Let's Make It
Melt butter in large skillet on medium heat. Add sugar and apples; cook 8 to 10 min. or until apples are softened and sauce is thickened, stirring occasionally. Cool.
Heat oven to 350ºF. Divide dough for Cheddar Pie Crust in half; place half the dough on lightly floured surface. Roll into 12x10-inch rectangle. Spread half the cream cheese spread down center of dough rectangle; top with half the apple mixture.
Use sharp knife to cut pastry on both sides of apple mixture into 1-inch-wide strips; fold alternately over apple mixture to resemble braid. Fold over pastry at both ends of braid; press into braided pastry to seal. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make second braid. Place braids on large parchment-covered baking sheet.
Bake 25 to 30 min. or until golden brown. Transfer to wire racks; cool slightly.
You'll know it's a special occasion when the aroma of this Twisted Apple Braid fills your home. At 16 servings, it makes plenty to share.
Sprinkle both braids lightly with powdered sugar just before serving.
For shinier, more golden crusts, brush apple braids evenly with 1 beaten egg before baking as directed.
