Share

Ingredients :

  • 1 (14.1 ounce) package refrigerated pie crusts, at room temperature
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • ⅓ cup white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 4 large Granny Smith apples – peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ (7 ounce) package almond paste
  • 3 tablespoons apricot jam
  • Methods :

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Step 2

    Unroll 1 pie crust on a work surface. Cut out 2- to 3-inch hearts (or desired shape) with a cookie cutter. Transfer to an ungreased cookie sheet.

  • Step 3

    Bake in the preheated oven until light golden brown, about 8 minutes. Set aside to cool.

  • Step 4

    Mix cream cheese, white sugar, egg, lemon zest, and salt in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.

  • Step 5

    Mix sliced apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon together in a large bowl.

  • Step 6

    Unroll the second pie crust in an ungreased, 9-inch glass pie plate.

  • Step 7

    Roll almond paste into a thin, 7-inch circle between 2 sheets of waxed paper. Remove the top sheet of waxed paper and turn the almond paste circle into the crust-lined pie plate; gently press into the pie crust and remove the waxed paper. Spread cream cheese mixture over almond paste and arrange apples in a circular pattern over top.

  • Step 8

    Bake in the preheated oven until filling is set and slightly puffed, 40 to 45 minutes.

  • Step 9

    Microwave apricot jam in a small, microwave-safe bowl, uncovered, at medium power (50%) for 1 minute. Brush over apples. Top with heart cutouts. Cool until filling sets, about 1 hour.
