Candy & Caramel Apple Pie // This delicious pie has a special graham cracker crust and cheesecake-like topping! | Tried and TastyI told you this week was special at TriedandTasty. Not only is it MY birthday week, but it’s also my mother’s birthday week as well! Had I been born 17 minutes earlier, we would have shared the same day :) . This special post is “dedicated” to my wonderful mother. I’m not particularly a pie fan, let alone apple pie. My dad LOVES apple pie and is always buying the frozen pies and baking them. I’ve never been a fan. I think it’s the crust. I don’t care for pie crust. This however, this special recipe doesn’t have pie crust. It has a delicious graham cracker crust! Not only that, but there’s a cheesecake like topping. Oh yea! Besides all of that it’s simply gorgeous and the picture alone was begging me to make it! I also feel as though apple pie screams summer. Does it scream summer? Well this post is perfect for everyone! A delicious summertime sweet apple-ly delightfulness! Happy birthday mom!!!

  • 1 c chopped pecans

Apple Filling

  • 5 Granny Smith apples peeled, cored, sliced very thin
  • 5 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Cream Cheese Topping

  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the crumbs, sugar, cinnamon and melted butter. Mix well and press into a 10-inch pie plate and up the sides.
  3. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes until golden in color. Remove pie shell from oven and cool completely.

  5. In a large (12-inch) skilet over medium heat, melt butter and add brown sugar, salt and cinnamon. Stir with a wooden spoon. Add apples and stir. Cook over medium to medium-high heat for 15 to 20 minutes until apples are softened and tender. Let cool for 10 minutes and pour into pie shell.
