This "easy as pie" dessert is sweet, simple and spectacular. Stacked apples with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. This is so much fun! We used vanilla rum-raisin ice cream and Smuckers Butterscotch Caramel Sauce. The raisins should be soaked for only about 10 minutes. CuisineAtHome, Issue 71 - August/September 2008

Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 400ºF; line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Unroll pie dough onto prepared baking sheet, brush with melted butter, and sprinkle with sugar.
- Using a pastry wheel, cut dough into 12 wedges and bake until golden and crisp, about 15 minutes.
- Don't bother separating the triangles after cutting - they'll shrink during baking and won't stick together.
- Remove from oven and set aside.
- Melt butter in a non-stick skillet over medium heat; add apples, drained raisins, cinnamon, and salt, and saute until apples begin to soften, about 4 minutes.
- Add juice, simmer until nearly evaporated, then add 3/4 cup caramel.
- Reduce heat to low and keep apple mixture warm.
- To assemble: arrange 1 crust wedge on each of 6 plates, then top with 2 small scoops of ice cream and a spoonful of apples and caramel sauce.
- Place a second wedge on top with more ice cream and apple mixture.
- Serve immediately!
