When I think of Thanksgiving pie, I first always think of pumpkin pie and then second apple pie. But its strange, cause neither of them are my favorite. But I still wanted to try this delicious caramel apple pie recipe out. And let me tell you, I loved it. Caramel apple pie is WAY better than just a normal apple pie (imo).
For another delicious apple dessert, try our caramel apple bars.
- 6 large apples, peeled, cored and sliced
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup sugar
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp apple pie spice
- 1 TBS lemon juice
- ¼ cup cornstarch
- ¾ cup salted caramel sauce (recipe below)
- 2 pie crusts
- In a medium sized pot combine the apples, brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, apple pie filling and lemon juice. Heat on the stove top over medium high heat. Cover with a lid and allow to cook for 20 minutes, or until apples are soft. Stir occasionally.
- Remove from heat, remove lid and allow to cool completely.
- Once cooled, stir in the cornstarch.
- Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
- Lay one of your pie crusts in a pie pan sprayed with nonstick spray.
- Stir the apple mixture and the caramel sauce together.
- Pour the caramel apple pie mixture into the pie crust.
- Top with your second crust. (I decided to make a lattice top for the pie, here's a good video on how)
- Place in oven and bake your pie. Bake for about 45 minutes, or until the crust is a golden brown color.
- Allow pie to cool before serving.
- Enjoy with the extra caramel sauce drizzled on top.
1. In a medium sized pot combine the apples, brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, apple pie filling and lemon juice. Heat on the stove top over medium high heat. Cover with a lid and allow to cook for 20 minutes, or until apples are soft. Stir
- ½ cup sugar
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 6 TBS unsalted butter
- ½ TBS salt
- ½ cup half and half
- Add the sugar to a medium sized pot and melt over medium high heat. As the sugar melts stir the entire time so that it doesn't burn.
- Once the sugar is melted and a darker color add all of the butter and stir while it melts in.
- Pour in the half and half and salt, stirring to mix it in.
- Remove pot from heat and whisk until sauce is smooth.
If you have leftover sauce you can store it covered in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute, then stir to get its original creaminess back.
