Rustic Caramel Apple Pie

I found some nice apples at the store the other day, took them home and made this little pie. It was just the perfect size, made about 6 small slices. The crust was flaky and delicious, and the warm cinnamon apple filling with the caramel topping made this a special treat!

  • Rustic Caramel Apple Pie
  • T of H

  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 6-1/2 teaspoons cold water
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • make filling:
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped peeled tart apples
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • top with:
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2 tablespoons caramel  topping, warmed ( add before serving)

Mix the flour, sugar,salt and butter until crumbly. Add water and vanilla and form gently into a ball. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes. Remove and roll in  a 10 in. circle. Combine the filling and pour in the crust. Fold the edges up slightly and pinch. Mix the topping and sprinkle on top. Bake at for 25 minutes on a parchment lined pan. ( I baked longer and covered the top so it wouldn't brown too much) Before serving drizzle with caramel topping.
