  • 1 9 inch frozen pie crust

For the topping

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter, diced
  • ¼ cup brown sugar

For the filling

  • ½ stick unsalted butter, (2oz)
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 Granny Smith apples
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp cornstarch


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Bake the pie crust for 10 minutes and set aside.
  • Combine the flour, butter and brown sugar for the topping.
  • Rub the ingredients together until it feels like sand and begins to clump together, set aside in the fridge.
  • In a large pan, melt the butter and add the brown sugar over a medium heat.
  • Once the mixture begins to boil, add the cream and whisk quickly until the caramel sauce becomes smooth.
  • Turn off the heat and add the vanilla, whisk.
  • Peel the apples and cut into chunks about an 1 ½ inch square, transfer to a bowl.
  • Add ¼ cup brown sugar and the cornstarch to the apples and toss well.
  • Transfer the apples to the pie crust and pour the caramel sauce over the apples.
  • Sprinkle the crumb topping over the apples and place the pie on a baking tray.
  • Bake for about 45-50 minutes and the crumb is golden and the apples are bubbling around the edges. Cover the pie loosely with foil if it begins to brown too much.
  • Let the pie rest for at least an hour and serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream on top.
