Mile-High Caramel Apple Pie

Mile-High Caramel Apple Pie created by Annacia

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.
