Quick Apple Cream Pie Recipe

Arranging Apple slices in a pretty design gives this pie the appearance of a fancy tart. Its rich custard-like filling has an elegant flavor but is easy to prepare. The recipe was passed down by my grandmother, whose love of cooking I've inherited.

added some maple syrup to the apple mixture in the skillet and to the cream cheese mixture in the mixer. Came out well. Served after 4 hours. Over all a good recipe to have that isnt expensive or time consuming
