Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9 x 13 baking pan.
FOR THE CRUST
Combine all-purpose flour, old fashioned oats, brown sugar, and unsalted butter in a mixing bowl and combine until crumbly and butter pieces are no longer visible. Press the mixture on bottom of prepared pan. Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
FOR THE FILLING:
2 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
1 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 large egg
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced into 1/4-inch pieces
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until light and creamy; add Marzetti® Caramel Apple Dip and mix until smooth. On low speed, mix in flour; add egg and vanilla and mix just until blended. Pour cream cheese mixture over baked crust.
Arrange apple slices and press them into top of cream cheese layer. Bake 20-25 minutes. Allow bars to cool to room temperature. Cover and chill until firm. Before serving, spread additional dip over top of bars. Cut and serve. Store covered in the refrigerator.
