Delicious baked apple pie topped with an unbaked cream cheese layer...YUMMY! This can also be made in a 8 x 8-inch square baking pan.

This was a yummy dense apple cake. I wasn't expecting the cream cheese layer to taste so much like cream cheese frosting and I think that with the sweet apple cake it was too sweet. But I love the idea and I plan on making it again with a lot less sugar in the cream cheese layer. I also really enjoyed this cold the next day.
