Caramel Apple Slab Pie

It is officially my favorite time of the year. It's pie season! When I was in junior high I took a cooking class and making pies was one of my favorite things to do. I used to make the perfect crust every single time, but I don't know what it is, maybe I lost my touch through the years, but pie crust has become the most intimidating factor for me in taking up pie making again. Not to worry! This recipe allows you to still hit a home run with a homemade delicious pie crust that doesn't have to be perfect. You can even press it out on the cookie pan. It's so forgiving! But look how very amazing this open faced caramel apple slab pie looks. This may just become a family favorite at those upcoming holiday gatherings. Speaking of, this pie will take less about the same time to make as a traditional apple pie, but it will feed an army! Perfect for large family gatherings.

This pie looks amazing! We are traveling to relatives for Thanksgiving and I think this pie will be the perfect dessert. Thank you for the recipe.

I was writing the recipe down and became confused about the caramel syrup. The recipe calls for 1/8 of a cup to be used in the filling, but then calls for caramel syrup to be drizzled over at the end. Is this just extra syrup? Want to make sure I don't mess it up!

Yes, it's extra caramel syrup. You can never have too much! Can't wait to hear how your crowd loves it!
