Dutch Carmel Apple Pie

Jane Whittaker


My Grannie Miller used to make what she called Dutch apple pies that are made with brown sugar. I took this one step further and added carmels. The carmel flavor gets more pronounced as the pie cools.
The only thing that makes it better is to add a scoop of home made vanilla bean ice cream like I have done here
