For this pie, feel free to use apples like Granny Smith, Jonagold, or Crispin which are great for pies. for this, I used a combination of Granny Smith and Jonagold. Together, they give a tart yet subtle sweetness, which is balanced out with the caramel sauce and brown sugar topping.
As for the caramel, you can certainly make your own... but I went the store bought route. Specifically, I used Dilettant Chocolate's Sea Salted Caramel dessert topping. (BTW, it's heavenly!) You can usually find the caramel sauce near the ice cream topping section of your grocery store.
The topping is a simple mix of four ingredients and that's really all you need for this simple pie. An extra drizzle of caramel sauce - plus ice cream if you want to go all the way - makes this simple pie that more extra special.
Caramel Apple Crisp Pie
original Joelen recipe
1/4 cup caramel sauce (homemade or store bought) + more for serving
Line a pie plate with your pie crust dough.
Drizzle caramel sauce over apples.
In another bowl, mix together flour, brown sugar, oats, and butter. Spoon mixture evenly over apples.
Bake in preheated oven for about 45 minutes (apple mixture will bubble and topping will be golden brown).
Serve warm with more caramel drizzle for garnish and ice cream if you'd like!
