Oh happy fall, the season of pumpkin spice lattes and basic bitches frolicking in the leaves
To celebrate, I’m showin’ yaz how to make a salted caramel apple crumble pie
damn that’s a mouthful
…in both senses
okay here we go
1 Pie Crust (homemade or store bought)
5 large apples (a variety!) core em’ peel em’ & slice em’ about 1/4 inch thick
2 tablespoons (30ml) lemon juice
1/4 cup (31g) all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
1/2 cup (100g) packed dark brown sugar (can use light too)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup (94g) all-purpose flour
1/3 (75g) cup unsalted butter, grated
SALTED CARAMEL SAUCE
1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
6 tablespoons (90g) butter, cut up into tablespoons
1/2 cup (120ml) heavy cream
1 teaspoon salt
Make your favorite crust recipe or use store bought!
In a large bowl combine apples & lemon juice
Add in flour, spices, sugar, vanilla paste & stir until combined
Set filling aside while oven preheats 400°F (204°C).
Roll out one disc of chilled dough into a circle
Lay the dough into your pie dish & pinch corners
Fill crust with apple filling, leaving out the liquid
Pop pie into fridge for time being
Mix brown sugar, cinnamon & flour in bowl Grate frozen butter, & using your hands combine it with sugar mix
Pop crumble mix into freezer for 5 minutes, you want cold butter! Once chilled, take pie out of fridge & take crumble out of freezer
Sprinkle crumble over pie & place on baking sheet & bake for 20 min After 20 min, turn the temp down to 375°F (190°C)
Bake for another 30-35 minutes & tent with foil
Cool pie to room temp before serving
SALTED CARAMEL SAUCE
Heat sugar in saucepan over med heat stirring w/ wooden spoon Sugar will melt into an amber-colored liquid, but don’t burn it!
Once sugar is melted, quickly add the butter, 1 tbs at a time.
When added it will bubble up so be careful!
When butter is full combined, add in heavy cream while stirring
Again, it’ll bubble up so be careful!
Let caramel boil for about a minute, keep an eye on it!
After 1 minute, take off the heat & stir in salt.
Let it cool for a min & then CAREFULLY pour into heat safe container Make sure let it cool down before using!
