Caramel Apple Pie

Caramel apple pie is such a fun twist on traditional apple pie! The apples are covered in a cinnamon caramel goodness to make this the best apple pie ever.

Ingredients

For the Caramel Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 6 TBS unsalted butter
  • 1/2 TBS salt
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the Pie:

  • 6 large apples peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp apple pie spice
  • 1 TBS lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup salted caramel sauce
  • 2 pie crusts

Instructions

For the Caramel Sauce:

  • Add the sugars 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. Sugar will form into small clumps and then will eventually melt into an amber liquid, keep stirring!
  • 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, stirring to mix it in.
  • Remove pot from heat and stir in the salt and vanilla extract.
  • Whisk until sauce is smooth.
  • Set aside.

For the Pie:

  • 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 10-15 minutes, or until apples start to soften 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.
  • 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 whipped cream and the extra caramel sauce drizzled on top.
