Apple Streusel Cheesecake Bars

This incredible recipe came from the kitchen of my friend Sierra. Apple Streusel is more of a fall favorite yet I often find myself making this dessert in the spring! It's amazing all year round, really. It comes together quickly and easily and is best made in the morning or the day before you want to eat it (so it has plenty of time to cool and refrigerate). That's the only downside-I'm not good a waiting to eat something this delicious.
