I came across this recipe on a Facebook group page (link at bottom) and it looked delicious.
At first glance I could tell the recipe had too much sugar in it so I cut the amount in half. It was the right choice. I upped the cinnamon amount as well. Also I am noting that you must put this on a baking sheet or you will have a huge mess in your oven. All that being said it turned out fabulous and is a super easy, fast recipe.
- 1/4 cup of butter
- 1/4 cup of sugar
- 1/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1/4 cup of water
- 1/2 to 1teaspoon of cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- 5 or 6 apples
- double pie crust
Put the first 6 ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil on the stove stirring to dissolve the sugar. Set aside.
Peel and thinly slice the apples and put in the bottom of the pie shell. Cut the top crust into a strips and weave over the apples to make a lattice crust.
Pour the caramel mixture over top of the lattice crust allowing it to drip into the apples. You heard me right. You are pouring it over top of the crust. Don’t pour it right to the edge though. Leave about half an inch of the crust bare.
Place on a baking tray, lined with foil, and into a 450 degree oven for 15 minutes then reduce heat to 350 and bake another 35 to 40 more minutes. Cool on a rack completely before slicing.
I found this to be the easiest pie I have ever made. It took about 5 minutes because I use premade crusts. My own crusts are not very good. Can’t beat that.
