Step 1

Caramel Apple Pie - Step 1

Preheat oven to 425
Peel, core and slice apples and place in a 9″ deep dish pie shell.

Step 2

Caramel Apple Pie - Step 2

Combine next 6 ingredients and pour over apples.

Step 3

Caramel Apple Pie - Step 3

Put on top crust. Crimp and slit to let out steam. Bake for 40 minutes.
NOTE: Crimp the edges high so that the caramel topping will have a place to rest and not slide off. I would bake on a baking sheet. This pie has a tendency to be very messy!

Step 4

Caramel Apple Pie - Step 4

While baking, combine the caramel topping.
After 40 minutes, remove pie from oven and pour the caramel mixture above over top of pie. Return to oven and bake for 5 more minutes.

I am not loyal to any particular type of apple. I usually try and use 2 ~ one a little tart and one a little sweet. It should be an apple that holds up well when baking.
