Recipe: American Apple Pie Tart

1 – 21oz can apple pie filling
1 cup cheddar cheese, finely grated
½ stick butter
1/3 cup golden raisins
½ cup caramel dessert topping
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 package Pillsbury Refrigerated Crusty French Loaf
3 Tablespoons sugar
¼ teaspoon cinnamon

Egg Wash:
1 egg yolk
4 – 5 drops water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In large bowl, gently mix all ingredients.

On a large cookie sheet, unroll Pillsbury Refrigerated Crusty French loaf. Add filling ingredients to middle of loaf. Start to fold dough sides up over filling, leaving the round opening in the middle of the tart. As you bring dough up to cover tart, tuck in dough, repeat every 4 inches around tart until it is completely closed, leaving a volcano opening on top.

Mix egg yolk and water. Brush onto dough. Combine cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle over tart.

Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven, let cool about 20 minutes.

Optional: Top with vanilla ice cream.

Serves 8.
