Cream, apples, and granola...what's not to love about this soft, fluffy version of apple pie! To make the apple pie cream you first mix together mascarpone cheese, sugar, and amaretto and then after using a hand mixer on some whipping cream you pour the mascarpone mixture into the whipping cream. This apple pie actually gets chilled before serving so allow enough time to make and refrigerate before your guests arrive. Check out Better Homes and Gardensfor the complete recipe.
