Crust

  • 1 1/2 c graham cracker crumbs
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 c butter melted
  • 3/4 c caramel ice cream topping
  • 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
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 c sugar

Topping

  • 3/4 c heavy cream whipped
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 c caramel ice cream topping
  • 1/4 c chopped pecans

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.
  4. Pour caramel into pie shell and sprinkle with 1 cup of chopped pecans. Refrigerate pie shell while making apple filling.
  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.
  6. Reduce oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, using a hand-held mixer on low speed, combine cream cheese and sugar for about 1 minute until smooth. Add egg, lemon juice and vanilla and beat for 1 minute or until fully blended. Pour over apple filling in pie shell.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes until an inserted knife comes out clean. Remove pie from oven and let cool.
  8. Refrigerate for 4 hours. Let stand outside the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Top with whipped cream, caramel and pecans, and swirl with a knife. Slice and serve.
