Can I use Homemade Pie Crust?

Yes, you can use a Homemade Pie Crust. We used a already prepared uncooked pie crust in this recipe, but I do love the flavor of a homemade pie crust. This 3 Ingredient Pie Crust is my favorite way to make it.

Anyone can easily make a homemade pie crust thanks to this simple recipe. In fact, you probably already have the ingredients on hand to make this.

It is so delicious and with only 3 ingredients, it will be perfect for the Salted Caramel Apple Pie.

Ingredients needed - pie crusts, salted caramel sauce, apples, lemon juice, sugar, flour, salt, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, egg

Ingredients: 

  • Premade Pie Crusts, refrigerated  – You will need two pie crust for this recipe. You can either make your own pie crust or buy premade pie crust.
  • Salted Caramel Sauce, divided – We bought our caramel sauce at the store, but you can easily make your own with simple ingredients.
  • Granny Smith Apples, peeled and sliced into thin slices – We like using granny smith apples as they add the perfect tartness to the recipe. But another suggestion is Gala apples, but use what you prefer.
  • Lemon Juice – Adds just the right amount of lemon flavor and keeps the apples fresh.
  • Sugar – We used white sugar, but feel free to use a sugar substitute.
  • All Purpose Flour 
  • Salt  
  • Ground Cinnamon 
  • Ground Allspice 
  • Ground Nutmeg 

FOR THE TOPPING: 

  • Large Egg, lightly beaten
  • Sugar 

How to Make Salted Caramel Apple Pie: 

  • Prepare the Oven – Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and chill the pie crust while you prepare the filling. 
  • Season the Apples – Place the apple slices in a large bowl.  Add in the lemon juice, sugar, flour, salt, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg.  Toss to thoroughly coat the apples with the seasonings.  Set aside. 
The process of mixing the apple pie filling
  • Lay Pie Crust in Pie Plate – Place one of the chilled pie crusts in a 9 inch pie pan.  
  • Add the Pie Filling – Then fill the pie crust with the apples and drizzle the top of the apples with ½ cup of the salted caramel sauce. 
  • Prepare the Top Crust – Then lay out the other pie crust on a floured work surface.  Use a pizza cutter, sharp knife or pastry wheel to cut the pie crust into 16 strips that are approximately ½ inch thick. 
  • Make a Weave with the Crust Strips – Then carefully thread the strips over and under one another to make a weave topping on top of the pie.  Trim off any excess overhang on the pie.  Then crimp the edges of the dough with a fork or with your fingers.  
  • Top with egg and Sugar – Gently brush the top of the lattice topping with the lightly beaten egg wash and sprinkle the sugar on top. Cover the crust with foil or a pie crust shield. I like to place the pie on a baking sheet.

  • Bake Pie – Bake the pie at 400 degrees F for 30 minutes.  Remove the foil or pie shield and reduce the oven temperature to 375 degrees F.  Then bake the pie for 20 minutes to 30 more minutes until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling (a small knife inserted into the middle of the pie comes out clean).  
  • Cool Pie – Allow the pie to cool completely on a wire rack at room temperature for at least 4 hours. 
  • Serve and Enjoy – Drizzle the remaining salted caramel sauce on the pie when serving and enjoy!

Apple Caramel Pie Tips:

  • Pie Crust – You can make homemade pie crust or use the premade pie crust. Either way the crust will be delicious and flaky.
  • Pie Crust Design – Since this is a double pie crust pie get creative with your top layer. We did the weave method but it would perfect to cut out leaves or apples with cookie cutter and place on top.
  • Salted Caramel Sauce – We used store bought caramel sauce. But you can make Homemade Caramel Sauce with this simple recipe.
  • Apples – We used granny smith apples for this recipe. But use what you prefer. We think the tartness of the granny smith apples pairs perfectly with the flavors of the caramel sauce.
  • Make Ahead – We love to make pies ahead of time. We think they taste even better when they have had time to rest and blend all the flavors.
  • Brown Sugar – You can substitute in brown sugar for the white sugar.
  • Pie Crust Edges – To keep the pie crust edges from burning, you can cover the edges with a piece of foil. Place a piece of foil under the pie plate and then wrap the foil around the edges to cover the crust.
  • Keep Crust Cold – While preparing your crust, make sure that it doesn’t get warm. It makes it easier to work with when it is cool.
  • Omit Caramel – If you are not a fan of the salted caramel flavor, you can just leave it out. The pie will still be very delicious and flavorful.

Topping Ideas:

  • Whipped cream – We like to make homemade whipped cream. It is very simple to make.
  • Reddi Whip – This is an easy topping if you need to grab something fast.
  • Cool Whip –  Try this in vanilla flavor.
  • Caramel Sauce – This is so decadent drizzled on top with some sugar.
  • Powdered Sugar – Sprinkle powdered sugar on top of the apple pie.
  • Ice cream – Vanilla ice cream is delicious and perfect on the slice of salted caramel apple pie.

Should you Refrigerate Caramel Apple Pie?

Yes, you should refrigerate your fruit pies. They will stay fresh longer but be sure to check the pie before serving. After a few days the pie crust can get soggy since the apples have so much moisture.

I love serving this pie fresh but you can easily make this pie the night before serving. We really like the way the ingredients blend together when stored overnight.

Can you Freeze Caramel Apple Pie?

Yes, you can freeze caramel apple pie either unbaked or baked. Make sure to wrap completely with plastic wrap and aluminum foil and place in the freezer. It will last up to 6 months in the freezer.

You can also freeze just the pie filling and it will last up to 12 months. We recommend storing in a freezer safe container to keep the pie filling fresh.
