Apple Pie Dip is delicious with all the classic fall flavors in one bowl! Dip homemade cinnamon sugar tortillas in sweet cinnamon apples!
My favorite fruity dessert is definitely strawberry cheesecake, but it takes so long to make! This Apple Pie Dip with cinnamon chips tackles my sweet tooth with minimum effort. Make it ahead of time for a simple fall dessert or yummy after-school snack.
HURRAY FOR APPLE SEASON!
My grandmother made the best baked cinnamon apples when I was growing up. It’s such a simple dish, but it’s so comforting, too. This dip is a bit thicker than what she used to make and has a few extra ingredients but paired with some simple cinnamon sugar tortilla chips and you have a delicious fall snack!
This apple pie dip recipe is so easy and has just a few basic ingredients. My kids start asking for it every time we go apple picking because it’s a sweet treat that’s a little healthy, too. Best of both worlds in my kitchen!
More Dessert Dips to Try
- Peanut Butter Dip: My kids LOVE dipping apple slices, graham crackers, and even banana into this dip. It’s an after school favorite.
- Cherry Cheesecake Dip: No bake and oh my goodness SO delicious! We call it a dip just to have an excuse to eat cheesecake before dinner.

APPLES: You can use your favorite apples here! And it doesn’t have to just be one type. Honeycrisp, Pink Lady, Gala, or Granny Smith apples are great options for cooking and baking.
CINNAMON CHIPS: You can make your own homemade cinnamon tortilla chips any time with just a flour tortilla, butter, and cinnamon sugar. Just season and bake for the best fall dipper.
FLOUR: The flour helps thicken this apple dip to the perfect consistency. Don’t forget to dissolve the flour in water first so there are no flour clumps in your apple pie dip.
How to Make Apple Pie Dip
STEP ONE: Bring the diced apples, brown sugar, lemon juice, and ground cinnamon to a boil in a medium saucepan. Let it simmer a few minutes, and keep stirring!
STEP TWO: When the apple mixture begins to thicken, add the flour slurry and simmer for a few more minutes. Remove from the heat and let the dip cool.
STEP THREE: Make the cinnamon sugar chips by spreading a little butter on a tortilla and then top it with cinnamon sugar. Cut the tortilla into wedges, place on a baking sheet, and bake until golden brown and crunchy. It’s that easy!
Tips for Success
- The dip will thicken more as it cools. You can let it cool in the saucepan before transfering the dip to a serving bowl if you like.
- If you don’t have flour on hand, you could also use cornstarch for the thickening slurry.
- You can amke as many cinnamon sugar tortilla chips as you like, or even cut them into smaller pieces to you have more for dipping.
- You could also pair this with graham crackers, too! I personally love how simple these apple pie dip and cinnamon sugar tortilla chips are to make for a fall dessert or afternoon snack.
