Lazy Gluten Free: Apple Cream Cheese Pie

Apple Cream Cheese Pie

If you are looking for a super simple and delicious summer dessert, look no further. My mom found this recipe in her 2008 Taste of Home cook book and decided to give it a try. It took very little time to prepare, and it was an instant hit with the whole family. You could easily change it up by using a different pie filling for the topping such as, blueberry or cherry. Or mix them for a nice 4th of July themed dessert :)

Apple Cream Cheese Pie

You will need:
1 8oz package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 8oz package Cool Whip, thawed
1-1/2 cups S'morables Gluten Free Graham Crackers
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter
1 10oz can apple pie topping (or other fruit)
Dash ground cinnamon

1) Place S'morables in a food processor and pulse until a mixture of fine to medium crumbs is present. Pour into a medium-sized mixing bowl and add the sugar. Cut in butter and mix well. Spread and pack mixture in a 9-inch pie plate sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.

2) In the bowl of a mixer, combine the cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Mix in the vanilla. Fold in the whipped topping.

3) Pour cream cheese mixture into prepared crust; spread evenly. Top with pie filling and sprinkle with cinnamon (if using apple filling).

4) Refrigerate for 2 or more hours.
