Classic Apple Pie...With a Twist!
1 (15- oz.) package refrigerated pie crust
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp. flour
1½ tsp. cinnamon
6 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
12 caramels, unwrapped and cut in thirds
2 tbsp. butter
Whipped cream (garnish)
Cinnamon stick (garnish), shaved

Prep: 20 minutes, Cook: 40 to 50 minutes, Serves: 8

1. Preheat oven to 425ºF. Lay 1 crust in the bottom of a 9-inch pie plate.

2. In a medium bowl, stir together sugar, flour and cinnamon. Add apples and toss well. Place half of the apples in the prepared crust; top with half of the caramels. Repeat with remaining apples and caramels; dot top with butter.

3. Roll out crust to make slightly larger and lay over the apples. Turn the crust under and press lightly to seal. Crimp or flute edge decoratively, if desired, and cut several slits in the top. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, covering the edges with foil halfway through the cook time if edges get too brown. Let cool slightly before serving with whipped cream and shaved cinnamon stick.
