Makes about 18-24 bars depending on how you cut them.
2 cups flour
1 1/4 cups oatmeal
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup butter
2 pkgs. cream cheese (8 oz. each)
1/2 cup sugar
1 t. vanilla
1 can (21 oz) apple pie filling
1/2 t. cinnamon
Mix together flour, oatmeal and brown sugar. Cut butter into mixture until it is coarse and crumbly. Reserve about 1 1/4 cups of of crumb mixture. Press remaining crumb mixture into a greased 9 x 13 pan. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes. Let cool for 10 or so minutes.
Beat the cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla together until smooth. Spread over the cream cheese mixture. Mix the pie filling and cinnamon together and spread over the cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture over the top.
Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes. Cool about 30-35 minutes and then refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
Cut into bars. If there are any left over, store them in the refrigerator.
I saw a recipe for these bars in a magazine, but it called for an oatmeal cookie mix. I don't buy cookie mixes, so I came up with my own crust base and modified the filling a bit. These were a huge hit. My husband says they need to be served with a big glass of milk. I thought they were evil and very moreish. This is a definite winner!
