Carmel Apple Pie
All the delicious flavors of a favorite fall treat, in a pie. No stick necessary!
-Here's a new twist on the old Apple Pie. Try a Caramel Apple Pie, no stick necessary. Caramel apples are definitely a fall favorite, and this pie puts all those flavors together in a whole new way. First off, your crust. Now, you can make your own crust with one of the recipes from bhg.com, or just use one of these rolled refrigerator crusts. Now, since this is a 1--crust pie. I'm gonna finish the edge before we fill it. Now, we get a delicious crumb topping. I've already mixed together some brown sugar, some rolled oats and flour. And now, I'm just gonna cut in some cold butter. Work in that butter 'til you get a nice, coarse consistency just like this. Okay. Then, you'll set this aside and get your oven pre-heated to 375. And now, we can work on our apples. I have 6 cups of peeled, thinly-sliced cooking apples, and then in here some flour, sugar, cinnamon and just a pinch of salt. So now, put our apples in there and toss that with this mixture. And now, we can fill them in the pie plate. Looks good to me. And now, our crumb topping comes back. Just sprinkle that right over the top. Look at these luscious, luscious crumbs. To keep the edges from over-browning, I have a really great trick for you. Take a piece of foil and fold it in half. Then, fold it in half again. Tear out the middle, open it up, and drape it right over your pie crust because then, it protects the edges. So you're thinking, this is a pretty traditional apple pie, right? Well, get ready because there's a twist. When the pie comes out of the oven, they get sprinkled with chopped pecans. I think about a a cup should do it. It looks good. And then, a drizzle of caramel ice cream topping. I'm using about a of a cup, but if you really like that flavor, you can sneak in a little more. Gorgeous. Let that cool on a wire rack, and then you're ready to dig in. Just like a Caramel Apple, but much easier to eat.
