Hey guys!  I hope you have all had a good week!  It has been a busy few weeks around these parts so I am really looking forward to having SIX days off!!  I hit up Michaels and the dollar store yesterday – I can feel a big weekend of Christmas projects ahead! :)

A few weeks ago, I shared my new favorite dessert over at Whipperberry.  For those of you that didn’t see it, here it is – Salted Caramel Apple Pie.

Directions 

Crust
Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl. Add the shortening, working it into the mixture using a pastry blender until course crumbs form.  Fill a bowl with water and some ice cubes.  Sprinkle about 2-3 tbsp. of the water over the mixture distributing it evenly.  Continue to add water 1 tbsp. at a time until the dough will hold together when pressed.  Divide the dough into two balls, one slightly larger than the other and then flatten into 1/2 inch thick discs.  Chill for at least 30 minutes.

Filling

Cook the cubed apples with 2 tbsp. of butter in a large skillet for 10 minutes over medium heat.  Allow to cool.  In a sauce pan, melt 1 tbsp. of butter with the flour and cook on low for 1 minute.  Add the caramel sauce, cinnamon and salt.  Continue to cook for approximately 3 minutes.  Combine approximately 3/4 of the mixture with the cooled apples.  Save the remaining caramel sauce for the topping.

Putting it Together

Preheat the oven to 375F.  Lightly flour your workspace and roll out the larger ball of dough into a large circle to line the bottom and sides of your pie plate {approximately an 11 inch circle}.  Place the dough in a nine inch pie plate and fill with the apple mixture.  Roll out the remaining dough to form the top of the pie.  Brush the edges of the pie with the beaten egg and press to seal.  Cut some vent slits in the center of the pie.  Brush the top of the pie with egg and sprinkle with the sugar and salt.  Bake for 55-60 minutes until the crust is golden brown.

Top with vanilla ice cream and drizzle with the remaining caramel sauce.  Pure deliciousness!

    This recipe looks so good! I want to make it for thanksgiving. I went to the store to look for the caramel sauce, but was unable to find it. Looked by sweetened condensed milk. Is this usually a hard item to find??

      i only had to look in one store {Superstore} so it wasn’t hard to find where I am. I know they also had it at Walmart. Usually the products are available more readily in the States than in Canada so if I found it here it should be available down there as well. Good luck!!

    Yum! I would like to make this a day or two ahead of turkey day, does the pie hold well and does it need to be refrigerated?

    Can’t find the dolce de leche Carmel sauce in the store. I was going to make my own with the sweetened condensed milk but wast sure how much was needed for the pie. Is one can sufficient?

    I could not find the Dulce de Leche Caramel sauce either but being brazilian I remember my sister making it by cooking the condensed milk in the pressure cooker.
