Salted Cider Caramel Apple Pie


This recipe is a wonderful combination of Erin McDowell's Cider Caramel Apple Pie ( and Four & Twenty Blackbirds Salted Caramel Apple Pie ( with a few minor tweaks of my own. Sweet, salty, spiced, and tall, this pie is a crowd-pleaser, both for the eyes and the tastebuds.
