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.

Ingredients in Cheesecake Apple Pie

The Crust: I used my all butter pie crust recipe. When you’re making your crust, be sure to use Challenge Unsalted Butter. It’s the best tasting butter and will make your crust the best tasting it can be. I also blind baked my crust, which we talked about at length here.

No-bake cheesecake filling is made with Challenge Cream Cheese. I especially love using challenge cream cheese because it’s smoother creamier than other brands and mixes into a creamy cheesecake much easier.

  • Cream Cheese
  • Sugar
  • Vanilla
  • Whipped Topping

Apple Pie Filling: homemade apple pie filling. This time of year I make my apple pie filling almost weekly for some sort of recipe!

How to make Apple Pie Cheesecake

1. Make the Crust: Blind bake the crust and let it cool.

2. Make the Cheesecake Filling: Mix cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla with a hand mixer until smooth. Fold in cool whip. Spread in cooled pie crust.

3. Finisher: Top with apple pie filling.

4. Chill: Chill at least 1 hour before cutting and serving.
