You'll love the smell in your kitchen—and the smiles on everybody's faces—when you make this scrumptious caramel apple pie recipe. It takes me back home to Virginia and being at my granny's table. —Gloria Castro, Santa Rose, California
When I first made this pie for my family, the reactions weren't real words—they were more "Ooh!" and "Mmm!" I created it to enter in a local fair. My goal was an apple pie like no other, and it ended up winning third prize. —Lisa DiNuccio, Boxford, Massachusetts
I was raised on a small farm, the youngest of eight children and the only girl. My mom taught me how to make all kinds of pies from scratch, and this is one of my favorites. Caramels and apples are a delicious combination.
I developed this recipe through the years to get it exactly where we want it. I've entered several pie contests with it and placed first each time—one bite and you'll know why this pie's a winner! —Laurel Dalzell, Manteca, California
