Recipe: Apple and caramel pie dessert

Apple--Caramel-Pie>

Method

For the crust:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Coat the bottom and inside of a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray.
  3. At medium-low speed, beat the flour and the dough until combined.
  4. Press sugar cookie dough onto sides and bottom of pan, creating a ¼ inch thick crust. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  5. Reduce the oven temperature to 180°C. Bake the crust for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

For the filling:

  1. Toss the apples with sugar, flour, ginger, and cinnamon. Spoon into pan.
  2. Sprinkle with caramel.
  3. Cover tightly with foil.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes.

For the crumb topping:

  1. While pie is baking, in a mixing bowl at low speed, combine flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
  2. Increase speed to medium; gradually add butter and vanilla, beating until wet crumbs form.
  3. Remove pie from oven and uncover.
  4. Using your hands, press tablespoons of the crumb mixture together to form large crumbs.
  5. Place over filling, covering the entire surface.
  6. Cover exposed edges of crust with aluminum foil to prevent burning.
  7. Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes or until lightly browned.
  8. Cool on a rack and remove sides from the pan.
  9. Stir together the confectioners' sugar with enough water to make "icing." Transfer to a plastic food storage bag, snip one corner and drizzle over crumbs.
