Apple Pie… Oh so wonderful

I have died and gone to heaven… apple pie heaven that is.  I have recently been given the BEST apple pie recipe EVER!  Ok, to be fair there are probably other really wonderful recipes out there, but this one really is great. My pictures are not going to do it justice, so your just going to have to take my word for it. Eat it warm with a dollop of vanilla ice cream – of course!

This is the perfect time of year for this apple pie, because apples are at their lowest price, I got mine for .39 cents a pound! The only other thing I needed was a pie crust, Aldi’s sells them for $1.00 and I had everything else on hand.

Yummy Crunchy Caramel Apple Pie

For Pie-  single pie crust

½ cup sugar

3 teaspoons flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon salt

6 thin sliced peeled apples

Crumb Topping- 1 cup packed brown sugar

½ cup flour

½ cup quick fixin rolled oats

½ cup butter

Final topping

½ cup chopped pecans

¼ cup caramel ice cream topping

Prepare pastry for single crust pie, and place in pie plate.  In a large mixing bowl stir together the sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt.  Add apples and toss until they are coated well.  Transfer mixture to pie.

For crumb topping-

Stir together brown sugar, flour and oats.  Using a pastry blender, cut the butter until topping resembles course crumbs.  Sprinkle over apple mixture in pie. To prevent over browning while baking, cover the edge of the pie with foil.  Bake at 375 for 25 minutes and then remove the foil and bake additional 25-30 minutes until golden brown
