Sweat Treat: Caramel Apple Pie
There’s something about the warm, comforting aroma of a freshly baked Caramel Apple Pie that can instantly transport you to a cozy autumn afternoon. The combination of sweet, gooey caramel and tart, crisp apples nestled in a flaky pastry crust is a match made in dessert heaven.
For this delightful Caramel Apple Pie, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- 1 package of refrigerated pie crusts
- 6 cups of thinly sliced, peeled apples (such as Granny Smith or Honeycrisp)
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup caramel sauce
- 2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
Follow these simple steps to create your own Caramel Apple Pie:
- Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
- Line a 9-inch pie pan with one of the pie crusts.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced apples, granulated sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt. Toss until the apples are coated.
- Pour the apple mixture into the prepared pie crust. Drizzle the caramel sauce over the apples and dot with butter.
- Place the second pie crust over the filling and crimp the edges to seal. Make a few slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape.
- Bake for 45-55 minutes or until the crust is golden brown, and the filling is bubbling.
- Allow the pie to cool for at least 2 hours before serving to let the caramel set.
