Ingredients

  • 1 package of refrigerated pie crusts (2 crusts)
  • 6 cups of thinly sliced, peeled apples (a mix of Granny Smith and Fuji works well)
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 cup of caramel sauce
  • 1 egg, beaten

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Place one pie crust in a 9-inch pie dish and trim any excess crust from the edges.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well until the apples are evenly coated.
  4. Pour the apple mixture into the prepared pie crust.
  5. Drizzle the caramel sauce evenly over the apple filling.
  6. Place the second pie crust over the apples, and crimp the edges to seal the pie. Cut a few slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape.
  7. Brush the beaten egg over the top crust for a beautiful golden finish.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
  9. Remove from the oven and let the pie cool for at least 2 hours before serving. This allows the caramel apple filling to set.
