Apple Cheesecake Pie from the Pillsbury site!

Apple Cheesecake Pie

You Need:

box Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
cup granulated sugar
teaspoon vanilla
teaspoon almond extract
large apples, peeled, thinly sliced (8 cups)
1 1/2
teaspoons lemon juice
tablespoons packed brown sugar
teaspoons cornstarch
1 1/2
teaspoons ground cinnamon
egg white
tablespoon water
teaspoon granulated sugar
teaspoon ground cinnamon

To Make:

  • 1Heat oven to 400°F. Line cookie sheet with foil; place in oven. Make pie crusts as directed on box for Two-Crust Pie using 9-inch glass pie plate.
  • 2In large bowl, beat cream cheese, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, the vanilla and almond extract with electric mixer on high speed until smooth. Beat in eggs, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into crust-lined plate. In another large bowl, toss apples and lemon juice to coat; stir in brown sugar, cornstarch and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Spoon apple mixture over cream cheese mixture.
  • 3Unroll second crust on lightly floured work surface. With 2- to 2 1/2-inch apple-shaped cookie cutter, cut out apple shapes. Reroll scraps and cut out additional apple shapes. Using pancake turner, gently arrange apple shapes on top of pie to cover most of filling.
  • 4In small bowl, beat egg white and water until blended. Brush over apple shapes. In another small bowl, mix 1 teaspoon granulated sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; sprinkle over apple shapes.
  • 5Place pie on foil-lined cookie sheet in oven. Cover pie with sheet of foil to prevent excessive browning; bake 20 minutes. Remove foil; bake 20 to 25 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown. Cool on wire rack; refrigerate at least 6 hours or overnight. Serve cold. Store covered in refrigerator.


Kim Wroten of Walkersville, Maryland, won 1st Place with this recipe at the Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crusts Pie Baking Championship, 2009 Maryland State Fair.

This pie can be made with a traditional lattice top crust in lieu of the apple-shape cut-outs, if preferred.
