Preheat oven to 400 degrees F, and spray a 9x13-inch baking pan with non-stick spray.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and butter together with a hand mixer. Gradually add 3 cups of flour and mix on low speed until just combined. Shape into two equal-sized balls of dough.
Press one ball of dough into the bottom of the dish, making sure to get all the way to the sides and each corner.
Spread sliced apples evenly over the top of the dough. Sprinkle with flour, cinnamon and sugar. Sprinkle caramel bits over the apples.
Crumble remaining dough over the top of the dish, as evenly as possible.
Bake for about 35 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool 15 minutes. Drizzle with caramel sauce and cut into bars.
