What’s better than a warm, comforting apple pie? Salted caramel apple pie, that’s what.
I’ve been wanting to try this recipe out for a while now and always knew it would be good (how could caramel + apple pie not be good?) but after tasting it, I think it might be one of the most delicious things I’ve ever tasted!
Adding a dollop of coconut milk ice cream on top and a drizzling of my 5-minute vegan salted caramel sauce and I was in total heaven. YUM.
I’m a little disappointed that I didn’t share this sooner this year because it would make the most amazing Thanksgiving dessert. But, of course, it works wonderfully as a Christmas dessert too or just a great dessert all year round.
Now onto the recipe…
Please don’t think that this apple pie is complicated because it really isn’t. The pastry can be whizzed up in a food processor, then it’s a simple matter of splitting it in half and rolling out one piece for the bottom of the pie dish and another for the top. Lattice and other decorative elements are totally optional, but again it’s much easier than you’d think! I love this simple lattice pastry tutorial.
The caramel sauce really couldn’t be any quicker or easier and I suppose the most time-consuming part is peeling and chopping the apples!
As you can see, my apple pie isn’t perfect but (and I know this sounds like a cop-out) it’s not meant to be… Apple pie is a rustic, homey dessert and as long as it tastes good, then you’re going to love it.
