Upside-Down Caramel Apple Pie

"I have been in search of a recipe for a homemade caramel apple pie to duplicate the toes curling, eyes rolling, I am going to die from sheer pleasure taste of the caramel apple pie The Fresh Market makes. (I know a mass produced supermarket pie that is to die for! I turned up my nose at it until my father made me take a bite of his and then I had to have my own.) This isn't it but it is still a very yummy caramel apple pie and it is upside-down to boot which makes it stand out from just a regular pie on a holiday table or for guests. I found this recipe in an old Pampered Chef book and have made it with great results and received many compliments and recipe requests."

Ready In:
1hr 20mins
1 pie




  • Preheat oven to 425.
  • For glaze combine brown sugar, butter, and corn syrup and spread evenly in Stoneware Pie Plate. (These are the only pie plates I use and have never had anything but good results. Not sure if the pie will stick in a different type of pie plate.) Sprinkle pecans evenly over sugar mixture and top with 1 pie crust. Set aside.
  • For filling combine brown sugar, butter, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a bowl and set aside. Peel, core, and thinly slice apples and sprinkle with lemon juice.
  • Place half the apples on pastry-lined pie plate and sprinkle with half the brown sugar mixture. Repeat layers and place remaining crust over the top. Fold edges of top crust under the edge of the bottom crust to seal and flute edges. Cut several slits in top.
  • Bake 50-60 minutes or until golden and apples are done. Let stand for about 5 minutes and then carefully loosen edges and invert pie onto serving plate. Scrape any of the remaining caramel topping onto the pie. Cool for at least 1 hour before serving.

It would be hard for me to choose between my two favorite hobbies, cooking and reading, so frequently I compromise and read a cookbook! My husband thinks we have an annex of the public library in our house there are so many books.
