Caramel Crunch Apple Pie
Comment on this recipe
This pie is the best apple pie I have ever tasted. Scrumptious by itself or served warm with vanilla ice cream, it is heavenly. My family enjoys it tremendously. My husband prefers pie over cake, so I serve this one on his birthday. He always says it is better than any birthday cake I could make.
Pastry for 9-inch crust
3 tablespoons cold water
4 cups peeled and sliced apples
3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup margarine or butter
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Roll pastry to 12-inch circle. Place in 9 inch pie pan; flute edges. Melt caramels with water in microwave until melted over medium heat, about 1 to 2 minutes. Be careful not to overcook. Spoon sliced apples into unbaked pie shell. Drizzle caramels over top of apples.
Mix flour, sugar and cinnamon. Cut margarine or butter in until mixture resembles coarst crumbs. Stir in walnuts. Sprinkle this mixture over apples in pie crust.
Bake 40 to 45 minutes until apples are tender. Serves 8.
