Caramel Crunch Apple Pie

Comment on this recipe

I won first place in a pie contest with this recipe and it is absolutely delicious.

Ingredients

Pastry for 9 pie crust
3/4 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar (may add more if desired)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
4 cups sliced, peeled apples (any good baking apple)
1 small jar (10 oounces) caramel ice cream topping

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll pastry to 12 circle, place in pie plate and flute edges Mix together flour, sugar and cinnamon. Cut butter into mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs, blend in walnuts. Stir this combination and the sliced apples together very well. Pour into pie shell. Pour caramel sauce over apples and flour mixture evenly. Bake 40 to 45 minutes until apples are tender. Serves approximately 6 to 8 (delicious with scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of hot pie).
