Apple Pie with Cream Cheese Topping
The cheesecake-like topping on this unusual pie pairs perfectly with a graham cracker crust.
**Update** We neglected to include a key ingredient, cream cheese, in our November 2017 print edition. Below you'll find the full, corrected version of this recipe.
- 1 graham cracker crust
- 5 apples, sliced thin
- 5 tablespoons butter
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- 1 (8 ounce) carton cream cheese
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- ¼ cup sugar
Preheat over to 350 degrees.
Mix butter, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon in large skillet over medium heat. Add apples and cook until apples are tender. Cool apples, then pour into pie shell.
