I used the cheesecake cookie recipe found on this page : http://hearthandhospitality.blogspot.com/2010/03/cheesecake-cookie-bites.html but cut it in half, added apples and dulce de leche. Here's how...
1 cup flour, all purpose or spelt
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into bits
1 8oz. package cream cheese
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 apples, peeled, cored, minced
1 tablespoon apple cider or juice or a few drops lemon juice
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1/3 cup canned dulce de leche, I used Nestle brand, the leftover will last in the fridge for a week or so
1/4 cup cream or whole milk
Mix flour and 1/3 cup brown sugar. Cut in the butter until coarse crumbs.
Press all, except 1 cup, into the bottom of a 9x9 inch baking dish.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg, beat until well combined.
In a small, very heavy bottom saucepan, heat cream. Add dulce de leche, stir constantly until melted together and smooth. Drizzle over chilled bars, either before or after cutting, your choice.
