Harvest Apple Pie

This is my 100th post and I had to wait for a recipe to post that was really "100th Post" worthy. And here it is! This is no ordinary apple pie, it's like a caramel apple disguised as a pie! It's amazing! I got the recipe from a friend down in Dayton and just had to try it. It's quite different than my usual trusty apple pie, but just as good.

Harvest Apple Pie
  • Pastry for 2 crusts (9 inch)
  • 6 medium apples (I prefer Granny's for their tartness) peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1 T cornstarch
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 3 T butter, melted
  • 1 t ground cinnamon
  • 3 T sugar
  • 1/3 c. light corn syrup
  • 1/2 c. light brown sugar
  • 3 T light corn syrup
  • 1/4 c chopped nuts (opt)
  • 2 T flour
  • 2 T butter, softened
-- In a large bowl, mix the filling ingredients. Dump the sliced apples in and stir to coat.
-- Fill the pie plate (with the bottom crust in, of course) with the apples.
-- Place top crust on, vent, and bake for 30-35 minutes at 425. Watch the top crust so it doesn't burn!
-- Combine the topping ingredients and spread over the pie crust.
-- Return to oven and bake an additional 10 minutes or until topping is bubbly. (Put a cookie sheet under the pie to catch the drippings and save you from cleaning your oven!)
