Just a little something extra to warm the change of seasons. Wonderful aroma. Try using one of these varieties: Granny Smith, Spys, Cortlands, or Pippins.

  • Roll dough out, and cut out two crusts. Line a pie plate with one of the crusts. Spoon filling into the bottom crust, and cover with the top crust. Crimp the edges. Place the pie on a baking sheet covered with foil. Poke fork holes over top. Sprinkle lightly with granulated sugar.

  • Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 50 minutes. If you notice overbrowning after 30 minutes, reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Serve warm, or at room temperature.

I really liked this apple pie and definetly will make it again. I read some reviews where people were having problems with the caramel not melting. I think the trick is depending on what type of caramel you use. Kraft makes caramels that can be eaten as candy or used for baking. You can find them in the candy aisle inside Wal-mart. I mixed all the dry ingredients together first so that it blended evenly with the apples. It came out a little runny but I added a little more flour to thicken it up. My guess was the lemon juice thinned it out quiet a bit. Next time I am going to add the lemon juice to the apples let it soak for a few minutes drain half the excess and then incorporate the dry mixture. Another thing the recipe calls for 6cups of apples. I used Granny Smith and five (2.5 lbs) of them made approx 6cups. Read More

This was disappointing after the great reviews. I cooked it for 15 minutes longer than the recipe stated but the apples still weren't done all the way (I did slice them thinly too). The caramel sauce too was very runny even though I let the pie set up for 4 hours before serving it. Oh well. The taste was good even if it was a mess!:) Read More

Trying this recipe may have been a mistake as I've had to bake one almost every week to fill my family's requests for MORE! I use granny smith apples so I don't decrease the sugar as some recommended and the flavor is perfect. If you use juicy apples a little extra flour will keep the pie from getting runny. Read More

I really should give this five stars because I was the only one who didn't care for it. And that's really just because I don't like apples. I served this to four other people and they LOVED it!! Word to the wise: Definitely stick with the caramel squares and if you can't find any wait until you do. I tried to substitute them with caramel sauce--the kind in the jar--and althought it still tasted delicious it was a HUGE mess to cook. I had to throw out a cookie sheet and clean out my oven (which was in awful need of a cleaning anyway I just needed that extra push to do it! lol) because the sauce basically turned to water and spilled out of the pie. I bought two frozen extra deep pie crusts. I took one and flattened it cut out long strips and criss-crossed them over the top. The pie looked GORGEOUS. It was like something out of a cookbook. People raved about how pretty it was almost as much as they raved about the taste. Excellent desert if you're looking to casually impress. Read More

This pie is now a favorite. Only suggestions are to reduce white sugar by 1 or 2 TBL.(caramel & 2 kinds of sugar made it overly sweet) and also reduce butter to 2 or 3 TBL. Read More

I just made this without the crust baked in a 13x9" pan. My 6 year old told me it tasted like an "inside-out caramel apple." I served it over vanilla ice cream and it was a HUGE hit. Thanks! Read More

This pie was delicious. I did cut the white sugar to 1/4 cup and I increased the cinnamon to 2 1/2 teaspoons because I like cinnamon. I did bake the pie about 10 minutes longer than the recipes states. Also instead of a two crust pie I use a bottom crust and then I use an apple crisp box mix for the top. Read More

I used a combination of Cortlands and Macs. Next time I'll use Granny Smiths though. I wanted more of a carmel flavor so I added a few more but I cut down on the white sugar only 1/8 cup so it wasn't too sweet. Next time I'll leave it out all together. Everyone enjoyed it even with a store bought crust. Read More
