    Annacia's Note:

    Four pounds of apples go into this towering pie -- but you don't have to peel a single one. Just slice the fruit and pile it up. Warm caramel sauce drizzled on top provides extra sweetness.

      We really enjoyed the flavor of this pie, the tartness of the apple with the sweetness of the caramel. I cut the recipe in half to make a smaller pie except for the cinnamon, I used a bit more than half and I added about 1/2 tsp of nutmeg. Making this again I would peel the apples, though there weren't a lot, my DH said finding the peels in his pie was like finding bones in his fish, and it really bothered him. I only added the caramel to individual slices of pie, so everyone could control their own level of sweetness. I wasn't sure if the extra baking steps made a difference flavorwise compared to my regular pie, I may have to make it again really soon to decide : ) Thanks Annacia for another lovely recipe.

      I agree with bmcnichol...this is time consuming but the flavors are worth the extra effort. This is especially good warmed up and served with a scoop (or two) of vanilla ice cream drizzled with more of the caramel topping. Made for Photo Tag Nov, 2009.

      Wow this was good. This was time consuming to make but well worth it. Everyone enjoyed it. I followed the recipe as written other then I used Splenda brown sugar as that is all I buy. I am not a big pie eater but this was wonderful. We topped it with ice cream.
