Apple Cheesecake Pie

Servings 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 recipe Perfect Pie Crust (link in instructions below)

Cheesecake:

  • 1 (8oz) package cream cheese (I used Neufchatel)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg

Apple Pie Filling:

  • 6 large apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 6 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch
  • cinnamon-sugar

Instructions

  • Prepare the Perfect Pie Crust, divide the dough in half, roll out one half of the dough into a circle, and place it inside a pie dish. Cut off excess crust on the edges. Keep the other half of the pie crust covered so it doesn't dry out.
  • In a small bowl with a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese and sugar until creamy. Beat in the egg until smooth. Spread onto the bottom of the prepared pie crust.
  • In a large bowl, combine apples, lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cornstarch. Toss to coat and then GENTLY spoon the apples and their juices onto the cheesecake layer.
  • Lightly wet the edges of the pie crust in the dish with a little water on your fingertips. Roll out the other half of the pie crust dough, cut it into ten 1-inch strips, and weave a lattice top over the pie with five strips criss-crossing and weaving over and under the other five strips. Cut off excess dough and crimp edges. Sprinkle the top generously with cinnamon-sugar.
  • Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 60 minutes or until crust is baked and the apple pie filling is bubbling in the center. Allow to cool completely before serving. Keep refrigerated.
