“You'll love the smell in your kitchen—and the smiles on everybody's faces—when you make this scrumptious pie that's drizzled with caramel sauce.”
—Gloria C., Santa Rose, California

Ingredients

  • 7 cups sliced peeled tart apples
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping, room temperature
  • 1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

Streusel Topping

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping, room temperature

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice and vanilla. Combine the pecans, sugars, cinnamon and cornstarch; add to apple mixture and toss to coat. Pour caramel topping over bottom of pastry shell; top with apple mixture (shell will be full). Drizzle with butter.

  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, pecans and sugar. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over filling.
