First I made "Soft Candy Caramels" # 327674 and place it in my apple pie. The family loved it and our guests said it was like eating a piece of Blue Ribbon Pie at a country fair. The sauce from the caramel and apple juice is sweet and delicious. I used a mix of apples and added a scoop of whole wheat flour to my crust. Great recipe!
