Meet the Cook: When I first made this pie for my family, the reactions weren't real words - they were more "Ooh!" and "Mmm!" I created it to enter in a local fair. My goal was an apple pie like no other, and it ended up winning third prize. ("That was very interesting!" one judge said.) Working with children is something I love. In fact, I hold "Fun with Food" classes after school for elementary students ages 6-8. My own family consists of my husband and our daughter, 11. -Lisa DiNuccio, Boxford, Massachusetts

Ingredients

  • 1 pastry shell (9 inches)
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 4 medium tart apples, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice, divided
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Directions

Line unpricked pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450° for 8 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack.
In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter and brown sugar. Stir in apples and 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice; simmer for 12-15 minutes, stirring frequently, or until tender.
Stir in flour; cook and stir for 1 minute. Drizzle caramel topping over pastry shell; sprinkle with pecans. Spoon apple mixture over pecans; set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, egg, lemon juice and vanilla until smooth. Pour over apples. Bake at 350° for 35-45 minutes or until a knife inserted into the cream cheese layer comes out clean.

"I rated this as a 5* recipe. I tried this recipe 11/01/14 and have found it to be very good! I admit that I had made slight adjustments on this recipe. I baked this pie for 45 to 50 minutes. delowenstein

(I have tried to list the other adjustments, but I couldn't get any farther than what I've reviewed here!)"
