Caramel Apple Pie
Ingredients
  • 1 1/4  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/3  cup  shortening
  • 4 - 5  tablespoons  cold water
  • 1  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 1/2  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1/2  cup  quick rolled oats
  • 1/2  cup  butter or margarine
  • 1/2  cup  sugar
  • 3  tablespoons  all-purpose flour
  • 1  teaspoon  ground cinnamon
  • 1/8  teaspoon  salt
  • 6  cups  thinly sliced peeled cooking apples
  • 1/2  cup  chopped pecans
  • 1/4  cup  caramel ice cream topping
Directions

1. For the pastry, in a bowl stir together 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until pieces are pea-size. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of water over part of the flour mixture, tossing with a fork until all dough is moistened. Prepare using 1 tablespoon of water at a time, until flour mixture is moistened. Form dough into a ball; set aside.

2. For the crumb topping, stir together brown sugar, 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, and oats. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter or margarine until the topping mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.

3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to a 12-inch circle. Transfer pastry to a 9-inch pie plate. Ease pastry into pie plate, being careful not to stretch pastry. Trim; crimp edge as desired.

4. In a large mixing bowl stir together sugar, 3 tablespoons flour cinnamon, and salt. Add apple slices and gently toss until coated. Transfer apple mixture to the pastry-lined pie plate. Sprinkle crumb topping over apple mixture.

5. To prevent over browning, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes more or until top is golden. Remove from oven; sprinkle pie with pecans, then drizzle with caramel topping. Cool on a wire rack. Makes 8 servings.
