Crunchy Caramel Apple Pie

For Pie:

  • pastry for single-crust pie
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 6 cups thinly sliced peeled apples

Crumb Topping:

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • Final Topping:
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping

Prepare pastry for single-crust pie, being careful not to stretch dough too much. Place in pie plate and trim and crimp the edge. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt. Add apple slices and gently toss until they are coated well. Transfer mixture to pie.

FOR CRUMB TOPPING:

Stir together brown sugar, flour, and oats. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter until topping resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over apple mixture in pie. To prevent over-browning while baking, cover edge of pie with foil.

Bake at 375* for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake 25-30 minutes more, or until top is golden. Remove from oven and drizzle top with caramel topping, then sprinkle with pecans. Cool on wire rack and serve.
