- 2 pounds apples
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice
- 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/2 cup whipping cream
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons caramel sauce (ie: ice cream topping)
- 1 (8-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
- 2-3 packages graham crackers as needed
- 1 (8-ounce) frozen whipped topping, thawed
- 1/4 cup caramel sauce
- 1/2 cup Heath toffee bits
Peel, core and chop apples into inch size pieces. Place apples into a small saucepan and toss with the flour, sugar and spices. Add the lemon juice and syrup and toss again. Place over medium high heat and cook, stirring from time to time until apples are bubbling and have softened, about 18 minutes. Remove from pan and place into the refrigerator for 10 minutes while preparing the next mixtures.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until it is smooth and fluffy, then add the sugars and cinnamon and beat again. With the machine running, beat in the cream and vanilla for 2 minutes. Stir in the caramel sauce and the thawed whipped topping and set aside.
In a 9 x 13 serving dish, place two layers of graham crackers, breaking a few as necessary to completely cover the entire bottom of the dish. Spoon one third of the cream cheese mixture on top and smooth to cover completely and then top with one third of the apple mixture, distributing evenly. Add a layer of one third of the whipped topping. Repeat this layering twice more: cream cheese, apples, whipped topping.
Drizzle the caramel sauce over the top and sprinkle with the toffee bits. Cover lightly with plastic wrap and set into the refrigerator for 8 hours or more so that the mixtures soften the graham crackers. Serve while cold.
