  • Crust:
  • 16.5 ounces refrigerated sugar cookie dough (we used Pillsbury)
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • Filling:
  • 2 1/2 pounds apples, peeled cored and sliced thin (Honey Crisp or Granny Smith works great)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/8 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Apple Pie Spice
  • 1 1/4 cups caramel topping
  • Topping:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons apple pie spice
  • 1/2 cup butter


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a 10 inch springform pan or a pan similar to that size with an edge.
  2. Mix the cookie dough and flour in a bowl until combined well. Press into the bottom of the pan and go up the side of the pan about 3/4 inch. Make sure it's completely covered with no holes.
  3. In a mixing bowl toss the apples with sugar, flour, and apple pie spice and then turn into the prepared crust and carefully spread out evenly. Drizzle 3/4 cup caramel topping over the apple mixture. Cover with aluminum foil and cook for about 45 minutes.
  4. While the pie is baking, combine flour, brown sugar, sugar, vanilla and apple pie spice. Then cut in the butter mixture and mix until if forms a wet crumb mixture.
  5. Remove pie from oven and take off the foil. Sprinkle crumb mixture over the warm pie. Put bake in the oven and do not cover. Continue baking for another 15 to 20 minutes or until the topping is lightly browned.
  6. Allow the pie to cool and then remove springform pan sides. When ready to serve slice the pie and then drizzle with additional caramel topping.

  1. I made this on Sunday, smelled and looked great , my question, when I cut it it had to much juice /liquid. This made it hard to serve. Any suggestions? I used a spring form pan, my apples were not wet , when mixed with the flour mixture, and I cooled the pie completely prior to removing it from the pan? The only diversion from you recipe was to use Maintosh apples, Thanks for the great recipes... Wanda

    I have two questions. First, I've never made caramel. Am I missing the directions for making it in this recipe? Second, regarding the use of a pie pan. I have a deep-dish pie pan that I'd like to use. Any reason I shouldn't if I can come up at least an inch from the bottom? I'm hoping to make this for July 4th weekend, so trying to prepare now. :-) Thanks for the help!
    • Hi Christi, This recipe calls for caramel topping (the caramel you would use on top of ice cream). No homemade caramel. We added some Kraft caramels in the picture. And your pie pan should work great! I hope this helps you and have a great 4th of July weekend!
