In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add eggs; beat on low just until combined. Stir in vanilla. Pour over crust. Toss apples with lemon juice, sugar and cinnamon; spoon over filling. Bake at 350ºF for 55-60 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
