"This pie is the best apple pie I have ever tasted. Scrumptious by itself or served warm with vanilla ice cream. My family enjoys it alot usually make in the fall when the apples are delicious."

Ingredients

Pastry for 1 crust (9-inch pie pan)
24 caramels (unwrapped)
3 tablespoons cold water
4 cups peeled and sliced apples
3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar or more
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup margarine or butter
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll pastry to 12-inch circle. Place in 9-inch pie pan. Flute edges.

In microwave-safe bowl, melt caramels with water in microwave oven until melted (medium temperature for about 1 to 2 minutes or until liquified). 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 coarse crumbs. Stir in walnuts. Sprinkle this mixture over apples in pie crust.
