Apple Caramel Cheesecake Bars

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup cold butter, cubed
2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 Harvest Haven eggs, lightly beaten
3 medium Harvest Haven apples, peeled and finely chopped
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/3 cup cold butter, cubed
1/3 cup caramel

Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, combine flour and brown sugar; cut in butter until crumbly. Press into a well-greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Bake 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla until smooth. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined. Spread over crust.

In a small bowl, toss apples with cinnamon, and remaining sugar; spoon over cream cheese layer. In another bowl, mix flour, brown sugar and oats; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over apple layer.

Bake 25-30 minutes or until filling is set. Drizzle with caramel; cool in pan on a wire rack 1 hour.

Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Cut into bars.
