All of the flavors you crave from a gooey apple pie, but in an easy-to-make, highly shareable format.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium until browned and crisp, 8 to 10 minutes; transfer to paper towels to drain. Crumble bacon, and set aside. Reserve 2 tablespoons bacon drippings in skillet.
Stir together pecans and melted butter on a small rimmed baking sheet; spread in a single layer. Bake in preheated oven until toasted and fragrant, 12 to 14 minutes, stirring halfway through. Remove pecans from oven; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and let cool on baking sheet.
Place cranberries in a small microwavable bowl, and stir in bourbon. Microwave on HIGH until hot, 20 to 30 seconds. Let stand until cool; drain, and pat dry with paper towels.
Heat reserved 2 tablespoons bacon drippings over medium-high; add apples and brown sugar, and cook, stirring often, until apples have softened and turned golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt.
Increase oven temperature to broil. Place pita chips on an oven safe platter or tray. Spoon apples evenly over chips, and sprinkle evenly with cheese. Broil until cheese is melted and just beginning to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from oven; sprinkle with bacon, pecans, and cranberries. Serve immediately.
