Caramel Apple Pie
Here is the winning recipe for last week’s Farmers' Market’s apple pie baking contest. It comes to us courtesy of the winning baker... 12 year old Rachel Wise! This is seriously good apple pie... if you only bake one pie this fall, bake this one. It's that good! Read about the contest in this week's Farmers' Market report.
1 pie crust for 9-inch pie
For crumble topping:
3/4 cup pecans, chopped
For caramel sauce:
1/2 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Arrange crust in a 9-inch pie pan, trim edges, and use scraps to decorate crust. In a large bowl, combine flour, 3/4 cup sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add apples, sprinkle with lemon juice, and toss to coat. Transfer filling to crust, mounding apples slightly in center. Brush edges of crust with half and half and sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon sugar. Bake for 40 minutes, until apples just begin to soften. Meanwhile, prepare crumble topping and caramel sauce.
For crumble topping, combine pecans, flour, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.
