Salted Caramel Apple Pie
This pie has everything you'd want out of an apple pie. The buttery, flaky crust, spiced apple filling, and sweet, salty caramel sauce are a perfect combination of flavors and textures in every bite. Serve a la mode with a side of vanilla bean ice cream.
It's important to take your time with the various steps to make this pie. Make sure your dough is adequately chilled so that you maximize the number of flaky layers in the crust. If you don't let your pie cool properly after baking and before slicing, your filling will not set properly and run.
Caramel sauce can also be stored in a refrigerator, covered, for up to a month. If refrigerated, let caramel set at room temperature until ready to use, about 45 minutes, heating slightly in microwave for 30 to 60 seconds if needed to bring to pourable consistency.
The pie dough can also be wrapped tightly and frozen until ready to use.
