This is a delicious recipe with a crust that is flaky and rich. Cream cheese and butter are a match made in heaven for a wonderful tasting crust. I love this slab pie because not only does it taste wonderful, but it feeds a lot of people. It is great to make for a pot luck or for a family gathering. It never fails to impress and gets rave reviews.

How to Make Apple Slab Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Beat cream cheese and 1 cup (2 sticks) butter in large bowl with mixer until blended--I used my stand mixer.
  3. Gradually add 3 cups of flour, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended.
  4. Shape into 2 equal balls.
  5. Place 1 ball on a large slighted floured sheet of waxed paper, flatten slightly. Cover with a second floured sheet of waxed paper. Roll out dough to 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 inch rectangle.
  6. Discard the top sheet of waxed paper. Spray a 15 x 10 x 1 inch baking pan with cooking spray. Invert over rolled out dough. Flip dough and pan together (pan will be on the bottom). Remove the second waxed paper sheet and gently press dough onto the bottom and up the side of the pan.
  7. In a small bowl, whisk the remaining 1/4 cup flour, sugars, and cinnamon.
  8. Toss apples into this mixture coating them well. Spread apples onto the bottom of crust packing them in tightly.
  9. Dot top of apples with the remaining 1/4 cup butter cut or pinched into little pieces.
  10. Repeat the rolling out of the remaining dough ball to make a second rectangle.
  11. Remove top sheet of waxed paper, carefully flip the dough over apples. Discard waxed paper. Tuck edges of dough down sides of pan to enclose apples. Make several slits in top crust to vent.
  12. Bake 40 to 50 minutes, or until nice and golden brown.
  13. Cool 15 minutes.
  14. Meanwhile, mix powdered sugar with apple cider or water.
  15. Drizzle glaze over top in a decorative manner. Cool 30 minutes before cutting. Makes approximately 16 servings. Store leftovers in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
