Hey guys! I am kicking off apple week here on Beyond Frosting. I am pretty excited to be blogging during the fall season this year. I wrote my first post on Beyond Frosting on October 31st, 2012, so I am about a month and a half away from my one year blogiversary! Fall is my favorite season. Growing up in Vermont, it meant cooler days, changing leaves and the start of apple season. As a kid, I loved going to pick apples. They give you this long rake-like things with a bag attached to catch the apples off the trees. You run through line after line of apple trees while towing a wagon with dozens of apples that would turn into something yummy!
Today’s something yummy is Apple Pie Lasagna. This is insanely addicting. Just last week, I posted Pumpkin Pie Lasagna, and normally I would not post two similar recipes so close together, but the fact that these two desserts were some of best recipes that I think I have made in a long long time, I just couldn’t help myself. This dessert is really easy to put together and doesn’t require you to turn on the oven, meaning that is it NO-BAKE!
I love apple pie filling, so I cooked mine on the stovetop, but you could use a can of pie filling if you choose. This is my go-to stovetop stovetop apple pie filling, which I use time and time again. It’s best to make the apple pie filling in advance so it can col completely.
The Apple Pie Lasagna consists of layers of graham cracker, a caramel brown sugar cream cheese, apple pie filling, whipped cream and chocolate toffee pieces. The caramel brown sugar cream cheese is to die for, I could shovel it in my mouth by the spoonful. I’m not saying that I did that or not, but I am just saying that you COULD. I love the chocolate toffee bites because it adds in a little bit of crunch with every bite.
I used a deep dish 9×9” pan for this recipe, it was 3-inches deep and the filling came over the top. Therefore I do recommend that you make it in a 9-inch by 13-inch pan, which I have done time and time again. Don’t wait for fall, this dessert is good ALL year long!

- 5-6 medium apples, peeled and sliced.
- Juice from1 lemon
- 2 tbsp All-purpose flour
- ½ C Packed light brown sugar
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- ½ tsp Apple pie spice
- 2 tbsp Maple syrup
- 8 oz Cream cheese, softened
- 1 C Powdered sugar
- 2 tbsp Brown sugar
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- ½ C Heavy Cream
- ½ tsp Pure vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp Caramel
- 8 oz Cool Whip
- 2-3 pkg Graham Crackers
- 8 oz Cool Whip.
- 1 C Heath milk chocolate toffee bites
- Peel and slice your apples into small pieces; about the size of a dime. Place in a medium size saucepan. Squeeze the juice from a whole lemon over the apples.
- Add all of your dry ingredients: flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and apple pie spice. Mix all ingredients well and then add maple syrup.
- Using a saucepan on medium-high heat, cook the apples for about 15-18 minutes until they begin to brown and bubble. Remove from heat and cool completely. Refrigerate if necessary.
- While the pie filling is cooking, prepare the cream cheese filling. Allow cream cheese to come to room temperature, or soften in the microwave for 15 seconds.
- Beat cream cheese on medium-high speed with a wire whisk attachment until light and fluffy. Turn off mixer and add dry ingredients: powered sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon. Beat into cream cheese.
- Add heavy whipping cream and vanilla extract. Beat on medium-high speed until whipping cream is fully mixed into cream cheese. Add caramel sauce last and mix into batter.
- Add cool whip and beat on medium speed until mixture is well combined. Divide into thirds.
- Cover the bottom of a 9-inch by 13-inhc pan with graham crackers. You can break the crackers into pieces in order to get into the nooks and crannies.
- Cover the graham crackers with a layer of the cream cheese batter and spread evenly. Spoon half of the apple pie filling over cream cheese and gently press into the mouse. Add a small handful of toffee chips on top. Repeat this twice so that you end up with three layers of mousse, 3 layers of graham crackers and 2 layers of apple pie filling. The top layer will be mousse.
- Cover the top layer of Cool Whip with additional toffee bites and drizzle with caramel.
- I suggest to allow at least two hours in the fridge for the graham crackers to soften. Store in an air tight container and keep refrigerated. Best served cold.
