Apple cheesecake pie topped with salted caramel and vanilla ice cream. The perfect fall dessert!

My favorite thing to do this time of year is go apple picking. We went for family night last week, and picked a TON of apples. We’ve been eating them like crazy, making apple sauce and apple chips… and of course making yummy apple desserts, like this one below. This apple pie cheesecake is pure heaven. Imagine apple crisp, pie and cheesecake combined in one! One bite and you’ll be hooked.

How to make apple cheesecake pie

To start out you’re going to make the apple pie filling. I suggest making it the night before, so it has time to set overnight. You can always use a store bought apple filling, but this homemade recipe is so yummy and I definitely recommend trying it.

Next you’ll make your pie crust (or to save time, use a pre-made crust like I did). Then you’ll make the cheesecake filling and top it with the apple pie filling. To top if off you’ll add a cinnamon oatmeal crumb topping. YUM. Find the full recipe below.

For the cheesecake: Beat the cream cheese and sugar until creamy. Add the egg and beat until incorporated. Spread the cheesecake onto the prepared pie crust.

For the crumb topping: Mix together the crumb topping ingredients with a fork.

Gently spoon the apple pie filling on top of the cheesecake filling. Then sprinkle the crumb mixture over the apple pie filling.

Bake for 40 minutes. Remove the pie plate from the oven and place on wire rack. Allow to cool for one hour, then refrigerate until completely chilled and ready to serve. Top with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce if desired.

To turn this into caramel apple pie cheesecake all you need to do is drizzle a little caramel sauce on top. Feel free to make your own or buy the ice cream topping at the store. Oh and don’t forget that scoop of ice cream. Calories don’t count during the holidays, right? ;)Apple cheesecake pie topped with salted caramel and vanilla ice cream. The perfect fall dessert!

    Holy cow! Apple crisp and cheesecake really does sound like a divine combination! My husband grew up in Winchester, Virginia, which is famous for its apples. (He went to Apple Pie Elementary!) I am practically the perfect wife (ha ha!) but I know he wishes I would make apple pie. He would LOVE this Apple Cheesecake Pie!

    Hi, I’ll be making a gluten free pie crust using a combination of white rice flour, potato starch, tapioca flour, and xanthan gum. Can you offer an appropriate substitution for the flour in the crumb topping? Would it be necessary to partially blind bake the crust if making from scratch (rather than store bought)?

      Hi Megan! I am not too familiar with baking gluten free. I have heard of others using Bob’s Red Mill Certified Gluten-Free Rolled Oats and a gluten free flour mix. I think partially blind baking the crust would be a great idea!
