Homemade Caramel Apple Pie

Holy Craft's newest contributor, Kate, has been busy in the kitchen!  Last week she shared with us M&M candy corn cookies {did you try them?}  and this week, she's sharing with us her homemade caramel apple pie.  It's part of the Wayfair Battle of the pies contest. 

Since you all can't try the pies in this competition, the way votes are counted is by engagement: make a comment, share a post, pin the image, like the picture, you name it, we will take it!  You can find all of Holy Craft's social media outlets on the far right side bar of this post.  

But most of all, we just hope you will enjoy this yummy spin on this classic favorite.

Caramel Apple Pie
{printable recipe}


5-6 hard fleshed apple of choice peeled and cored {I used gingergold}
zest of one lemon
juice from one lemon
1 tbsp brown sugar
½ cup flour
¼ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp cinnamon

Slice apples into thin slices {all the same size} and mix with lemon juice and zest. 

Mix flour, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl and toss with apple. Set aside.

Pie Crust:

12 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
6 to 8 tablespoons {about 1/2 cup} ice water
Make it easy and use a store bought pie crust {I personally love Trader Joes}

Cut butter into small cubes and return it to the refrigerator while you prepare the flour mixture. Place the flour, salt, and sugar in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade and pulse a few times to mix. Add the butter. Pulse 8 to 12 times, until the butter is the size of peas. With the machine running, pour the ice water in and pulse until the dough begins to form a ball. Dump out on a floured board and roll into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Cut the dough in half. Roll each piece on a floured surface into a circle, rolling from the center to the edge, turning and flouring the dough to make sure it doesn't stick to the board. Fold the dough in half, place in a pie pan, and unfold to fit the pan. Repeat with the top crust and cut into strips. 
Fill in the bottom pie crust with apple mixture.

Arrange strips of pie crust into a lattice design on top.  Trim excess pie crust and crimp edges.

Caramel Sauce:

¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup white sugar
4 tbsp butter
pinch salt
½ tsp cinnamon
In a sauce pan melt all the ingredients and keep warm until ready to pour on pie.
Pour all the caramel on top. 

Place foil on edges on pie and bake at 375 degrees for about 1 hour.

Enjoy a slice and share some with a friend!

Apples are perfectly in season right now and make the best pies. Make it even better by adding caramel to the top. It's sure to be a new family favorite!
