GF Apple Cream Cheese Crisp

I made this for my in-laws who are visiting this weekend. I was a little hesitant when I put the runny cream cheese layer on, since I've never had apple crisp with cream cheese. But, it turned out well and we all think it's a keeper recipe! Yum - it would be even better with Blue Bunny Cinnamon ice cream on top!

Apple Layer Ingredients:                               ·2 TBS milk
·7 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced              ·2 TBS GF all purpose flour
·2-3 tsp lemon juice                                           Streusel Layer Ingredients:
Cream Cheese Layer Ingredients:                ·1 stick unsalted butter, softened 
·8 oz. cream cheese                                          ·1 cup brown sugar
·¼ cup sugar                                                        ·1 tsp cinnamon
·1 tsp vanilla                                                        ·1 cup oats
·2 eggs                                                                  ·½ cup sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 350˚. In a 9×13 baking dish, layer the sliced apples and toss with lemon juice. To make cream cheese layer: In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add eggs, flour, milk, and vanilla; beat until combined. Layer this mixture over apples. To make streusel layer: In a medium bowl, combine brown sugar, cinnamon, oats, almonds, and cut in butter until the mixture is crumbly. Spread this mixture on top of the apples. Bake for 40 minutes. Store in the fridge.

This looks so delicious! My mom used to make something like this except with cherries.
