Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars

Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars
These Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars are the most popular recipe on my blog and have been pinned over 1 million times. These creamy cheesecake bars start with a shortbread crust, a thick cheesecake layer, and are topped with diced cinnamon apples and a sweet streusel topping. I can’t believe it’s the end of September and I haven’t posted any apple desserts yet. For me, September is all about the apple! I’ve been making this Paula Deen recipe for a couple of years now and they’ve always been good but they always needed a little more cheesecake filling in my opinion to match the thick crust and ample streusel topping. So I increased the cheesecake filling and these are even better than I remember. You can add the caramel on top of the caramel apple cheesecake bars right before serving or before you chill them. Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars Ingredients Crust: 2 cups all-purpose flour ½ cup firmly packed brown sugar 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened Cheesecake Filling: Apples: Streusel Topping:

Bee Sting Cake (Bienenstich) One of the best parts of being a food blogger (besides all of the food) is the relationships we make with other food bloggers. Sometimes they’re just virtual, some include phone calls, hangouts, or skype, but every now and then we get to meet in person. And those are special moments, at least for me they are. Most of the time it’s like meeting an old friend, getting that face to face time that will tide us over until we get to meet again. That’s what keeps me blogging.

Enchilada Lasagna This is without a doubt my husbands all time favorite dish. I got this recipe from his sister, and made just a few tiny adjustments to it. It is a very mild Mexican dish, and pretty much fail proof. I don't make it often enough though, specially if you ask my hubby. Recipe Diaries » Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites If you’re feeling down or sick, these pretzel bites can really cheer you up. Have you tried the pretzel m&m’s?

These pretzel bites can really cure your craving from something sweet and salty.

Pretty in Pink! I love pink. My kitchen is mostly pink. The Komen Kitchenaid line; I have most of it on display for all visitors to see. I used to hate pink. Black was my favorite color and it is still one of my favorites. Cinnamon-Sugar Pizza I have crescent rolls tucked into every nook and cranny of my fridge. No idea why, but they're there. This recipe, called "Sugar Crumb Crispies" is my new favorite thing. Having a new favorite thing can be dangerous when one is well into pregnancy, but how much damage could I possibly do?

Babka This recipe was inspired by one in our 1990 200th Anniversary Cookbook, which includes a wealth of recipes and information from cultures around the world. You'll notice that, despite being made with yeast, it's an easy batter bread; "no-knead" isn't as new a concept as you might think! 4.65217425 Chicken Enchiladas aka the best enchiladas ever! Thank you so much to Laura, at Tide and Thyme, for introducing me to this recipe. Seriously - they were so so good I can't even tell you. So good in fact, that the leftovers are really calling my name, and I'm trying so hard to resist....

International Incident Party! (Boston Cream Pie Cake Pops) This has a "vintage" feel mostly because I ran low on light! 8) Is anyone else sick of hearing that this or that treat is going to be "the next cupcake"? The sweets I've heard mentioned most are cake pops, French macarons, whoopie pies, and now even regular pies. Happee Monkee » Baking Projects » Matcha Tiramisu I’ve been in Japan for four weeks now.

Quick & Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie For the longest time my quick, go-to Chicken Pot Pie recipe involved canned cream of chicken soup and a homemade biscuit topping. I’m *trying* to stay away from processed foods and to feed my family more naturally, so I came up with this recipe. Which, in my mind, tastes way better then the original anyways. Creme Brulee French Toast Casserole Well I'm back from the beach and back to real life as we were greeted by a falling down fence due to some storm damage, a lot of weeds and a giant spider. Fun stuff. Today was spent cleaning up the messes and doing vacation laundry so since that isn't too fun, I'll tell you about the French toast casserole that I made one morning while we were on vacation. I came across this recipe on Josie's blog, Pink Parsley, a couple weeks ago for a Project Pastry Queen challenge and was intrigued since I love French toast and I had just received The Pastry Queen cookbook in the mail a couple of days earlier. I decided that due to the coincidence, I definitely needed to try the recipe. My recipe is a little different since I didn't want to take too many different ingredients so I used milk instead of heavy cream or half and half as the recipe calls for and French bread instead of Challah, because they didn't have any at the supermarket when I went.
