Prize-Winning Recipe Fall 2010! Cookie mix creates the easy, press-in-the-pan sweet crust for an apple and Cheddar dessert.
pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
teaspoon apple pie spice
cup cold butter or margarine, cut into pieces
cup chopped pecans
cup finely shredded Cheddar cheese
can (21 oz) apple pie filling with more fruit
Heat oven to 350°F. Place cookie sheet in oven. Spray 10-inch tart pan with removable bottom with cooking spray. In large bowl, stir cookie mix and apple pie spice until blended. Cut in butter using pastry blender or fork until mixture is crumbly. Reserve 1 cup of the crumb mixture in a small bowl; stir in pecans and cheese.
To remaining crumb mixture in large bowl, stir in egg white until soft dough forms. Press dough in bottom and up sides of tart pan.
Place apple pie filling in medium bowl. Using knife, cut apples into small pieces. Spoon apple mixture evenly over cookie dough crust. Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture over apples.
Place tart pan on cookie sheet in oven. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until edges are golden brown and topping is set. Cool completely, about 1 hour. To serve, remove sides of pan; cut into wedges. Store covered at room temperature.
If you don't have apple pie spice, use 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice and 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom.
Serve with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
