Caramel Apple Pie

If you are looking for a nice dessert this weekend, this is a great choice. You can use that jar of caramel sauce that has been sitting in your pantry! It gives your home a wonderful aroma while baking and is so delicious.

Apple Caramel Pie
1 single-crust pie dough
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 dash nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt
6 cups apples, peeled and sliced thinly
1/3 cup caramel ice cream topping
2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup butter
Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
Line a pie dish with a single crust pie dough. Set aside.
For the pie base:
In a large bowl, stir together the brown sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Add the apples and toss until coated.
For the pie topping: Stir together the brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour and oats.
With a fork, your fingers, or a pastry blender, add in the butter until it is in coarse crumbs.
Evenly place the apples into the pie shell.
Sprinkle the crumb topping over the apples.
Drape a piece of aluminum foil over the pie (to prevent burning). Place in the oven for 25 minutes.
Remove the foil and bake for 30 minutes, until top is golden brown.
Remove from oven and drizzle with caramel sauce. Cool on a wire rack.

  2. Oh Linda...This looks sooo yummy! My daughter made the one that was on Southern Living magazine's cover back in September, I think. It was also pretty and tasted so good! She has one of those litle machines that peels, cores and slices the apples all in one step. I had never seen one and was amazed! Have a great weekend!...Debbie
