Butterscotch Apple Cheesecake Bars

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour, regular or gluten free*
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups (about 2 large or 3 small) tart apples, peeled and diced
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 3/4 cup butterscotch chips
  • Cheesecake filling:
  • 8 ounce cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • optional: caramel ice cream topping


Preheat 350ºF. Spray 9X13 pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl stir together sugar, eggs, and vegetable oil. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
Once it is well mixed (it will really thick, like cookie dough), stir in apples, butterscotch chips, and walnuts. Since it is so thick, I ended up using my hands and kind of kneading it in. Don't worry if everything isn't incorporated all the way. It will all bake together when you press it in the pan. Reserve 2 cups and set aside.
Press remaining dough evenly in 9X13 pan. Set aside.
In a small bowl place all cheesecake filling ingredients. Beat until smooth. Pour over apple dough in pan. Smooth with offset spatula.
Using reserved apple dough to dollop all over top of cheesecake. It's okay if there the cheesecake filling is still visible.
Bake 40-45 minutes if using regular flour, 5 minutes longer if using gluten free. Insert knife to make sure apple dough is cooked in middle. Cool 15 minutes, then drizzle with caramel topping, if using.
