Caramel apple cheesecake bars w/ streusel topping

I found this recipe on food network, and adapted it by adding less sugar and more apples. Also, I added lemon juice over the apple to prevent discoloration of the apples.  It turned out delicious...we had second servings. :)



Ingredients:
2 cups WW pastry flour
1/3 c brown sugar
1cup butter
16 oz cream cheese
1/3 c brown sugar
2 eggs
1tsp vanilla extract
4 granny smith apples, diced into cubes
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
Streusel topping, recipe follows

-Combine chopped apples, 2tbsp sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Spoon evenly over cream cheese mixture.
