Apple Pie Dip

Sweet dips hold a special place in my tummy heart. My brownie batter dip was the first really successful post I ever had. And I think you always look back on your first successful post fondly, kind of the way you remember your first love.
Because that’s when you really start to love blogging. At least that’s how it worked for me.

It’s not as vain as it sounds, I promise. It’s just that once you get a taste of it– once you feel the rush that comes from seeing lots of total and complete strangers commenting on your blog and pinning your stuff, you start thinking: “hey! I can do this!”
And before you know it, it’s a thrill to find new photography tips to try, and you’re waking up in the middle of the night writing down a new recipe to try tomorrow, and you’re learning all about the best times to post to your different social media pages… and you’re completely smitten with blogging.
That’s where sweet dips have brought me, and that’s why I love them so much.
Oh, plus– they taste amazing. Here are some of my family’s favorites:

And I’m really excited to share another crowd pleasing sweet dip with you today: Apple Pie Dip! Perfect for Fall entertaining… or eating alone in your sweats. Whatevs.

Apple Pie Dip
Ingredients:
  • 4 medium apples, peeled, cored, and diced into small pieces
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1/4 c. brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp. flour
  • 1/2 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tbsp. nutmeg
  • 2 pre-made pie crusts
Directions:
  1. Melt the butter over low in a medium saucepan.
  2. Toss in the apples,  and stir to coat.
  3. Mix in the sugar, the brown sugar, the flour, the cinnamon, and the nutmeg. Stir, stir, stir until everything is smooth and well mixed. If the mixture looks to dry, add another tablespoon or two of butter– but just know that the mixture will get a little “wetter” as the apples continue to cook.
  4. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring often, until apples reach desired softness. Quick tip: If you like your apples really soft, trying microwaving them in a ziptop bag for 1 minute before tossing them in the saucepan. That will help speed up the process and ensure that your apples are plenty soft!
  5. Meanwhile, use a cookie cutter to cut out pie crust rounds. Bake at 400º for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
  6. Serve the dip in individual bowls or in one big bowl, using the pie crust rounds as dippers!
