Apple pie is probably the most incredible fall dessert there is. Don’t fight me on this.
Unless you’re suggesting that salted caramel apple pie is the best fall dessert there is. In that case, I completely agree with you.
Sarah Carey with Martha Stewart’s Everyday Food created an awesome recipe for just that, and here’s how to make it.
For the caramel, you’ll need:
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 4 tbsp. unsalted butter
- 1 1/4 tsp. coarse salt
For the pie itself, you will need:
- Pie crust, such as this Martha Stewart recipe.
- 3 lbs. (or 6-7) baking apples of choice (she used Granny Smith & McIntosh)
- 2 tbsp. lemon juice
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 1/2 cup sugar

To make the pie, you’ll first need to create the caramel. That starts with browning the sugar with some water on medium heat, and once it goes brown, add the heavy cream.
It will bubble up, so make sure you have a deep pot. Take that off the heat.
Once that settles down a little bit, add your 4 tbsp. of butter and let it melt in. Stir and add your salt, stirring that. Let that cool completely while creating your pie filling.
