- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 4-5 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- ½ cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ cup caramel sauce
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Add the cold, cubed butter and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to work the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Add ice water, one tablespoon at a time, and mix until the dough comes together. Form it into a disc, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Roll out the chilled dough on a floured surface to fit a 9-inch pie dish. Trim any excess dough hanging over the edges.
- In a large mixing bowl, toss the apple slices with lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla extract.
- Arrange the apple slices in the pie crust, drizzle caramel sauce over the top, and fold the edges of the dough over the filling.
- Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the crust is golden brown, and the apples are tender.
- Remove from the oven, let it cool slightly, and serve warm. Optionally, drizzle with more caramel sauce before serving.
