What an unusual apple pie! It is really a cross between an apple pie and cheesecake. There is a lovely layer of spiced apples on the bottom with a cheesecake layer on top of the apples. I was hoping that the caramel would be ooey gooey but it actually made a thin layer of caramel syrup below the apples. My family really enjoyed the nice combination of flavors. This is a simple looking pie not an elegant pie. NOTE: It is important that you don't exceed the 4 cups of apples or you will find that you will overfill the pie. It might be a good idea to use a deep dish pie crust rather than a regular crust as my pie was almost spilling over the edges. Thanks for a unique recipe!
