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.

Caramel Apple Slab Pie

prep time: 20 mins cook time: 45 mins total time: 65 mins



2 1/2 Cups flour
1/4 Cup cornstarch
2 Tbsps sugar
1 Tsp vanilla
1/2 Cup cold butter
2 Tbsps cold water {use more as needed 1 Tbsp at a time to firm and form the dough}


8 apples
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tsp cinnamon
1/8 Cup caramel syrup
1 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp flour

To make the glaze just mix 1 cup confectioner’s sugar with 3 Tbsps milk and 1 tsp vanilla.


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a large cookie pan and set aside.
In a bowl quickly combine the flour and butter, mix it until it resembles coarse sand. Add the sugar, vanilla, and cornstarch and incorporate it. Slowly add the water and mix. Add more cold water 1 Tbsp at a time until the dough holds together.
Press your dough into the bottom of the pan using your hand. You can also attempt to roll it with a rolling pin and then put it into your pan. Cook for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, slice the apples and, in a bowl, mix the sugar, cinnamon, caramel syrup, water, and flour. Add the apples and mix until evenly coated.
Place the apple slices into the pie crust and take to the oven. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until done.

Remove from the oven and drizzle with caramel syrup and sugar glaze.
Serve and enjoy.


Instead of a caramel syrup and sugar glaze, you can top the slab pie with your favorite streusel topping just after adding the apples. Sprinkle on top and cook for 30-35 minutes. This is mine:

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups old-fashioned oats
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup cold butter, cut in pieces

You can make whatever variation you like for this slab pie. It will feed a crowd. I like adding struesel topping to mine and then covering it with the caramel drizzle and confectioners sugar glaze.

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!
