Salted Caramel Apple Pie


This pie is all about contrasting textures and intense salted caramel apple flavor. A flaky bottom crust is filled with creamy caramel apple filling and topped with crispy brown sugar and butter crumb topping. Just to gild the lily, the pie is drizzled with more silky smooth salted caramel sauce after baking. Pre-baking the bottom crust and cooking the apple filling to thicken up all that delicious apple juice before pouring it into the crust ensures that the bottom crust stays flaky.
