I had apples that needed to be used, but I was tired of making plain apple pie. Apple bread? Not now. Apple cake? No, I didn't feel like cake... what if I combined a few recipes and made up something new???
1Assemble your bottom pie crust. Which usually means defrost the pie shell that I bought from the store. I can't make pie crusts! I have tried everything! Do not feel bad ;)
2Slice apples to the desired thickness (I like them very thin, my in-laws like them thicker - so you choose!). Combine first five ingredients making sure all the apples are coated with the dry ingredients.
3Pour apple mixture into pie crust.
4Mix Crumb ingredients together with your fingers until the mixture resembles a bowl of peas. Sprinkle over the top of the pie.
5Bake at 425F for 45-50mins. If you are worried about burning the crumbs, just cover with aluminum foil for the last 15-20 minutes. Let cool on pie rack.
6When pie is completely cool, open jar of carmel sauce. Pour over pie. Voila!
