Caramel Apple Cream Cheese Pie

by Milisa on November 14, 2012

Caramel Apple Cream Cheese Pie is a the pie I’m looking forward to the most at Thanksgiving!  Don’t get me wrong, I love pumpkin pie but bring on the cheesecake or cream cheese pie those are really my favorites.

This pie can be made the day before, actually it is better the second day.  Perfect for Thanksgiving wouldn’t you say?  I really wasn’t sure if I should call this a cheesecake or a cream cheese pie. Technically it is baked but I made it into a pie plate so, I went with pie. Either way it is what I call delicious!

Super simple to put together and I love the fall flavors of caramel and apples and I added toffee bits for a little extra crunch. This is definitely a pie that will become a must-have for holiday celebrations. The whole family loved it. There may have been a little fussing over the last piece!

I’m really looking forward to the kids being out of school for Thanksgiving break and having a nice and quiet Thanksgiving.  I think we are even going to have mild weather.  So much better than the 4 degrees we had the other night!

Now I would love to hear about your favorite Thanksgiving desserts.  Are you all about the pumpkin pie or is it something less traditional?

I love chesecake but I rarely make it cause it takes so long and makes so much. Love this as a pie cause I feel like it’s less work and food!

Wow, this looks delicious! Unfortunately around here, I’m the only one with a sweet tooth… so our Thanksgiving sweets the past couple of years have been lacking. I’ll make this just for myself ;)

Oh my, this sounds soooooo good! Especially since I’ve been craving cheesecake lately, and need to use up my fall apple pickings… {and thank you so much for the Pumpkin Layer Cake love}
