Apple Cheesecake Pie is a fun twist on two all time favorite desserts; cheesecake and apple pie!

Who doesn’t love apple pie?! Apple pie with a crumb topping (as opposed to a pastry topping) is my favorite way to enjoy it, it’s almost like an apple crisp in an amazing pastry crust!

And of course cheesecake is a given favorite. So often you will see a simple New York cheesecake topped with berries or perhaps converted into something chocolate, caramel or nut inspired.

Rarely, if ever, do you get an apple cheesecake – until now.

Three luscious layers; cheesecake, apple pie and oat crumb topping are so fantastic together, you will wonder why it is not more commonly served!

I have to admit, I cannot take credit for this amazing-ness!

My friend Jocelyn blogs over at Inside BruCrew Life and makes some of the best desserts you’ll find online! I was so excited I to hear she was coming out with a new cookbook…. and I am just as excited to share it with you!

Her cookbook, Cheesecake Love, is an amazing compilation of (you guessed it) cheesecake recipes that are tried, true and delicious!

All of the best from cheesecake muffins and no bake cheesecakes to classic and rich cheesecakes!

This Apple Cheesecake is absolutely perfect nestled in a pie crust and topped with a crumb topping.  While it does contain a few steps, I guarantee you that the effort is worth it!

The key to any recipe is planning and preparation; assembling your ingredients ahead of time and completing each step beforehand saves both time and energy!

When it comes time to put this apple cheesecake pie together, everything is ready and waiting.

Since I make SO many apple desserts, I have a couple of apple tips to share with you!

Tips for Baking with Apples

  • Apples tend to brown quickly. Add a little bit of  lemon juice to the apples in order to stop them from browning. This won’t change the flavor of your dish and will keep them perfectly colored!
  • Using a firm apple (such as granny smith) helps it to hold it’s shape and not get mushy.
  • The apples in this recipe are cooked in both the sauce and baked, so you’ll want to cut your chunks fairly large (about 1/2″)
  • Of course this can vary depending on size, but each apple will result in about 3/4 cup chopped apples. (Grab a couple of extras just in case).
  • Apples should almost always be peeled before baking as the skins can become tough.

Apple Cheesecake Pie is a fun twist on two all time favorite desserts; cheesecake and apple pie! So delicious!

Why choose between apple pie and cheesecake when you can have both with this Apple Cheesecake Pie!  To really take it to the next level, top it with a scoop of ice cream and some Easy Caramel Sauce.

  1. I just made two of these pies . First the crust is not cooked and I baked it @375 for 40 minutes .The apples are still hard not cooked .The cheesecake is a mess runny not frim . what a mess and these were for tomorrow for Thanksgiving . Now I have nothing to bring to my family’s home. I am the baker in the family and everybody looks forward to what I make . This is the first time I have had a failed recipe from the internet . I am always looking for something new . This was a disaster. to top it off the stores are all closed early because of the Holiday so I can’t even replace anything.

    1. Oh no Lynda, how disappointing, I’m sorry to hear this recipe didn’t work out for you.

      I’ve made this recipe as written (which is from the cookbook mentioned in the post) and haven’t had any problems. When cooked the apples are simmered for 10-12 minutes so they should be slightly softened going into the oven and baking should complete them.

      As for the cheesecake, has it been completely cooled? As with most cheesecake recipes the filling will need to cool completely in order to firm up.

  2. I’m making this recipe for my mom birthday this saturday!

    Does regular butter works for the crumb topping or does it HAVE TO BE unsalted?

    Also, I have a 11 3/4 inch pie plate, how much more do you think I have to do of this recipe to fill the plate and get a nice pie? Another half recipe?

    Love from Guatemala!

    1. Regular butter will work just fine. I’ve only made this as written so I can’t say for sure to fill a larger pie plate. Keep in mind you might need to change the baking time.

    1. That’s so disappointing Steven! I can’t say for sure why yours didn’t work out as I haven’t had any problems with this recipe. Which part was mushy? What type of apples did you use (and did you add the egg to the cheesecake portion).

    1. I haven’t tried this with frozen apples before. As long as you’ve drained any excess liquid, it should work just fine!
