My family loves this! I have received a lot of compliments on this pie and it even placed at my county fair in 2010.

Super yummy just the way it is or you can have it with a scoop of french vanilla ice cream while it is still warm.

Filling: peel and slice apples in to a large bowl
Sprinkle 1 teaspoon cinnamon over apple slices and lightly toss. Pour in to your crust.
3
Topping: Mix all ingredients in a bowl until well blended. Heap over top of apples. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes depending on your oven. Topping will be golden brown and apples will be soft but not mushy. Cool for 30 minutes.

Caramel Drizzle: After pie has cooled for 30 minutes, melt caramels and milk in microwave safe dish, microwave until smooth, keep a close eye on this so you do not over cook, I use 15 second increments, drizzle about half over top of pie, sprinkle with chopped pecans, lightly drizzle remaining caramel over nuts. You can garnish with whole pecans if you like.
