Perfect Apple Pie Cheesecake Recipe
I am constantly trying to come up with new apple pie recipes. Apple pie is one of my favorites (especially with a crumb topping) and I feel like there are so many variations you can make with apple pie. You can make a lattice apple pie or apple slab pie, or even mini apple pies.
When I was making my lists of pie recipes for this fall, I decided I wanted to marry two of my favorites: cheesecake and apple pie. I’ve made a caramel apple cheesecake before and it was delicious, so I knew that adding no bake cheesecake to my favorite apple pie recipe would be fantastic.
I decided to go the no-bake cheesecake route because I love the texture of a no-bake cheesecake better than baked. I think that comes from my childhood of eating a boxed cheesecake!
Now, even though the cheesecake is no bake and I used apple pie filling (my homemade recipe!), this pie isn’t considered no-bake because I used my all butter pie crust and blind baked it for the crust. I love a good pastry crust with apple pie and the cream cheese filling just adds a delicious creaminess to the recipe.
