Place dough in separate bowls, cover with plastic wrap. Allow to rise at room temperature for about 1 hour, then store in the refrigerator 2 hours to overnight.

  3. For apples: In a food processor pulse butter, flour, brown sugar, and pecans into coarse crumbs. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes until slightly softened. Flame Calvados. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt let cool.
  4. For crumb topping: In a food processor pulse butter, flour, brown sugar and pecans into coarse crumbs. Cook in a non-stick saute pan for 1 minute. Let cool. 
  5. Assembly: Spread each dough to form a 10-inch circle. On each dough circle spread half of the cheese mixture. Top with half of the apples, and sauce. Sprinkle half crumb mixture, and bake at 475 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. Serve warm, with vanilla ice cream and dust with cinnamon sugar.
