I love everything about fall...the crisp, cool weather, pumpkins, changing colors on the trees, cozy sweaters, sitting by the fire with hot chocolate, not to mention the baking possibilities--pies and crisps (like the peach and raspberry crisp in my fridge, ready to be baked...yum!), pumpkin muffins and cookies, anything with cinnamon ;)...then there's caramel apples and cheesecake--or both of those combined in one stunning, delicious pie.
When I saw this pie on the Annie's Eats blog, I immediately printed it to add to my 'Need To Try' pile of recipes (that never seems to stop growing!). When we decided to do a 5 course meal for my in-law's 45th anniversary, I claimed dessert and knew this pie would be the perfect end to a fantastic dinner! Although it was a bit of work to get together, it was definitely worth every minute. This pie had everything...a nice, crisp graham crust covered in caramel, then topped with sweet, cinnamon-ey apples. On top of the apples was a simple, yet rich cheesecake layer; to top the cake off, there was a layer of whipped cream marbled with caramel sauce and sprinkled with pecans. Need I say more?!
Here's the recipe:

Have a great weekend!
