Gateway Pie


Who only has one pie crust in their fridge or freezer right now? Go on…raise your hand! No shame in using one for a quiche or something and having one left over. But I’m here to show you what to do with it!


Peel, cut and slice some apples….


Toss with 1/3 of a cup of sugar and your own blend of apple pie spice. Leave in a bowl and let the slices sit for about 45 minutes. Spoon them into the open pie crust and trim the edge of the crust. I rolled the excess back out and made some polka dots with the extra for decoration. Bake as you normally would.


Take the excess juice that drains from the apples and sugar and add to a saucepan with 1/2 stick of butter.


Add a teaspoon of this magic ingredient and stir to dissolve.


Add heavy cream and bring to a boil to reduce until caramel will coat the back of a spoon.

Pour the caramel over the baked pie and wait for it to set up. Trust me it’s a gateway pie.

I recommend serving with ice cream, salted caramel of course….
