CARAMEL APPLE PIE


My husband's birthday...no cake for him, he requests caramel apple pie. So I tried this recipe, it was delicious. The pie crust was a little tricky to work with. You have to make sure it is very cold and you work quick. Use a little flour on the parchment paper when you are rolling it out if it gets too sticky. Or maybe you have your own favorite pie crust recipe. Or maybe you just want to buy frozen pie crusts. Bottom line, its all about the caramel apple filling...with a side of vanilla ice cream...with cinnamon sprinkled on top...and a candle!

Caramel Apple Pie
Loosely adapted from www.foodnetwork.com

Pie Crust:
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon butter, chilled
1/3 cup ice water
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 egg, beaten
Filling:
6 cups apples (Jonathan or Granny Smith)
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 tablespoons heavy cream
4 tablespoons butter
Streusel Topping:
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon butter
2 toffee bars, crushed

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Make the Pie Crust:
Chill all ingredients, including the flour and vinegar. Combine the flour, salt and sugar. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles cornmeal. In another bowl, mix water and vinegar with the beaten egg. Add the liquid mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, to the flour mixture, tossing with a fork to form a soft dough.
Divide dough into two pieces. Roll out 2 pie shells on two pieces of parchment or waxed paper. Cut vent holes in the top pie shell with small cookie cutters. Keep pie shells cooled in refrigerator until ready to use.

Filling:
Peel and slice apples.

I LOVE my apple peeler!


Sprinkle with lemon juice. Combine dry ingredients in large bowl and add apples.

Toss to mix. Add vanilla and cream. Melt butter in heavy skillet. Add apple mixture and cook approximately 8 minutes, to soften apples.

Take one pie shell out of refrigerator and line a pie dish. Turn apples into pie shell.

Streusel Topping:
Combine the flour and sugar. Mix in butter with fork until coarse crumbs. stir in the crushed toffee bars. Sprinkle over pie. Add top pie shell and seal along the edge. Brush with beaten egg white and sprinkle with sugar.

I am also a pie fan instead of cake for my birthday. However, after checking out your website, I am thinking "The Best Coconut Cake" is going to replace my annual homemade coconut cream pie. I just know it will be wonderful because it has Coco Lopez in it and I could put that in an IV :)
