Talking Apple Cream Pie

This is based on a recipe I found in the archives. I changed some things around, and here's what I made yesterday. It is a beautiful presentation!

Apple Cream Pie

1 refrigerated pie crust (I used Pillsbury's)
2 packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla
3 apples (I used granny smith)
2 tablespoons FRESH lemon juice
1/3 cup sugar
1-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


Roll out pastry and fit into 9 inch pie plate. Flute edge. Beat together cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar until smooth.


Peel, core and slice the apples into thin, uniform slices.
Toss apples with lemon juice. Combine 1/3 cup sugar and cinnamon and toss with apples. Let sit.

To the cream cheese mixture, add eggs and vanilla. Pour into pie plate.

Arrange apples (overlapping) in a big circle around the pie, and finish with a smaller overlapping circle in the middle (make sure to cover all of the cream cheese layer).
Bake at 450 degrees 10 minutes. Reduce temperature to 400 degrees an continue baking 25 - 35 minutes.


It is good at room temp, but is very good after it's been chilled in the frige.

8 oz is around 226 grams, Haggis :)
