It was fall and I was craving a caramel apple. My husband loves apple pie. I love to experiment with food, so this recipe is the result.


  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups flour
  • 1 tblsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup boiling water
  • 8 small apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1-16 oz carton of sour cream
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. cinnnamon
  • 2 tblsp. Caramel ice-cream topping


  • Mix 1 1/2 cup flour, sugar and salt together in a large bowl. Add shortening and cream all ingredients together with a fork.
  • Add boiling water and stir.
  • Add enough additional flour to mixture to create pie dough consistency. Roll out and place in pie pan.
  • Mix egg yolks, sour cream, sugar, flour and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Add apples and mix together.
  • Pour into prepared pie pan. Place pie pan on baking sheet and put in a preheated 375 degree oven for approximately 1 hour.
  • Put caramel ice-cream topping in the micowave for a few seconds – enough to make it soft.
  • Drizzle over pie.
  • Completely cool and place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours or until cold.
  • TIP: If the crust starts to get too dark, cover the crust edges with foil.
