  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Filling

  • 3 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large Granny Smith Apples peeled, cored, and diced (to keep them from browning, peel and dice them just before you are ready to use them)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar

  • Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool completely.
  • In a large bowl use an electric mixer to beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in eggs and 3/4 cup granulated sugar. Beat in vanilla extract. Spread mixture evenly on top of cooled crust.
  • Mix together apples, 1/3 cup sugar, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Sprinkle apple mixture over cheesecake mixture.
  • In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup flour, 3/4 cup brown sugar, oats, salt, cinnamon, and pecans. Stir in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle mixture over apples.
