EASY Caramel Apple Pie - DIY CUSTOM color art - HOMEMADE - SO COOL! Edible Red Apple- Carmal

 Caramel {{AH-MAZING}} Apple Pie!!!!!!

I've made this caramel don't forget {{AH-MAZING}} apple pie a few times but always forget to post the details. Perfect for 4th of July, summer picnic, Thanksgiving, or anything really. These two were for a teacher luncheon. 
It's easy and always a big hit. I owe the eye catching artwork for some of the ooooh's and ahhhh's but it's also delicious or AH-MAZING. I know, I'll stop. :) 

You need:
Apples (peeled and sliced)
Lemon juice 
Pie crust (2 rolls) 
Caramel (melted squared, from a can or homemade)

Usually I'm lazy but if you use two different apples....maybe sweet and tart it turns out so much better. 

Peeled and sliced - I used honey crisp and granny smith.
In a large bowl I mixed apples, cinnamon, lemon juice.

I used the same premade pie dough from my POT PIE recipe.

Roll out the dough in pie pan. Metal, glass, foil. (I bought two foil pie pans since they were for the school)
I used a fork to make holes around the bottom to make sure it cooked through.

 Add apples to pie pan. 

Cover with caramel. 

Homemade caramel sauce.....OH.MY.GOODNESS!!!!!! I absolute LOVE this stuff. I keep a can or two around the house for dipping apples or for ice cream. So good!

If you don't have time you can slowly melt caramel squares or use a can of Dulce de Leche (warm.) It's usually next to condensed sweetened milk cans.

Weave lattice. The trick is to use every other slice for vertical leaving the similar lengths for the horizontal. You will have some extra.

It's much easier without caramel because once you lay one down it sticks in the caramel. I could tell a little bit after baking but if you are looking at the artwork you don't even notice. An for the record you'll notice only because I told you. Dang it! :)

Use the left over dough and roll out to fit my cookie cutter shape. It's about the same thickness as the rolled out pie crust.
 I love making the extra little details and I get to paint.

I used the same food coloring from the CAKE IN A JAR post. 

Just paint on colors evenly and try to cover the entire surface.

It's so easy for a fantastic presentation.

Oven for 

About halfway I put a foil ring to cover the edges so they didn't darken too fast.


The one on the right has the straight cut lines and I almost like it better. 

{{drooling}} It smells so good in the house!!!

Thank you for stopping by!
