Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 cups chopped peeled tart apples
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened apple juice
  • 1 tube (4 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoons 2% milk

Directions

In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add apples and juice; toss to coat. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat.
Separate crescent dough into four triangles. On a lightly floured surface, roll two triangles into 5-in. circles. Place each into an 8-oz. ramekin, pressing dough onto the bottom and 1/2 in. up the sides.
In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and vanilla. Spread over dough in ramekins. Top with apple mixture. Roll out remaining crescent dough into 4-in. circles; place over filling. Cut slits in top.
Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until filling is bubbly and topping is golden brown. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over pies. Serve warm. Yield: 2 servings.

"Very good, so says my husband. Had a bit extra filling and put in ramekin and baked without the crust. The filling is excellent, would be great on toast also."
