Deep Dish Caramel Apple Pie
Apple Fest Week is happening this week and this next recipe is out of this world! Deep Dish Caramel Apple Pie is wonderfully delicious. Two refrigerated pie crusts are used to line a 9-inch springform pan. Then canned or homemade pie filling is spooned into the prepared pan and the apples are drizzled with caramel sauce. A combination of oats, brown sugar, butter, flour and ground cinnamon are sprinkled on the top and baked until golden brown.
An Apple A Day
The old saying, “An apple a day, keeps the Doctor away” may have some truth to it. Apples are a good source of fiber and vitamins A and C. They’re also rich in the powerful flavonoid quercetin, which acts as an antioxidant. Apples may help prevent some cancers and protect the arteries and heart. Eating an apple vs drinking apple juice. Whole fruit is better than apple juice, which loses 80% of its quercetin during processing. Fresh is always Best.
Serve Deep Dish Caramel Apple Pie with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, Cinnamon Ice Cream or Caramel Swirl Ice Cream for a decadent dessert.
