A Sugar Cookie Apple Crumble Cheesecake Pie that’s both rich and flavorful. Take a moment and think – a crumbled, sugar cookie topping, spread over a sweet and juicy, layer homemade apple pie filling, that sits atop a tangy cream cheese filling and a thin, buttery sugar cookie crust. WHAT THA’ WHAT?!

If I’m not mistaken, I do believe this is my first post for the New Year, 2018. So, Happy Belated New Year (9 days in…)! Better late than never right?!

First off, I’m breaking my own self-imposed restriction by making a pie in January. As you may or MAY NOT know, pies are heavy (or HEAVIER) in-demand during the holidays (November and December) and hence I was quite busy both making at DEVOURING copious amounts of pie. Both of my own hand and from others! I had therefor imposed a 30 day ban on myself, from eating pie, in order to give my poor body some reprieve.

I made it NINE DAYS! LOL!

What can I say… I’m a statistic for having broken one of my New Year resolutions, but I have a good excuse why!

Sugar Cookie Apple Crumble Cheesecake Pie

The Sugar Cookie Apple Crumble Cheesecake Pie recipe is based on Averie’s wonderful creativity over at AverieCooks.com, with some slight modifications – notably of which, making our own applie pie filling rather than using a canned filling. Well, do you want to be a PIE BAKER, and make it ALL (or, MOST) from scratch or do ya?!

Other than being a very much, unique pie recipe, I’m not sure why I felt compelled to break my solemn vow to the New Year Resolution Gods.

Maybe it was because I had made so many delicious and well-received, Cranberry Apple Crumbles during the holidays, that another crumble seemed logical? Or maybe even the notion of making something combining both cheesecake and an apple crumble peaked my interest? whatever the reason, when I came upon Averie’s recipe, I just knew I had to make it, and sooner rather than later! Bye bye New Year Resolution! See ya in 2019!

Not gonna lie, I do appreciate pie recipes with relatively short ingredient lists OR that use fairly common ingredients. In other words, ingredients that are typically used in a variety of other pies. Averie’s recipe is just such a recipe, using sugar, flour, butter, vanilla, cinnamon…you get the gist.

Using commonly used pie ingredients insures that I will most likely have most of the required ingredients on-hand, saving both TIME and MONEY! Both good things to save on eh?

For the MOST part, I followed along with the Sugar Cookie Apple Crumble Cheesecake Pie recipe with the exception for the apple pie filling. Instead of purchasing a can of this, I elected to venture out and try making this myself! We are, of course… PIONEERING PIE MAKERS are we not?!

For this, since I have never personally done this, I settled on a simple ‘Homemade Apple Pie Filling‘ recipe by Dorothy over at Crazy for Crust.

Again, another recipe using commonly used pie ingredients, that I was able to whip out and have sitting and waiting for the rest of the ‘pie project’ to catch up!

I’m not going to post the recipe or steps here, as that would be disingenuous to the work and effort put in by both Averie at AverieCooks.com and Dorothy at CrazyForCrust.com to share these recipes. So, please click on the links and venture there to grab the recipes, but be sure to return!!

I will close in just saying this, however. Maybe its the fact that I’m on a ‘CRUMBLE’ tear right now, but the sugar cookie crumble recipe on this dish is one of the best crumbles I’ve had to date! Not kidding! It has such a different but delicious taste, that I can’t help but to think how this would taste on other crumble dishes? Definitely something I look forward to experimenting with.
