  • In a bowl, beat together cream cheese, the 6 tablespoons water, the 3 tablespoons sugar, and the egg with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Set aside.

  • In a large saucepan, combine the 3/4 cup sugar, the cornstarch, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in the 2 tablespoons water; add apples. Cook and stir gently over low heat until apples are transparent and mixture is slightly thick.

  • Spread the pastry in pan with half of the cream cheese mixture. Place an 8-1/2-inch circle of pastry on top. Spoon in all of the apple mixture, arranging slices evenly. Top with nuts.

  • Add the remaining pastry circle. Spread with remaining cream cheese mixture. Fold the overhanging pastry toward the center, pleating edges as necessary to partially cover cream cheese layer.

  • Bake in a 400 degree F oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 375 degrees F and bake about 35 minutes more or until crust is golden. Remove from oven. Sprinkle top with additional sugar.

  • Cut into wedges. Serve warm. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
