French Apple Cream Pie

This is an unusual dessert that's like a traditional baked apple pie, but the only baking is for the cheesecake topping. Not what you would expect, but very tasty. We got this at a recipe shower when we were first married and it's become a family favorite.

    This is a recipe that was published years ago in Sunset magazine. There are 2 differences here from the original recipe. The amount of sugar was only 1/2 to 2/3 cup (to taste) and ground nutmeg was only 1/4 teaspoon. I prefer to not use the coconut but this is a wonderful pie recipe.
