  1. . > APPLES - caramelized: (can be made up to a day ahead). Mildly melt the butter at MEDIUM heat. Add the sliced apples. Toss a few times before adding the brown sugar. Once, cooked down and caramelized (about 15 minutes) pour the Grand Marnier. Add and combine the grated nutmeg and cinnamon last. Remove the apple mix from the heat to cool at room temperature.
  2. . > CRUST: Position oven rack in the center. Pre-heat the oven to 350F. Lightly oil a 9 inch pie plate.
  3. . In a blender: crush the cookies and pour in the melted butter as well as the sweet syrup. Pulsate until a fairly pasty-type crumble appears. Spread the crumb mixture into the buttered pie plate. With the aid of a spoon or spatula, spread and pat down the crust uniformly on the bottom and sides of pie plate. BAKE crust for about 15 minutes. Remove to slightly cool.
  4. . >> ASSEMBLY: On a slightly warm pie crust, place the chunks of goat cheese. Once it has softened, very gently spread throughout the bottom of the crust. BAKE for another 20 minutes. Remove and place the pie onto a metal rack. Immediately garnish and decorate the surface with the coarsely chopped almonds. Cool completely before serving.
