"This is a free-form pie with a cream-cheese dough. The original recipe, from Prevention Magazine, was a Rustic Plum Pie. I imagine this would be equally good with other fruits - thinking of trying mango or peaches next. However, my first attempt was with apples, and it was mighty good! I just used cinnamon instead of ginger, and added a few bits of butter (about 2 teaspoons total) dotted on top of the apples. Shaped it oblong rather than round, so that it would fit in my toaster oven."

Love the dough and the pie was delicious! I used strawberries and rhubarb, then topped with whip cream. Perfect ending to our meal!
