Apple Pie Dip with Cinnamon Pie Crust Chips

Apple Pie Dip with Fried Pie Crust Cinnamon Chips

The weather is finally starting to cool in California (and by cool, I mean high 60s, low 70s), but that is good enough for me! I have a theory, starting September 1st is beanie season. I grew up in Vermont, so September is really when it starts to cool down. However, in California, we are still pushing 80-degree weather here, and people kind of look at you like a crazy person when you are wearing a beanie with shorts and a t-shirts. Now that we are in the middle of October, it should be completely acceptable to wear beanies, chunky sweaters and boots.  I am totally ready for a change in wardrobe!


Now something that is completely acceptable in October- Apple Pie. I have a total obsession with Apple Pie filling. I put it on everything. So finally I decided that I wanted a recipe that was just for my filling. Instead of going through the trouble to make a pie, why not save yourself the time and fuss. You can whip together and apple pie filling in less than 20 minutes. You can serve your Apple Pie Dip with fresh pie chips.


Now I deep fried my pie crust and then rolled it in cinnamon sugar. But again, you can save yourself the hassle and bake them as well. These pie chips are also lightly coated in butter and cinnamon sugar. Serve this as an appetizer or as a dessert. Better yet, why share at all? Now I usually like to make my apple filling with maple syrup because I love the caramelized texture, plus it helps make the apples extra soft.
