Apple Caramel Pie

I can't believe I totally forgot to put my post up until this evening. Sorry! I made the first apple pies of the season. We actually had rain and a bit of cooler weather.


I peeled and sliced some ginger golds, galas and granny smith's.


To make the caramel sauce, melt a stick of butter in a pan.


Add 3 tablespoons of flour and whisk until it is smooth.


Add 1/4 cup of water.


Add 1/2 cup of white sugar.


Then 1/2 cup of dark brown sugar. I doubled the recipe which is why you see me adding 1 cup.


Bring it to a boil and simmer it for 1 minute, then set it aside to cool.


Place the sliced apples in a pre-made pie dough. I made these in soup sized bowls. Each pie will serve at least two people. Ladle some of the caramel over the apples. Make a lattice crust for the top.


It was so warm in my kitchen that the dough was tough to work with. Usually my lattice is much neater.


Divide the remaining caramel between the pies and pour it through the lattice.


Make sure the pies are on a rimmed covered cookie sheet. I did not do this and my oven was a mess.


They do boil over when they cook.


But they are certainly worth it!

That looks so good~I really, really want that right now. I'm completely upset that my tree doesn't have apples this year. It's been a horrible year for gardening this year.

That pie looks wonderful!! I'm still baking with berries but apples will come soon. We love the caramel with apples!
I think I´ve eaten this once. A friend of mine did it (or a very similar one) and it was heavenly :-) :-) :-) I´ll try and make this one when my apples are ready :-)

Have a great day!

Cherry pies would be my favorite, with apple being my 2nd favorite. Well done. Richard from Amish Stories.

I have to wait one more year for my apple trees to bear fruit, so I'm off to the local market. These look wonderful! Do you think that would work with pears? Have you ever made a pear pie? Just curious.
