Easy Apple Cheesecake Bars are delicious fall dessert with crescent rolls, cream cheese, fresh apples and buttery cinnamon sugar topping. Save leftovers for breakfast! It’s perfect idea for make ahead, grab and go breakfast on busy mornings. Preparing these bars is similar in easiness as preparing this Custard Cake but more suited for mornings.

To tell the truth, these simple and quick recipe for Easy Apple Cheesecake Bars was inspired by my favorite pastry-Apple Cream Cheese Danish. But this time I left out the glaze and topped these bars with a lot of melted butter and cinnamon sugar mixture to create a sweet, crispy and buttery crust.

Actually, Easy Apple Cheesecake Bars taste almost like Cheesecake Sopapilla Bars but upgraded with apple pie filling. WOW, my moth waters right now, I wish I saved a few of these yummy bars for later.
In fact, when I think about all my favorite treats, they all start with 2 ingredients: cream cheese and crescent rolls.

No wonder that I tried so many recipes combining these two with different add-ins and make delicious desserts and breakfast: Easy Cream Cheese Danish, Just Ordinary Cheesecake Bars , Sopapilla Blueberry Cheesecake Bars  …

Moreover I love this type of baked goods because they are very satisfying as a dessert, but you can eat leftovers for breakfast. It’s a win-win situation.

I carried away lately(and to tell the truth, became a bit lazy)therefore many of my latest recipes starts with refrigerated crescent rolls (Southwest Crescent Casserole,  Cheesy Chicken Crescent Dinner Rolls, Pumpkin Pie Bombs ) or refrigerated cinnamon rolls ( Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Roll CasseroleCaramel Apple Cinnamon Roll Lasagna and refrigerated pie crusts (Peach Pie Cookies and  Crumble Mini Peach Pie ).

But these are all very delicious recipes, and you liked them, too. After all let’s be honest, who doesn’t like simple, quick and easy recipes that makes really delicious food, whether it comes to breakfast, dinner or dessert.

  1. May I make a recommendation? Drizzle some honey on top right after baking, Sopapilas are basically honey, cinnamon sugar, butter and dough. Trust me, people will be stabbing each other to get them! I am going to try out the apples, that's genius!
