Streusel-Topped Apple Cheesecake Recipe

I love cheesecake & apple pie so I thought this would be a great combination! It has everything that makes an apple pie delicious - apples, cinnamon, and a nice crumble topping plus the creamy-ness of a cheesecake!

"One of the best desserts I have ever made! Thank you healthy Cooking! My grocery store did not have fat-free cream cheese (shame on you Publix!) so I used 3 packages of reduced-fat cream cheese. I used 3 small Granny Smith apples.
