When you think of the holidays, you think of pie! There is just something about the holidays that makes me think of a good pecan pie! or maybe it is apple pie? or maybe it is caramel apple pie? How about a Caramel Apple Pecan Pie? Now, that sounds terrific!
You don't have to fuss when it comes to make a beautiful festive pie. It only takes a few ingredients and you can have a delicious bragging rights kind of pie!
All you need is a deep dish pie crust, apple pie filling, caramel sauce, a little brown sugar, pecans, and some bourbon vanilla. If you don't have the bourbon vanilla, you can add in some regular vanilla.
I've been using the Bourbon vanilla the most lately. It really does have a rich flavor. It pairs great in cookies, pies, or cakes.
This pie came out great! The photos make you want to jump through the screen and grab it. For my pecans, I used the honey roasted pecans. I'll give you a little hint. They are priced better if you grab them with salad topper section at Wal-Mart!
Here's the scoop on the pie!
1 Maria Calendar's deep dish pie crust (or whatever deep dish)
1 Comstock Apple Pie Filling
1 1/2 Teaspoons of Bourbon Vanilla
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
2 cups pecan halves
Heat oven to 375 Degrees
In a large mixing bowl add in the one can of apple pie filling, brown sugar & vanilla.
Mix together and put on top of your deep dish pie crust.
Arrange pecan halves on top to cover pie.
Bake at 375 for about 20-25 minutes until crust is golden brown. Let cool for approximately 1 hour before serving.
It's that easy!
