Deep Dish Crumb Topped Caramel Apple Pie

I think that I will just let the title of this speak for itself on this one! Remember the stack of recipes that I had talked about before, you know, the ones that you just print off, or rip out of a magazine? Well, this is one of them and the date is 1/03!!! I can't believe that I haven't made it before now!!

Deep Dish Crumb Topped Caramel Apple Pie

Crust:
2 cups pecans, chopped and divided--I used Walnuts
2/3 cups all purpose flour
1 pkg (18 oz) refrigerated sugar cookie dough

Filling:
3 lbs Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, cut into 1/2 inch thick slices
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
8 individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped and quartered

Crumb Topping:
3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup confectioner's sugar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spread pecans on ungreased baking sheet. Bake until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes, cool.

Crust: Coat bottom and inside of 9 inch springform pan with cooking spray. In food processor process 1 cup pecans until finely ground, or finely chop with a knife. At medium -low speed beat flour into dough until combined. Stir in ground pecans. Press dough onto side and bottom of pan, creating scant 1/4 inch thick crust, refrigerate 20 minutes. Reduce oven temp to 350 degrees. Bake crust 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Filling: Toss apples with sugar, flour, cinnamon and remaining pecans; spoon into pan. Sprinkle with chopped caramels. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 45 minutes.

Crumb Topping: Meanwhile, at low speed combine flour, sugars(except confectioner's sugar) and cinnamon. Increase speed to medium; gradually add butter and vanilla, beating until wet crumbs form. Remove pie from oven; uncover. Using hands press tablespoonfuls of crumb mixture together to form large crumbs; place over filling, covering the entire surface. Bake, uncovered, 45 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on rack, remove sides from pan.

Stir together confectioner's sugar and 4 tsp. water until smooth. Drizzle over top of pie.

The first question many people have about links london one way links is why are they so important.If you links of london compared two websites that had exactly the links jewellery same content but one of them had one hundred one way links versus none on the other site links of london uk you would see that the site with one way links had a much better cheap links of london ranking with each search engine. links of london bracelet The primary reason for this is there is no reason for one site links of london charms to link to another without a reciprocating link other than that links of london watches site determines that the website is an authority on it's given niche links of london rings A one way link is when a website links to another site without links of london necklaces asking for a reciprocal link back.
