It's a caramel apple, cheesecake and streusel-topped apple pie all rolled into one irresistible dessert. If you can’t resist a “taste test” before a party, just arrange them on a serving platter and no one will know a piece is missing from the pan! —Katherine White, Clemmons, North Carolina

MY REVIEW

These bars were delicious!! Several steps, but well worth it. I realized the night before i was having lunch guests that i had not thought about a dessert. I just rec'd the Oct/Nov issue of Simple and Delicious and selected these bars because i had all the ingredients in my pantry. I and my guests were glad i did. This recipe is a keeper!

These bars were a hit at a picnic, and I plan to take them to another one soon. They freeze well!

These bars were a lot of work but certainly worth all the time and effort. I would wait for a special occasion to make them again.
