Caramel apple pie recipe
Adapted from allrecipes
- 2 (9 inch) pie shells
- 5 Granny Smith apples, cored and thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup homemade or jarred caramel
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 9-inch pie pan with nonstick cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, add the apples, 2 tablespoons of flour and brown sugar, tossing well.
- Unfold the pie crust and gently press one into the pie pan covering the bottom and sides. Sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons of flour over the bottom of the pie crust and pour in the apple mixture spreading the apples evenly in the pie pan.
- Pour the caramel sauce over the tops of the apples and top with remaining pie crust. Fold the crust over the edges and press firmly with fingers to create a seal. With a fork, poke a few holes in the top of the pie to help steam escape while baking.
- Bake the pie for about 45 minutes or until the top of the pie is a rich golden brown. Allow to cool and serve.
