This was indeed a very good pie and quickly devoured by everyone! I made some changes based on the other reviews and the pie came out perfect. I like cinnamon so I did not change any of the spices for me it was perfect. I cut the cream cheese and the powdered sugar in half (I had to heat the cream cheese in the microwave for 20 seconds to soften enough to blend with the sugar) Also I used 8 cups of sliced apples rather than 6. This way the filling was not so runny. I didn't have the turbinado sugar so I simply sprinkled the top crust with a bit of cinnamon and sugar. I used a deep dish pie plate and increased the baking time by 10 additional minutes due to the extra apples. It did not leak or run over on the cookie sheet at all. In fact it baked to perfection. This is not a pie to serve right out of the oven let it sit for about an hour to allow the filling to thicken. I'll be sure to make this again thanks for the recipe! This might also be a great pie to add a crumb topping too like a dutch applepie. A mix of oatmeal nuts flour brown sugar and butter would make a delicious addition to this yummy fall treat. Read More

This was really delicious but I'm not sure where I went wrong.... We've been calling this "pie soup" at my house. As soon as the first slice was out the rest of the filling leaked out all over the pie plate. It's impossible to eat! What you can get though is very yummy. Flavour is just perfect. Read More

Great Tasting! However next time I'll cut the brown sugar and spices in half. Plain caramel squares cut up into pieces works fine for this too! Read More

This was a wonderful dish that I made for my friends birthday. Everyone loved it and wanted the recipe. I added more apples so that it would not turn out runny I also used carmel could not find the apple caramel ring due to being the wrong season of making it.I used 1/2 cup of carmel instead. Would make it again and it makes your kitchen smell wonderful too while in the oven.. Read More

I made this for a dinner for a group from church. I put half as much cream cheese brown and powdered sugar and it was still plenty sweet enough. Everyone loved it! I will make it again. Read More

This pie tastes fantastic! The only problem is that the "filling" will over-flow when cooking. So either cut down on the filling a little bit or make your crust a little bit bigger & deeper which is what I do. Also set a small bowl of lemon juice out when you are slicing the apples & dip your fingers in it to rub on the slices to prevent browning. The spice & sugar ratio is just right for a double crust pie. This is the best tasting apple pie that I have ever had. My Dad called me & said that this was the best apple pie that he had ever had. My family & my in-laws all request it now for all of our get togethers including the holidays! I promise that it will be a big hit for you as well! Read More

This was an excellant pie. My husband even liked it and he doesn't like sweets. I've never thought of putting cream cheese in a pie and it was perfectly deliscious. Read More

My husband said "the best apple pie filling I've ever had but would be better with a streusel-type topping". Read More

Too strong of a spice flavor. Would definitely cut back on that as well as the sweetness. Wouldn't bother making again. Only fair. Would rather try other recipes before doing this one again. Read More
