Ingredients

Apple Pie Filling:

  • 3 1/2 lbs. Apples Granny Smith, McIntosh, Honeycrisp, peeled and sliced thinly
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon

Salted Caramel Sauce:

Instructions

  1. Make double pie crust recipe according to directions -- https://www.modernhoney.com/butter-flaky-pie-crust/
  2. In a large bowl, toss the peeled and thinly sliced apples in the lemon juice. Sprinkle with the flour and toss to coat.
  3. In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the brown sugar, sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Cook over medium heat, stirring often for about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the apples and cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples have softened very slightly and the sauce has thickened, about 10 - 12 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.

Salted Caramel:

  1. In medium sized pot, whisk together sugar and water and cook over medium-low heat for 3 minutes or until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Add butter and let cook for 9-11 minutes or until a golden brown color begins to form. Do not stir but watch carefully.
  3. Once the caramel is a warm copper color, remove from heat. Add 1/2 cup heavy cream. Be careful as it will bubble. Stir in salt. Pour into jar and place in refrigerator to chill for 1 hour.

To assemble Apple Pie:

  1. Layer apple pie filling into prepared pie crust, leaving behind some of the juices. Pour 1 cup of chilled caramel sauce over apples.
  2. Place top layer or pie dough over apples in a lattice pattern. Make an egg wash by whisking together egg, water, and salt. Brush over pie crust. Sprinkle with sugar.
  3. Chill for 20 minutes.
  4. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes. Place pie shield or foil over pie crust edges. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and continue to bake for additional 30 minutes. Using knife, check to see if apples are soft and cooked through.
  6. Allow pie to cool for 3-4 hours. Serve with vanilla bean ice cream and extra caramel sauce.
