Candy Apple Pie

Ok, Ok I know it is not a great pic but it is by far the best and this pie was so great I just had to share it with you. It is an apple pie but not in the terms of a fall/winter time but more of a summer apple pie. As you can see in the picture, it barely contains itself when you cut into it but, it is so yummy to eat. This would still go perfect with a big scoop off ice cream, perhaps butter pecan?

For the crust:
3 TBL sugar
11/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/2 tsp group cinnamon
1/3 cup butter, melted
(with all of that posted I will say that I used 11/2 cup honey Ohs (the cereal), 1/4 cup stick melted butter, no sugar, and 1 tsp cinnamon) I am trying cereals as bases right now

For the Filling:
5 granny Smith Apples, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
5 tbl butter

For the cream cheese topping:
1 (8oz) package of cream cheese, softened
1 TBL fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
11/2 tsp vanilla

For the topping:
3/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
1/4 cup chopped pecans

Preheat Oven to 370〫
In large bowl combine the sugar, graham cracker crumbs, cinnamon and melted butter. Mix well and evenly pressing into a 9" pie pan. Bake for 16 min. Cool on Wire rack.
For filling, in a medium sauce pan oven medium heat, combine apples, brown sugar, salt and butter. Stir occasionally, cook until apples just start to soften, about 10 min. Pour into crust, juice and all.
For the cream cheese topping, combine cream cheese, lemon juice, sugar, and vanilla in a bowl. Mix well and spread the cream cheese evenly over the apples.
Bake until golden brown crust forms, about 30 min. Transfer to a wire rack and cool.
Top with carmel sauce and pecans.
