Crumb Topping:

  • In medium-size bowl, stir together brown sugar, flour, salt and cinnamon. With fingertips, rub in butter until texture resembles coarse meal. Stir in chopped pecans.

Filling:

  • In medium-size bowl, beat cream cheese, egg, flour and vanilla until smooth. Cover; refrigerate.

  • Punch down dough; let rest for 5 minutes.

  • Coat 10-inch springform pan with cooking spray. On floured surface, roll dough into 14-inch circle. Transfer to prepared pan; press over bottom and halfway up sides. Spread cream cheese mixture over dough in bottom of pan, but not up sides. Top with 1 cup pie filling; refrigerate remainder, covered, for ice cream topper at another time. Sprinkle with crumb topping. Cover pan with towel. Let rise 1 hour; edges of cake will come almost to top of pan.
