1 recipe Pastry for Single-Crust Pie (see below)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1/2 cup butter

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
6 cups thinly sliced, peeled cooking apples

1/4 cup caramel ice-cream topping


Prepare Pastry for Single-Crust Pie. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to a
12-inch circle. Transfer pastry to a 9-inch pie plate. Ease pastry into pie plate,
being careful not to stretch pastry. Trim; crimp edge as desired.

For Crumb Topping, stir together brown sugar, 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, and the oats.

Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until the topping mixture resembles coarse
crumbs. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl stir together the granulated sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, the
cinnamon, and salt. Add apple slices and gently toss until coated. Transfer apple
mixture to the pastry-lined pie plate. Sprinkle Crumb Topping over apple mixture.

To prevent overbrowning, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for
25 minutes. Remove foil. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes more or until top is golden. Remove
from oven; sprinkle pie with pecans, then drizzle with caramel topping. Cool on a wire

Pastry for Single-Crust Pie: In a bowl stir together 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour and
1/4 teaspoon salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in 1/3 cup shortening until pieces are
pea-size. Using 4 to 5 tablespoons cold water total, sprinkle 1 tablespoon of water at
a time over the flour mixture, tossing with a fork until all of the dough is moistened.

Form dough into a ball.
