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!

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.

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.
