No-Bake Oatmeal Apple Pie Layered Dessert

Layered no bake desserts are my favorite. They are easy to make, you can feed a crowd with one batch, or bring them to a party or potlucks.

Since the summer is coming to its end, it is perfect time for fall recipes. And fall desserts are all about apples, pumpkins and warm spices. But apples come first, at least on my dessert list.

Apples makes perfect combo with caramel, but with oat and pecans as well. Therefore, I decided to swap the graham cracker crust with oatmeal and pecans. This way you get three desserts in one. It is like no bake oatmeal bars, vanilla cheesecake and apple pie in one pack. A win-win combo for upcoming fall season.

How To Make Homemade Apple Pie Filling

First, make the apple pie filling, because it takes time to cool. When peel and cut the apples, toss with lemon juice to keep them from browning prematurely.

Stir together sugars, cornstarch, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large saucepan. Whisk in water until everything has dissolved. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat slightly and simmer for 2 minutes. Add the apples and increase the heat to medium-high and bring to a boil again. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10-12 minutes until the apples softens and the sauce thickens. Remove the pan from the heat and let the mixture cool to room temperature.

How To Make A No Bake Oatmeal Crust

For this recipe you should use quick cooking oats, not old-fashioned rolled oats. Also you can use toasted pecans, it will taste even better, but if you don’t have time, you can use raw.
Melt butter over medium heat, then stir in brown sugar until dissolved. Add vanilla, cinnamon and pecans and stir until combined.

Turn heat to low and add quick cooking oats. Cook on low for about 2 minutes, or until ingredients are well combined.

Reserve about 1/2 cup of the oat-pecan mixture for sprinkling on top for decoration and press remaining mixture into the bottom of the pan and place in the fridge to firm.

Vanilla Cream Cheese Filling

The filling is very easy to make, especially if you use whipped cream from a tube. Just beat softened butter, cream cheese and vanilla, next add powdered sugar and mix until smooth and creamy, and finally mix in thawed whipped cream. Spread over the crust and chill in the fridge until the apple pie filling is completely cooled to a room temperature. Then using a spoon spread apples over the cream cheese layer and place in the fridge for a few hours.

Finally top with remaining whipped cream, drizzle caramel sauce and swirl into the cream, Garnish with oatmeal pecan crumbs and pecan halves before serving.
