Chilling Time8 hr

Cooking Vessel Size9x13-inch serving dish


Make Ahead RecipeYes


  • Apple Mixture
  • 2 pounds apples
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Cream Cheese Mixture
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons caramel sauce
  • Other Ingredients
  • 1 (11-ounce) package vanilla wafer cookies, as needed
  • 1 pound container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1/2 cup caramel sauce
  • 1/2 cup pecans


  1. Core and chop apples into 1-inch size pieces. Place apples into a small saucepan and toss with the flour, sugar, and spices. Add the lemon juice and syrup and toss again. Place over medium high heat and cook, stirring from time to time until apples are bubbling and have softened (about 18 minutes). 

  2. Remove from pan and place into the refrigerator for 10 minutes while preparing the next mixtures.

  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese, sugars, vanilla, and cinnamon. With the machine running, beat in the whipping cream for 2 minutes. Stir in the caramel sauce and set aside.

  4. In a 9x13-inch serving dish, place a layer of vanilla wafer cookies, breaking a few as necessary to completely cover the entire bottom of the dish. Spoon one-third of the cream cheese mixture on top and smooth to cover completely. Top with one-third of the apple mixture, distributing evenly. Repeat this layering. Add whipped topping. Spread Evenly.

  5. Drizzle the caramel sauce over the top and sprinkle with the pecans. Cover lightly with plastic wrap and set in the refrigerator for 8 hours or more so that the mixtures soften the graham crackers. Serve while cold.

This was amazing. It FLEW out of the serving tray at Thanksgiving this year

I really wish I had a need for a recipe of this magnitude. I mean this is an impressive dessert and it needs to be shared with the world. My cousin usually is the dessert queen during Thanksgiving but I think I will bring this dish along. We may have a standoff.

Apple Pie Lasagna? OK. So the pie is assembled like lasagna. I have to admit the picture provided certainly makes me want to prepare this. However, I am one of those lazy cooks and the recipe sounds like a lot of work. I will have to file this one away to save to make when I really want to impress someone.

What an interesting idea! I like layered desserts and this is a fascinating variation. I think I encountered something similar using bananas rather than apples, but this apple and cinnamon take looks equally appealing. I'd also swap walnuts for pecans in this, but I'm sure either variety of nuts would work well. I'd be interested in trying this with some of the Marias cookies in place of the vanilla wafers.

Now, this is my version of what lasagna should be like...and although I absolutely love traditional baked apple recipes it's truly refreshing to see a dessert where the apples aren't cooked at all and the rest of the ingredients are only there to compliment them allowing for a plethora of flavors and textures. The only thing I think I'd do a little different is to substitute the pecans for walnuts...everything else is perfect just as it is!
