This has got to be one of the easiest, more complicated recipes ever! Now if you didn't understand what I just said in the last sentence, it's a super easy recipe, but it sounds and tastes complicated (aka, like it took a lot of work and time!).
   Because there are four parts to the recipe, and you have to bake the crust first, I'd consider this a more complicated recipe (more than other ones I've baked).

   It's a sweet treat, but not tooo sweet. Definitely one of those recipes to use if you want to impress someone with a professional tasting dessert.

Bake time: 45 min.
Total time: 1:00

1: In a medium bowl, combine flour and brown sugar. Add butter until mixture is crumbly. Press evenly into a 13"x9"x2" pan, making sure the crust curls up the edges of the pan.. Bake 15 min, or until lightly browned at 350*.

2: While that is baking, In an electric mixer, beat cream cheese with 1/2 cup sugar until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, with vanilla after. Blend until smooth. The smoother the better! Pour over warm crust.

3:In a small bowl, stir together chopped apples, 2 tbsp of sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add apples evenly on top of cream cheese mixture.

4: Mix together in a bowl, brown sugar, flour, quick oats, and butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle evenly overtop of apples on the cheese mixture. Bake 30 minutes at 350* or until filing is set.
