Deep Apple Cream Cheese Dish!


Similar to apple pie but a whole lot better!

(Apple Pie filling)

Ingredients:

Thinly sliced apples . I used a bag of Chiquita Red Apple Bites. Just peeled the skin.       IMAG0721

Half cup of lemon juice

4 1/2 cups of sugar

1 cup of cornstarch

1 tbsp ground cinnomon

dash of salt

1/4 tsp nutmeg

10 cups of water

First,peel extra skin off apples then let them soak in lemon juice for a few minutes while you prepare the other ingredients.Boil a pot of water.

You get a thick consistency when ready.

And that’s how you make apple filling! 🙂

Take a can of buttery crescents and layer the bottom of a oven safe glass dish.Pinch the sides so it’ll hold together. Use flour on your hands if you choose not to get too sticky.

Next, spread an even layer of the cream cheese mix on top of the crescents.And then add the apple filling on top of that!

You don’t need to use all of it though. Mostly just the apples need to be in the middle and some of the liquid filling.Save some for drizzling on the top to!

IMAG0736

After you’ve done your bottom layer,cream cheesed it,poured some of the apple filling on top of that, now add another layer of crescent rolls to seal the deal.

Don’t forget to drizzle the top with that extra filling!!

Bake at 350 until golden brown. 20-25 minutes.
