Salted Caramel Apple Pie

Salted Caramel Apple Pie

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love apple pie. Apple pie in any form – slab pie, galette, Dutch-style , traditional double-crust … if it has the words apple and pie in the name, I will devour it. Last year, I made a Salted Caramel Apple Cheesecake Pie , which totally blew my mind. I’ll eat cheesecake without abandon, but the combination of the apples with the salted caramel was absolutely superb. I knew that at some point I wanted to try a more traditional apple pie with the infusion of a salted caramel sauce. It finally happened, and I couldn’t have been happier with the results. A melt-in-your-mouth butter crust and paper-thin apple sliced layered with a homemade salted caramel sauce is dessert nirvana.
