Maple Crunch Cream Pie

Rated as 4.38 out of 5 Stars

"A rich maple cream filling, topped with cinnamony apples and a crunchy streusel topping - it's heavenly! You can even layer the maple cream and streusel in parfait glasses for a quick elegant dessert! I had some filling and streusel left over when I first made this so I made parfaits and they were fabulous!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place sliced apples in a large bowl, and toss with 4 tablespoons sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Melt 1/4 cup butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute apples until tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Allow to cool.
  3. To make the Streusel Topping: In a medium bowl, mix together oatmeal, flour, 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Drizzle with1/4 cup melted butter, and mix with the fork until mixture resembles chunky crumbs, or granola. If mixture seems too moist, add a little oatmeal or flour until the consistency is right. Sprinkle crumbs onto an ungreased jellyroll pan. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring every 8 minutes or so, until light golden brown and crunchy. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.
  4. To make Maple Cream Filling: In a medium mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in 1 cup milk, pudding mix, and maple extract. Add remaining 1/2 cup milk, and beat until smooth. Spread cream cheese mixture into pie shell and refrigerate until apples are cool.
  5. After apples have cooled, remove them from skillet with a slotted spoon and transfer to a bowl. Reserve remaining apple syrup to drizzle over streusel. Arrange cooled apples over maple cream, then sprinkle with cooled streusel. Drizzle the reserved apple syrup over the top and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving in order to allow the maple cream to firm up.

Excellent variation of an apple pie! I made it for Thanksgiving and my family ALL loved it! It is definately a keeper.

The apple and streusel layers are great, BUT the maple cream layer just doesn't go well with the rest of the pie. It just wasn't a good tasting pie because of the cream layer!

Excellent variation of an apple pie! I made it for Thanksgiving and my family ALL loved it! It is definately a keeper.

Very Good !!! I added a few walnuts to the topping. I will definitely make this again.

I thought this pie was 'ok'....everyone who tried it felt the same. I followed the instructions exactly. I think maybe the pie would have tasted better if I only used half the filling, because t...

Made this as directed, except I subsituted Maple & Brown Sugar instant oatmeal for the rolled oats, and maple syrup for the maple extract. It's quite tasty and the maple cream layer cuts the sw...

This was really good. I halved the cream cheese layer because some people said it didn't go well with the apples. I didn't have any maple extract so I used maple granola in the cruncy topping, a...

I thought this pie was SOOOO good! For some reason, I didn't have extra sauce from the apples to drizzle over the top. Next time, I will use more butter.
