With a granola crust and mascarpone cheese topping, this is not your ordinary apple pie. A cool, creamy slice is the perfect ending to a holiday meal (or any other meal!). I actually use homemade granola instead of crushed granola bars :-)

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Combine all crust ingredients and press on bottom and sides of greased 9-inch pie plate.
  2. Bake crust 10 minutes at 350 degrees, and cool on rack.
  3. For filling, melt 2 T butter over medium heat in large skillet; stir in brown sugar, lemon juice, and cinnamon.
  4. Stir in apples and cook uncovered over medium heat for 25 minutes (or until apples are very tender), stirring occasionally.
  5. When finished cooking apple mixture, cool 15 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, beat cheese, sugar, and amaretto with electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds, until light and fluffy.
  7. In separate bowl beat whipping cream until soft peaks form, and beat into cheese mixture on low speed until combined.
  8. Alternate layers of apple and cheese mixtures in crust, making four layers and ending with the cheese mixture.
  9. Cover loosely and chill at least 4 hours/up to 24 hours.
