1

2
medium apples, peeled, diced (about 2 1/2 cups)
1/3
cup packed brown sugar
2
teaspoons all-purpose flour
1
teaspoon lemon juice
1/2
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1
package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/3
cup powdered sugar
1/2
teaspoon vanilla
1
egg

Glaze

1/2
cup powdered sugar
1

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Heat cookie sheet on bottom rack of oven. Meanwhile, place pie crust in 9- or 10-inch tart pan with removable bottom as directed on box for One-Crust Filled Pie. Press in bottom and up side of pan. Trim edge if necessary.
  • 2 In medium microwavable bowl, mix apples, brown sugar, flour, lemon juice and cinnamon. Microwave uncovered on High 2 minutes; stir. Microwave 1 to 2 minutes longer, stirring once, until apples are slightly soft.
  • 3 In another medium bowl, beat cream cheese, 1/3 cup powdered sugar, the vanilla and egg with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy. Spread over bottom of crust. Top evenly with apple mixture (apples will not cover top completely).
  • 4 Place tart pan on heated cookie sheet on bottom rack in oven. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until filling is set, apples are tender and crust is light golden brown. Cool on cooling rack about 30 minutes. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • 5 Just before serving, in small bowl, mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon milk. Stir in additional milk, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, until thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle glaze over tart. Remove side of pan; cut into wedges. Store covered in refrigerator.
