Apple-Cinnamon Streusel Bars
Ingredients
  • 2  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2  cups  rolled oats
  • 3/4  cup  granulated sugar
  • 2  teaspoons  ground cinnamon
  • 1  teaspoon  ground ginger
  • 1  cup  butter, cut into 8 pieces
  • 1 8  ounce package  cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2  cup  finely chopped dried apples
  • 1/2  cup  chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 1/2  cup  sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4  cup  pure maple syrup
  • 1  teaspoon  ground cinnamon
  • 1  cup  powdered sugar
  • 3 - 4  teaspoons  milk
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. For crust, in a large bowl stir together flour, oats, granulated sugar, the 2 teaspoons cinnamon, and ginger. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. For topping, set aside 1 cup of the crust mixture. Press remaining crust mixture evenly and firmly onto the bottom of a 13x9x2-inch baking pan; set aside.

2. For filling, in a medium bowl beat cream cheese, apples, walnuts, sweetened condensed milk, maple syrup, and the 1 teaspoon cinnamon with an electric mixer on medium speed until well combined. Spread filling over crust in pan. Sprinkle evenly with reserved topping.

3. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until topping is light brown. Cool in pan on a wire rack.

4. For icing, in a small bowl stir together powdered sugar and enough of the milk to make an icing of drizzling consistency. Drizzle over uncut bars. To serve, cut into bars.
