Fall means pie

My friend Dave had a dinner party tonight that had a Thanksgiving theme so I made a caramel apple pie. I was home in Sebastopol this weekend and picked some apples from my moms' apple tree. We also went on the Sonoma County Farm Trails and picked our own apples. The apples I used were from my moms' yard, what we learned are Vermont green, an heirloom variety. Delicious!

My pie crust recipe is already posted, so here's the filling:
5 c (about 6 medium tart apples diced)
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 C sugar

Caramel filling
1 stick butter (1/2 C)
1 cup brown sugar
2/3 C flour

Mix the apples, cinnamon and sugar. Mix the caramel filling. Layer in the pie crust.

BONUS - add caramel candies for added deliciousness.

The pie was divine! Elsa, you were divine, and looking especially cute in your apron. I'll definitely have to try out this recipe when I get back to Istanbul. Bravo, and love the blog!

Superb! I'm going to make it this coming weekend and have some vanilla ice cream with it. Thank you!
