A Tasty Twist to the Classic Apple Pie Recipe


apple pie recipe Who doesn’t love a classic apple pie after a Thanksgiving feast? While we love classic apple pie– including Dutch apple pie, and pumpkin pie and even blueberry pie and coconut custard pie, and…okay, clearly the list goes on–sometimes it’s nice to veer from the classic Thanksgiving pie recipe.

Enter Family Kitchen blogger, Angie McGowan. Luckily for us, she made this delicious twist on classic apple pie. She wrote in her original post:

This isn’t a traditional apple pie, it’s better. It’s an ooey, gooey, delicious apple filling topped with a crunchy pecan topping. It’s a nice spin on the traditional all-American apple pie.

Her recipe after the jump…

Caramel Apple Pie with Pecans

For the Crust

1/2 cup butter (1 stick), sliced in pats
1 1/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2-3 tablespoons water or Apple Jack Brandy

For the Pie Filling
6 apples, peeled or not and thinly sliced (I used 8 because I made a deep dish pie)
1 cup unpacked brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon (roasted if possible)
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons tapioca flour (if you used 8 apples, use 4 tablespoons tapioca flour here)
