Banana's Foster Pie

1 box Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 package (5.3 oz) goat cheese
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 small bananas, sliced
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon rum extract
Milk, if desired
Coarse sugar, if desired

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Make pie crusts as directed on box for Two-Crust Pie using 9-inch glass pie plate. In small bowl, beat cream cheese, goat cheese, granulated sugar and vanilla with electric mixer on high speed until smooth. Spread in crust-lined plate; top with banana slices.
2. In 1-quart saucepan, heat butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg over low heat, stirring constantly, until butter is melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat; stir in rum extract. Pour over bananas. Top with second crust and flute; cut slits in several places. Brush with milk; sprinkle with coarse sugar.
3. Cover edge with strips of foil to prevent excessive browning; bake 30 minutes. Remove foil; bake 30 to 40 minutes longer or until golden brown. Cool at least 2 hours before serving. Store covered in refrigerator.
