Fall is apple picking time. Using all those apples to make apple pie is a wonderful American tradition.
Walking in to the house on a crisp autumn day and smelling those pies cooking is such an awesome feeling.
Old World Garden Farms has added a little twist to the classic apple pie by adding caramel.
They claim “This is one of the easiest apple pies to make. It doesn’t require lemon juice, dabs of butter to be applied to the top of the apples or even an egg wash. Just mix your ingredients, pour your apples into the pie crust and top! ”
Imagine the flavor caramel drizzled apples as dive into a piece of this wonderful treat.
One of the tricks they have for making this dessert easier is…
Using an apple corer and slicer makes easy work of preparing the apples.
Here is their recipe for this great creation.
Caramel Apple Pie Recipe
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- A pinch of salt
- 5 apples (3 Granny Smith, 2 Honey Crisp) peeled, cored and sliced
- Pie Crust – double crust
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
- Combine butter, white sugar, brown sugar, water, cinnamon, and salt in a small saucepan over medium heat stirring constantly. Bring up to a boil and then immediately remove from heat and set aside.
- Roll out half the pie crust to fit a 9-inch pie plate. Place bottom crust in pie plate and pour in apple slices.
- Roll out top crust into a 10-inch circle. Cut into 8, one inch wide strips with a sharp paring knife or pizza cutter. Weave the strips, one at a time, into a lattice pattern. Fold the ends of the lattice strips behind the edge of the bottom crust and crimp to seal.
- Pour the mixture over top of the pie, coating the lattice, and allowing any remaining sauce to drizzle through the crust.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F, and bake until the crust is golden brown and the apple filling is bubbling (35 to 40 minutes).
Allow to cool before slicing to allow the filling to firm up.
