Loved it! Just added a scoop of vanilla ice cream and it was the perfect sweetness! Very easy to make also.
My grandfather was a baker and after he passed I always used his receipe for Apple pie until I found this, this is the best pie I have ever made. My husband ate the whole thing.
Although this isn't the exact recipe I have and made, it's the closest one. The recipe that I have from Taste of Home calls for 1/2 tsp cinn. or nutmeg. Under topping it calls for 1/4 cup butter/margarine, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 T heavy cream, and 1/2 cup chopped pecans. I've had this recipe card for probably 17 years and this is the first time I've made this pie. It was excellent and my kids loved it as much as the apple pie that I make every Thanksgiving and Christmas.
This pie is delicious! I took it to a family reunion and three people asked me for the recipe. I made it again for a family dinner and everyone enjoyed it. The caramel topping makes it.
