I love fall for so many reasons, but one of them is PIE! Apple Pie (YES to apple season). Pumpkin Pie. Pecan Pie. All of them! I set out on a little recipe adventure to turn apple pie into a dip that’s perfect for serving at Friendsgiving, Thanksgiving, fall parties, you name it!
After a few testing batches, I am so excited to share this caramel apple pie cheesecake dip. It tastes like you’re eating a delicious combination of caramel apples + apple pie + cheesecake all at the same time. Truly heavenly…

The best part? This dessert dip doesn’t require a lot of ingredients making it a simple to pull together for last-minute gatherings! I’m going to include this one in my Thanksgiving dessert spread this year, my husband has already declared it one of his favorite recipes on the blog!

Caramel Apple Pie Cheesecake Dip Tips
- Use a deep dish pie plate as your serving dish for this dip, it’s the perfect size!
- Toast your pecans, it gives them an extra nutty flavor that pairs so well with the caramel and apples.
- Feel free to make your own homemade apple pie filling if you like! In a pinch? Just grab a can of apple pie filling and slice the apples into smaller pieces.
- You can also make your own caramel sauce or buy store-bought. I do recommend getting the thicker caramel sauce (often found in the produce section by the apples, Marzetti’s is the brand I used) for a richer flavor.
- Want to jazz up this dip even more or add crunch without nuts? Top it with toffee bits for extra crunch!

Make-Ahead Tips & Storage
If you want to make this dip in advance, just keep it tightly covered in the refrigerator until ready to serve. For best results, I recommend waiting to add the toasted pecans when ready to serve so they don’t soften in the refrigerator.
Tightly cover and store leftovers leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. This dip is delicious served straight from the fridge cold or at room temperature.
