On a Christmas Morning a few years back, our doorbell rang. It was a good friend that had worked with my husband, played racquetball with him. In his hands was a pie. Turns out that the pie was a prize winner for a lady in 2001.This is the recipe for the pie that Jim brought to us straight from the oven...

How to Make Crunchy Caramel Apple Pie


  1. Directions for crumb topping:

    Stir together brown sugar, flour, oats.
    Cut in 1/2 c butter until topping is coarse crumbs.
    Set aside.
  2. Directions:

    In a large mixing bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt.
    Add apple slices and gently toss until coated.
    Transfer apple mixture to the pie shell.
  3. Sprinkle crumb topping over apple mixture.

    Place pie on a cookie sheet so drippings don't drop into your oven.
    Cover edges with aluminum foil to prevent burnt edges.
  4. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 25-30 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven.
    Sprinkle pie with chopped pecans and drizzle caramel on top.
    Cool on a wire rack for as long as you like (or as long as you can resist temptation...)
    Enjoy warm or at room temp.
