Two 9 inch pie shells (unbaked)
One 8 oz. package cream cheese
1/2 cup caramel ice cream toping
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tblsp. all purpose flour
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. salt
1 egg
4 cups chopped Granny Smith or other tart apples

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup chopped pecans


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line two 9 inch pans with the pie pastry.

In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, caramel topping, sugar, flour, cinnamon, vanilla and salt and beat until a smooth batter is formed. Add the egg and beat until well mixed. Add the apples and stir with a wooden spoon until well mixed. Pour the mixture into the pastry-lined pans, dividing evenly. 

Bake the pies for 20 minutes. Reduce the oven heat to 350 degrees and bake for 10 minutes.

While the pies are baking, make the topping. Combine the sugar, flour and butter in a shallow bowl. With a pastry blender or two knives, cut the ingredients together until crumbly. Stir in the pecans. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the pies and continue to bake for 15-20 minutes until golden; cool slightly. 

To serve, cut the pies into wedges.
