Quick Crowd-Pleasing Thanksgiving Appetizer: Apple Pie Dip Recipe

Disclosure 1

I’m a big believer in appetizers being simple and quick to prepare – especially on Thanksgiving when I am already spending several days before cooking and cleaning and getting everything just right in preparation for the big day. So today I wanted to share with you a to.die.for appetizer that is easy and quick to prepare, but is also a crowd-pleaser.  Hot Apple Pie Dip served with Triscuit and/or Wheat Thins crackers.


You guys. This dip is FALL on a plate. It is creamy and filled with apples and pecans and spices. The melted cheddar cheese on top makes it a little bit sweet/salty. And…it is served warm.


Total rustic, comfort food while still being an elegant dish perfect for the holidays. It is also an easy recipe to double or triple if you have are expecting a full house on Thanksgiving.
