I’m a firm believer that every single person on this planet should know how to make a classic apple pie. Whether you need to pull it together for a potluck or bring something to family Thanksgiving, this recipe isn’t only quick and easy, it’s also a major crowd pleaser. A step-up from the traditional All-American apple pie, this recipe includes a decadent homemade caramel topping and only requires a few ingredients so it won’t break the bank.
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup butter
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 package of pre-made pie crust (contains 2 crusts)
- You can make your own but this is cheaper and easier
- I use Tenderflake pie crust (comes ready-made in a pie tin for baking)
- 3 large apples
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees
- Combine butter, sugar, cinnamon, and water in a sauce pan over medium heat until boiling
- Stir until sugar is dissolved and then remove from heat
- If you made you own dough, roll it 1/2 inch thick and line pie tin
- Core, peel, and slice apples into thin slices
- Put apples into pie crust
- Cut other half of dough into strips
- If using store-bought, remove pie crust from tin and cut into strips
- Place dough strips in lattice over apples
- Pour caramel sauce over the lattice
- There is enough that it will drip through to your apples and this gives your pie crust sticky caramel toffee flavour
- Bake for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 350 degrees, and bake for an additional 35 minutes or until crust is golden
- Let cool and enjoy!
