Caramel Apple Pie

Hello everybody!

Can you believe that it’s almost the middle of March? I can’t. I feel like we just started this month, but then I keep thinking that it’s April. Maybe it’s because I want it to be my birthday?? 🙂

Anywho.

It’s almost Pi Day too!! Woot woot for pie!

Actually, I’m not a huge pie fan. *GASP* I like cake and cuppy cakes and cookies a lot more than I do with pie. I don’t know what it is, I just don’t really like the crust of the pie, maybe that’s it.

I probably should make more pie, I mean, you can put fruit in it and that makes it healthy right? Right?Right??

Actually so funny story. I had a personal trainer session at our gym and the young dude asked me what I liked to do outside of babysitting my kids—because I mentioned I am a SAHM. yeah, I know, pfft…–and I jokingly said: Umm…eat cupcakes? And he wrote down on his little piece of paper, needs to work on diet.

Ouch.

Anyway, Mr. Newman would probably agree that I do indeed need to make more pie, because its his favorite thing, and he probably will tell me this once he reads my post. I only like pie for Thanksgiving and that’s basically it. I mean, if someone offered me pie, I’d probably eat it but I’ prefer cake over pie any day.

Enough of this talk. To the pie!

When I was getting supplies for this pie, I got everything except for this apple pie spice stuff that you’re supposed to mix in, and I kind of panicked because I was already committed to making this and couldn’t leave because Chunky Monkey was sleeping. Plan B right? I just mixed in some cinnamon, nutmeg and all-spice. But if you have apple pie spice, go ahead and use it.

This recipe also calls for a spring form pan, again, I panicked because I wasn’t sure if I had a round one. Luckily, my MIL gave me hers when she was cleaning house. If you don’t have one these little fellas, that’s ok, you can just use a regular pie pan. Anyway, you’ll want to mix up your flour and refrigerated sugar cookie dough and press it into the pan. Like so..

Throw together some flour, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla and spices with your cut, cored and peeled apples.

Pour some yummy yummy caramel on top of that.

Toss that into the oven for a good 45 minutes.

While that’s baking toss together your topping mixture and then toss that on top of the pie once the 45 minutes is up.
