spray first so that the parchment paper sticks to the pan. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl mix together the melted butter, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, sugar and the graham cracker crumbs. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan and press evenly. It might be easier to use the bottom of a glass to press the crumbs down to make a thin layer. Bake for 10 minutes.

Notes

  1. These little bars will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days. Just store in an airtight container or wrap them up tightly before popping them in.
  2. Cooked cheesecake also freezes really well, just place the bars fully cooled and uncovered on a pan in the freezer and allow to freeze entirely. Remove them and wrap fully in plastic wrap and aluminum foil till ready to eat. This method should ensure the cheesecake bars lasts 3 months.
