The Best Caramel Apple Pie

It's that time of year again!  Caramel apple pie time.  This is such a good recipe I just must post it again for anyone new to the blog that hasn't tried it yet.

Prepare or buy your favorite pie crust.  I make a pate' brisee for mine.

I tripled the crust recipe since I was making a bunch of pies.

Roll out your dough and spray your pie plate with cooking spray.

Fit the dough into the plate.

Peel a variety of apples.  I used Gala and Goldens.

Slice the apples in uniform pieces.  Fill your crusts with just plain apples.

Roll out more dough and cut it in long strips.

Make a lattice top for the pie.

In a heavy pan melt 1/2 cup of butter. Stir in 3 T. of flour and whisk it for a few minutes. Add 1/4 C. water, 1/2 C. white sugar and 1/2 C. of dark brown sugar. Bring this to a boil, whisk it a bit and then let it simmer on low until ready to use. This mixture is enough for one pie.

Slowly drizzle the caramel through the holes on all of your pies.

Bake them in a 450 degree oven for 15 minutes and then lower the oven temperature to 350 and continue to bake for another hour.  As you can see on the lower right pie, the filling should be bubbling when the pie is done baking.

Let cool before cutting!

Leaving now for the local farmers market to buy apples!!!! I cannot wait to make this, and I hate to bake! Or cook! I love to eat though. And your recipes make me look like I actually know what I'm doing in the kitchen.
Blessings to you.

Beautiful pie. Apples and caramel are made for each other, I think! xo

I've never done this one myself but a friend of mine makes a similar pie and it is delicious, dangerously delicious :-)
I must remember to make this one this autumn, I have so many apples on my trees I can't take care of them :-)

Have a great day!

I can see that the hardest part of baking this pie is the "let it cool" part. Oh, yep. I'm gonna make this one for sure. Thanks and whole bunch.

Now this is funny - I did caramel apple cheesecake on my blog today. It must be the season!
Joyce, those dishes look so deep, not like the shallow pie plates I use, is that part of why they carmelize ?
Look so dewishous
Back to the orchard for me! I made this pie last year and it was heavenly. If my brother is nice to me he might get one this year.

A beautiful, delicious and fragrant pie. It shouts "Autumn!"

Like Robin said before, this pie shouts "Autumn". I don't like apple pies much, shame on me, but otherwise I love apples and apple desserts and I adore caramel. So I want to try this one.

This looks so good. I have loved caramel apples since I was a child!!
Wow, now I would love the taste of something like that. But my family would not. -sigh-

They simply MUST have the SAME Apple Pie, which Mom/Nana has been making for years and years. -grin-

Drooling. As usual.

Sticking (mostly) to my eating plan though.... I did have a few Mallomars AND a chocolate milkshake yesterday....

My sister Susan said to tell you that Roxy is an "anti Chow" meaning she has no people hating issues... BUT!!! she does not tolerate other dogs except for my little poodle Ginger. Ginger was in NJ in 2006 and she frightened Roxy!!! Hilarious!!!!!!!!!!! Roxy could have eaten Ginger alive in one bite!!!
