 Ingredients List

  • Pastry Tart:
  • 1 package Pillsbury™ Crescent Dough Sheet
  • Cream Cheese Layer:
  • 2 pkg. 8 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp. almond or vanilla extract
  • Sliced Apple Mixture:
  • 4-6 Granny Smith apples peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 4 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Old Fashioned Glaze:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. milk or heavy cream


Preheat oven to 400F.
Pastry Tart:
Line a 9x13 pan with with 2 sheets parchment paper, 1 running the length and 1 running the width, both cut to fit and press the prepared crescent dough sheet onto bottom and 1-inch up sides of the pan.

Cream Cheese Layer:
Using a mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add ½ cup sugar and continue beating until combined. Add eggs and beat on low speed just until blended, then pour into crust.

Sliced Apple Mixture:
Place very thinly sliced apples in a large bowl or ziplock bag. Sprinkle with 4 tablespoons of sugar and 4 teaspoons cinnamon and toss to coat apples. Arrange apples over cream cheese mixture in overlapping pattern.

Bake 5 minutes in the preheated 400F oven.

After 5 minutes, reduce oven setting to 350F. Do not take out the tart out of the oven while reducing oven temperature. Bake 30-35 minutes longer until apples are tender, crust is deep golden brown and filling is set.

Take out tart out of the oven and cool on a wire rack.
Old Fashioned Glaze:
While the tart is cooling, prepare the glaze by mixing confectioners' sugar and milk until smooth.
Lift up the parchment paper ends and lift the tart from the pan onto a serving platter.

Drizzle with glaze. Cut into 15 servings and serve immediately.

Refrigerate leftovers covered for up two days.
