Caramel Apple Oatmeal Cookie Cheesecake Pie

Caramel Apple Oatmeal Cookie Cheesecake Pie Recipe l www.a-kitchen-addiction.com

Caramel apple, maple apple, peanut butter apple. . .you name it, we’ve had it recently. Fall apples are starting to overtake our counters and fridge. We haven’t even gone apple picking, and I’ve still managed to scoop up all kinds of varieties while at the store.

Fall apples have such a great flavor compared to apples any other time of year, so I try to enjoy them as much as possible. As you can imagine, we can’t eat them all plain.

So, I have to get creative with ways to use them up other than apple crisp (though that isn’t a bad thing!).

This caramel apple oatmeal cookie cheesecake pie was one way to showcase the apples that wasn’t your ordinary pie or crisp. The cheesecake pie starts with a crust that tastes just like an oatmeal cookie. Chewy, nutty, and sweet. . .everything good about an oatmeal cookie.

The cheesecake base is light and fluffy with just the right balance between the tang of the cream cheese and the sweetness of the sugar. It’s a no bake cheesecake which works well with the warm days we’ve been having as summer winds down.

Finely chopped apples are stirred in and their juices spread throughout the cheesecake as it sets up.

A homemade caramel layer is hidden between the oatmeal cookie crust and the cheesecake. Rich, buttery, and sweet, this caramel layer gives the cheesecake a light caramel apple flavor.

The caramel makes enough to have plenty left to drizzle either over the entire cheesecake or individual pieces right before serving and ties all of the flavors of the pie together. Or you can drizzle it on ice cream, in coffee, on pumpkin pancakes. . .it’s good stuff!

I wouldn’t judge if you skipped the cheesecake and went straight to the caramel!

I have made this pie several times. Everyone loves,it. I am making it for,Christmas this year. I don t want to take the time to make the Carmel. So many other things to do. Do you think a jar of Carmel would be ok to use on the crust/drizzle? Never tried,it

What does 12oz 1/3 of the fat cream cheese mean? How much cream cheese do I use??? Sorry...but this doesn't make sense to me. Really want to try this pie...but don't want to mess it up.

thanks!

You use 12 ounces of 1/3 of the fat (also called neufchatel) cream cheese. Full fat cream cheese works just fine, too!
