A delicious fall dessert using fresh apples from the orchard. Make this salted caramel apple pie to add to your holiday dessert table.
I have to be honest, up until now I was not a from scratch pie crust maker. Way back when I was first married my mother in law said she liked homemade apple pie. I decided it would be nice to bring over her favorite apple pie for dessert.
Needless to say, it took me hours and I had flour all over the kitchen. I never was able to get the crust to come together. I was traumatized and never again tried to make a pie crust until now.
I jumped into this challenge and made a pie crust using a combination of all purpose flour and white whole wheat flour. I figured I should have learned a few things over the past few decades learning to cook and bake to feed my family.
It actually was not too difficult to make pie crust though working with the whole wheat flour was a little bit of a challenge. The dough was dry but I worked through it.
I continued to jump out of my comfort zone and also make this homemade salted caramel sauce. The caramel sauce just added another level of flavor to an otherwise simple but still classic dessert.

Experience can take you where you’ve never been before. If I knew how easy it was to make a pie crust I would have started baking sooner.
