Fresh Apple Pie Dip
This fresh apple pie dip is perfect for dessert, an afternoon snack, tea parties, used as a pie filling or topping your favorite ice cream with! Great for the holidays.
I hope everyone had a wonderful long Labor Day weekend! Long weekends are the greatest thing known to man, aren’t they? That one extra day off just make a world of difference. I could really get used to that! Now that it’s the “official end of summer”, let’s talk about this fresh apple pie dip.
This dip version of apple pie is as scrumptious as it sounds. I love all things Fall, but most of all, I love all things Fall that are food-related. So when I came across a recipe for apple pie dip, I thought “what a clever idea!” Earlier in this fall season, I usually start craving pumpkin something bad, because that is always the base for most ALL of my fall desserts. Now it has turned to apple!
If you’re making this apple dip for a larger crowd, definitely double the recipe. I made in on a night we were just having a few friends over for dessert, hot apple cider, and a campfire and it was the perfect amount of dip. The only time-consuming part of this recipe was the apples: peeling, coring and cutting the apples is kind of a pain, but totally worth it in the end. I have an apple peeler with a vacuum base that makes my life a LOT easier. I highly recommend buying one if you bake a lot with apples! I found mine at an estate sale for $2 and the box was never even opened!
This apple dip would make a great pie filling, ice cream topping… or even yogurt topping. I’m definitely adding it to my Thanksgiving appetizer list!
If you’re diving into all things apple, you will love my Cinnamon Apple Pie Bread. Baking this bread makes your house smell amazing! Also, the pictures don’t do it justice, but this is the best apple crisp you will ever have. I’m also all about this Dutch Apple Pie from my friend Michelle. Enjoy!
- 2 cups peeled, cored, and diced apples (I used this apple peeler)
- 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 3 tbsp brown sugar
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp cornstarch dissolved in 1 tsp water
- You can either cook this on the stove-top or the microwave.
- Combine all the dip ingredients in a small pan/ microwaveable bowl except the cornstarch-water mixture.
- Heat for a few minutes until it’s boiling and has extracted juice from the apple.
- Add cornstarch-water mixture to the “sauce”
- Put back in the microwave/stove top until boiling and the sauce has thickened.
- Set aside. You can serve this warm or chilled. It doesn’t matter. It will taste delicious.
- Sprinkle a little more cinnamon on top right before serving (optional, but looks nice).
- Serve with cinnamon-sugar pita chips!
