I immediately fell in love with just the idea of this Apple Pie Dip from TK member Jennifer. There’s nothing better than soft roasted apples with warm, sweet and creamy cheese in the cool months.

It should have a creamy consistency such as this.

Description

A creamy dip topped with crisp apples and baked until hot and bubbly. You will want to serve this at all your fall gatherings.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE APPLE LAYER:
  • 3 cups Granny Smith Apples, Peeled And Chopped (about 3-4 Apples)
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice
  • ⅓ cups Light Brown Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons All-purpose Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 pinch Ground Nutmeg
  • FOR THE CREAM CHEESE LAYER:
  • 8 ounces, weight Cream Cheese (regular Or Light)
  • ¼ cups Vanilla Non Fat Yogurt
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Cinnamon

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 400ºF.

For the apple layer:
In a medium bowl, toss apples with lemon juice. In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Sprinkle mixture over apples and toss to coat. Set aside.

For the cream cheese layer:
In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese, yogurt, sugars, vanilla and cinnamon until creamy. Spread mixture on the bottom of a 9-inch pie dish. Top cream cheese layer with apples and gently push apples slightly into the cream cheese.

Bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes until hot and bubbly and apples are slightly tender. Serve warm or cold.

Notes: Drizzle with caramel sauce if desired. Serve with pie crust chips, cinnamon pita chips, Nilla wafers or graham crackers. To make pie crust chips, cut “chips” from pre-made pie crust dough. Place on baking sheet and bake in a 400ºF oven for 6-8 minutes until golden brown.

Had high hopes for this recipe. Gathered all the ingredients, and insisted my daughter make this while we were preparing our big Thanksgiving meal. What a letdown. My husband said it didn’t take near as long to throw it out, as it did to make it. No joke. It was horrible!

This looks great! Would you serve this dip with crackers?

Love the idea of baking pie crust chips!!

Can you substitute sour cream for the yogurt? I can’t eat anything with yogurt.

Hi Kathy! Jennifer’s recipe (see the printable at the bottom of the post) suggests serving this with pie crust chips, cinnamon pita chips, Nilla wafers or graham crackers. She also includes quick instructions on making pie crust chips, which I think would go wonderfully well with this dip.
