Who doesn't like apples? Who doesn't like pie? Mix the two together, you can't go wrong! This is a creative idea because it's not exactly a pie, just uses pie crust like a pizza crust. It tastes amazing, like a little slice of apple pie with a sugary glaze on top. I think this dessert is great to bring to spring/summer BBQ!
I used store bought pie crust, and used both of them. If you have a great recipe of your own I'm sure that will work great too! Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
Roll pie crust out into a rectangle and line the cookie sheet with the dough. I had to cut and paste some of the edges. It doesn't have to look perfect because you won't see it! Set aside.
The first part of this recipe is a little tedious, but stick with it, it'll get easier. Peel, core, and slice six apples into bite size pieces.
Put the bite sized pieces of apple in a large mixing bowl.
Add sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and flour. Stir until the apples are all evenly coated.
Pour apples onto the dough. Spread into an even layer. Set aside.
In a medium sized bowl mix together the flour, brown sugar and oats. Cut in the butter. I mixed this in with my hands, but you can use a fork too.
Mixture should be crumbly, like above.
Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the apples. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the crust is golden brown. My piece of advice here is don't under-cook. I usually like my baked goods gooey, so I cook them a few minuets less than the suggested time, don't do that here. The crust in the middle takes a little longer to cook, if you think they look like they're done, I would cook them an extra two minutes just to make sure!
While the pizza is baking mix together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and milk. Make sure your cream cheese is room temperature so you can combine easier. I mixed it all together and then used a whisk to get all the clumps out.
Once the pizza is finished cooking, remove from the oven and drizzle the cream cheese icing over the top.
Slice and serve. It tastes great served warm and cold. I kept the leftovers in the fridge, and they taste just as great then too! The butter and oats crumbles and the icing really make this a tasty dessert.
