Apple Cranberry Cheesecake Bars

I made this for dessert this week.  It was very good.  It is rich, so you only need a small piece.

Apple Cranberry Cheesecake Bars

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups oats
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
2 cups (12 ounces) white chocolate chips
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (21-ounce) can Lucky Leaf Apple Cranberry Pie Filling

Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease 13 x 9-inch baking pan.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats and brown sugar. Cut butter into chunks and add to flour mixture, cutting in with a pastry blender or forks until the mixture is crumbly. Stir in the white chocolate chips. Measure out 2 1/2 cups of the mixture and set aside.

Press the remaining mixture into the bottom of your baking pan, pressing firmly with floured fingers
In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese until creamy. Add the sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice, and vanilla extract and mix until smooth. Pour over the crust.

Spoon pie filling over the cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle the reserved flour mixture on top.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until center is set. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cover; and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
