Caramel Apple Pie Recipe


This is a recipe I tried for the first time for Christmas dinner (2013). However, I think this pie is better suited for Thanksgiving.

Caramel Apple Pie
Prep : 10 min

Cook : 45 min
Ingredients :

12 ounces of granny smith apples
2 - 3 ounces packages cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons of granulated sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 ½ tablespoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup of caramel topping
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions:
Beat cream cheese, egg, sugar, flour and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl; spread mixture over graham cracker crust.

Combine apples, caramel topping and cinnamon in a small bowl; gently spoon over cream cheese to keep two distinct layers.
Bake in preheated 375F oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until apple mixture bubbles up around edges of pie. Cool on a wire rack. Serve at room temperature; promptly chill leftover pie.

Pie Crust:
Ingredients :

Graham crackers (you can also use McVities original digestives)
butter
Directions:

Crush the crackers until they are fine crumbs. Do this in a bowl.
Melt the butter and gradually pour in the bowl with cracker crumbs. Mix! Then take the mixture and spread it throughout the pie pan.

Butter and crackers are measured according to your taste and the size of the pie pan.

Note: If I was to do this recipe again I would cut the apple pieces smaller and thinner and make a cinnamon crumble to put on top of the pie. Other than that it was pretty good.



 
Ready to eat! Pie with a side of vanilla ice cream topped with hot caramel sauce.
