Course Dessert
Cuisine American

Ingredients
  

  • 2 Simple Pie Crusts (unbaked!) http://breepair.com/simple-no-fail-pie-crust-3-ingredients
  • 7-8 Granny Smith Apples
  • ½ Cup Granulated Sugar
  • ¼ Cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Lemon Zest* *If you forget to buy a lemon, it's okay, I've made it without and it's still good.
  • ½ tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ½ Cup Bourbon Caramel Sauce
  • Vanilla Ice Cream or Homemade Whipped Topping* *Optional, but delicious to add to the top of your pie!

Instructions
 

  • First, make your pie crust using the simple pie crust recipe.
  • Then, make your bourbon caramel sauce following this recipe.
  • Preheat your oven to 400°
  • Peel your apples, slice them longways, and cut in half so they're in bite-size pieces.
  • Add your apple pieces to a large mixing bowl.
  • Add in all the rest of the ingredients to the apples, except for the caramel sauce, and mix it with a spoon until the apples are all well coated and the mixture is distributed evenly.
  • Add your caramel sauce on top and mix until distributed evenly.
  • Roll out your pie crust into your favorite pie dish, then gently pour your apple pie filling into the crust.
  • Top your pie with remaining pie dough however you'd like, for the picture attached to this recipe I doubled the pie dough and put a layer over the top. Decorate it however you'd like!
  • Bake for 30 minutes, then cover the top with foil so the crust doesn't burn.
  • Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until apples are tender.
  • Serve warm or chilled, topped with ice cream or whipped cream, and of course, a drizzle of the leftover bourbon caramel sauce.
