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

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.
