List of Ingredients
1 pkg. (11-oz) caramel candies, such as Kraft, unwrapped
6 cups sliced, peeled and cored Granny Smith or Golden Delicious apples, about 2 lbs
1 T. fresh lemon juice
2 T. + 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
9" unbaked pie shell
3 T. packed light or dark brown sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp. salt
6 T. butter
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 375°F. Combine caramels and 2 tsp. water in top of double boiler and cook and stir over low heat until caramels melt and mixture is smooth; remove from heat and set aside.
In large bowl, sprinkle apples with lemon juice, then 2 T. flour: toss to combine. Layer apple mixture in unbaked pie shell alternately with layers of melted caramel; set aside.
In separate bowl, combine remaining 3/4 cup flour with brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or two knives; stir in pecans. Sprinkle mixture evenly over apples. Bake 40-50 minutes or until apples are tender. Let cool at least 2 hours before serving.
