Crunchy Caramel Apple Pie

I have been very bad with my "pie craving"...but here is another great one.  This was a BH&G prize winner from back in the 80's.   Still good and comforting.

Crunchy Caramel Apple Pie

Desserts, fruits, Pies

1  9 pastry crust, unbaked
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
6 cup granny smith apples, peeled
      ----CRUMB TOPPING----
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup rolled oats, quick cooking
      ----TOPPING----
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping

Preheat oven to 375F.

Prepare pastry for crust. On lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 12 inch circle. Transfer pastry to a 9" pie plate. Ease pastry into pie plate, below, being careful not to stretch pastry. Trim, below, crimp edge as desired.

In large mixing bowl, stir together sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Add apple slices and toss until coated. Transfer apple mixture to pastry lined pie plate.

Crumb Topping: Using a pastry blender, cut butter into topping mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle Crumb topping over apple mixture.

To prevent over browning, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake for 25 minutes.  Remove foil and continue baking for 25 to 30 minutes, until top is golden.  Remove from oven, sprinkle pie with pecans, then drizzle with caramel topping. Cool on wire rack.
