No-Bake Apple Yum Yum is an easy four layer dessert of graham crackers, apple pie filling, sweetened cream cheese and whipped topping!
NO BAKE APPLE YUM YUM
CAN I USE COOL WHIP INSTEAD OF A HOMEMADE WHIPPED CREAM?
Of course! I am making a homemade whipped cream here. You can substitute the heavy whipping cream, 3 tbsp. sugar and ½ tsp. vanilla extract with one (8 oz.) tub of COOL WHIP, thawed.
CAN I USE OTHER PIE FILLING FLAVORS BESIDES APPLE?
HOW TO MAKE APPLE YUM YUM:
Spread the rest of the crumbs into a 9x9 baking dish. Push down with your hands to make a flat layer.
In a separate bowl (to make the whipped cream), combine the heavy whipping cream, 3 tbsp. sugar and vanilla extract. Using a stand or electric mixer, whip it until stiff peaks form (using the whisk attachment.) You can skip this if you are using COOL WHIP. This will take a minute or two on a high speed setting.

NO-BAKE APPLE YUM YUM
- 1 ½ cups cinnamon graham cracker crumbs
- 6 tbsp salted butter melted
- 1 (8 oz) block cream cheese softened
- ½ cup (+ 3 tbsp.) granulated sugar, divided use
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream (1 pint)
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 1 (21 oz) can apple pie filling
- In a medium bowl, combine melted butter with graham cracker crumbs.
- Set aside 2 tbsp. of the crumbs (for the topping.)
- Spread the rest of the crumbs into a 9 x 9 baking dish.
- Push down to make a flat layer.
- Next, combine softened cream cheese with ½ cup sugar with an electric mixer. Set this bowl aside.
- In a separate bowl (to make the whipped cream), combine the heavy whipping cream, 3 tbsp. sugar and vanilla extract. (You can skip these two steps if you are using COOL WHIP.)
- Using a stand or electric mixer, whip it until stiff peaks form.
- Combine the cream cheese mixture with the whipped cream, by hand, until combined well.
- Spread half of the cream cheese/whipped cream mixture evenly over crust.
- Open can of apple pie filling. Take a knife and slice apples inside the can. Go back and forth in a slicing motion to create smaller chunks of apples.
- Evenly spread the apple pie filling over the whipped cream layer.
- Finally, top with the remaining cream cheese/whipped cream mixture. Spread evenly.
- Top with reserved graham cracker crumbs.
- Refrigerate for a couple hours (or overnight) before slicing and serving.
- You can substitute the heavy whipping cream, 3 tbsp. sugar and ½ tsp. vanilla extract with one (8 oz.) tub of COOL WHIP, thawed.
- For a kicked-up cinnamon flavor - add about a teaspoon of cinnamon to the graham cracker crumbs. Alternatively, if you want to purchase graham crackers that are already crushed - just add a teaspoon of ground cinnamon to the mixture.
