Caramel Apple Pie
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
  • 2 disks of pie crust dough (I use the recipe linked below; do not forget to use chilled butter & ice water)
  • 5 Tart Apples such as Granny Smith peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 6 Tbsp of Unsalted Butter
  • ½ cup packed Light Brown Sugar
  • ½ cup Granulated Sugar
  • 3 Tbsp Corn Starch
  • 1 Tbsp Ground Cinnamon
  • ¼ Cup Water
  • 15 soft caramel cubes (optional if you like your pie on the sweeter side; without it the pie was just right not too sweet for us)
  • A pinch of Salt
  • 1 Egg lightly beaten with 1 tsp of water (for egg wash)
  1. Heat oven to 400F.
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add in the brown sugar, granulated sugar, corn starch, ground cinnamon, water, and the caramel cubes. Stir frequently to break up any lumps until sugars are dissolved and the sauce becomes thick (5-7 minutes).
  3. Roll out 1 disk of pie dough to fit a 9 inch pie plate.
  4. Trim edges leaving 1" of dough overhanging over the edge of the plate.
  5. Layer the apple slices inside the crust spreading out evenly. If you are using a pie bird like me place the pie bird at the center of the pie before you layer the apples.
  6. Pour the sauce over the apples.
  7. Roll out the 2nd disk of pie dough to form a 10" circle for the top crust.
  8. Place over the top of the pie. If you are using a pie bird, which basically serves and an air venting mechanism
  9. Crimp the edges to form a tight seal and if necessary fold extra dough inside next to the rim.
  10. Brush with egg mixture (to give the finished pie crust a warm shine).
  11. Cut an X or slit at the center of the pie (if you are not using a pie bird) or you could cut out designs like I did with the stars. The idea is to create a vent for the steam that will build up inside when it cooks.
  12. Bake until the crust is golden brown and filling is bubbling, about 50 minutes (depending on your owen it might take a couple of minute more or less).
  13. Let cool completely before serving.
