    I changed a couple of things. First I only cooked the crust for 5 min. This didn’t cause it to be overlooked by the time it was done. Second, because I wasn’t paying attention, I added the caramel in with the apples and mixed. Then I added the caramels on top also. Turned out pretty good. Haven’t heard any complaints from my family so I guess they like it also

    I made this for Bunko years ago and everyone loved it...I had added less ginger (just because I don't like it in my apple pies) and used a pecan tart crust - it was amazing.<br/>Then I promptly lost the recipe and searched forever for it...so glad I found it again. Can't wait to make it this weekend!!! It is wonderful!

    This recipe sounded so good so I tried it for the holidays. There are two problems with it. The ginger flavor is very strong and I think I would leave it out next time. Also, the crust turns out very hard and difficult to cut or eat. I think this is because it is baked more than once. I'm not sure how to alleviate this problem.
