For 15 years my husband, daughter and I owned and operated an apple orchard, where we raised 27 variations of apples on 2,200 trees. This recipe is my personal favorite. My family even prefers this wonderful tart over traditional apple pie. I hope you enjoy it, too. -Marilyn Begres, Dexter, Michigan

  1. In a small skillet, heat 3/4 cup sugar, stirring constantly until it is liquefied and just golden. Remove from the heat and quickly pour into a 10-in. pie plate; set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon and remaining sugar. Arrange half of the apples in a single layer in a circular pattern in pie plate. Sprinkle with half of the sugar mixture. Arrange half of the remaining apples in circular pattern over sugar; sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture. Place remaining apples over all, keeping the top as level as possible. Dot with butter.
  3. Roll out pastry to 9-in.; place over apples, pressing gently to completely cover. Do not flute. Bake at 400° for 50 minutes or until golden brown and apples are tender. As soon as tart comes out of the oven, carefully invert onto a large serving plate and remove pie plate. Cool. Yield: 8 servings.

"Love this recipe, before I had perfected a traditional apple pie I made this many times. The first apple pie my Son made and now he makes the pies for his in-laws family dinners. We still enjoy this caramel apple pie."

"I would LOVE to say that I made this it was simple and delicious but after two failed attempts, I quit. It is not easy to melt sugar. The first time the sugar dissolved but then hardened in the pie crust. The second attempt led to the sugar not dissolving and hardening in the pie crust. My fault maybe but still not at all an easy recipe."

"quick and much easier than apple pie. I used greased parchment paper on bottom of pan for nonstick removal, and sprinkled 1/2 cup coconut on top of apple slices. The whole family loved it!"
