Apple Pie Dip - Mother Thyme

I know its not fall yet, but I’m ready.  Some of the leaves on the trees have already started changing color and the pumpkins in our garden are just about orange.  Before we know it the temperatures will drop and fall will be in the air. 

With fall comes apple picking, hayrides, apple cider, and my favorite apple pie.  What’s better than apple pie with a flaky, buttery crust and a streusel topping?  Apple Pie Dip.  All the yummy flavors of your favorite apple pie in a dip form.  Serve with cinnamon pita chips, nilla wafers, or bake a few pre-made pie crusts an cut them into “chips” for a tasty dip that is great for all your fall weekend get togethers. 

This Apple Pie Dip includes a creamy layer of cream cheese whipped with sugar, yogurt and a touch of cinnamon that is spread in a pie dish.  It is topped with crisp Granny Smith apples tossed with cinnamon and sugar.  Bake for about 20 minutes until hot and bubbly and the apples are just tender.  I totally suggest drizzling this with caramel topping if you have some on hand.  Serve warm for a hot apple pie dip, but its just as good cold.  I admit I have found myself diving into this in the refrigerator with just a spoon.  Once you try this, I’m sure you will be too.

      Hi Becky, To make cinnamon pita chips, take a flour tortilla and cut it into wedges, kind of like if you were cutting a pizza. In a shallow bowl combine some sugar and cinnamon. Toss the wedges in the cinnamon sugar mixture and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes in a 350 degree oven until nice and crispy. Enjoy!

    Sounds great, especially when combined with pie crust, but how would you make pie crust chips sturdy enough not to break off/up while dipping? Just cutting premade pie crust dough into chip shapes and baking feels like they’d be too flaky/delicate.

    Just wondering, any takes on whether or not this dip would be successful made in a crock pot rather than baked? Love being able to take things places in crock pots! :)
