  • Let your cream cheese sit out at room temperature before beating to prevent clumps in this no bake apple cheesecake salad.  
  • Whipped topping is another name for Cool Whip.  Use fat free Cool Whip if desired. 
  • Keep some apple pie filling in the pantry for recipes like this one. 
  • Be sure to tightly cover this apple cheesecake fluff with a lid or tight fitting plastic wrap, and refrigerate for a minimum of 24 hours to let all the flavors develop.
