Dulce de Leche Apple Pie

Posted on: February 13, 2010

Eric loves apple pie so I’m always looking for a new recipe to try. I love dulce de leche so this recipe immediately caught my eye!

Ingredients
3 granny smith apples, cored, peeled, and sliced
1/2 cup dulce de leche*
2 tablespoons apple cider
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
pinch of salt
2 pie crusts
1 egg white mixed with 1 teaspoon of water

Directions
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Toss the apples in the dulce de leche, cider and vanilla,

Mix the sugars, cornstarch, spices and salt in a large bowl.

Combine the apples with the sugar mixture.

Fit one of the pie crusts into a 9 inch pie plate and pour the apples in.

Fit the remaining pie crust on top and brush with the egg white mixture.

Cover with foil and bake in a preheated 400F oven for 40 minutes.

Reduce heat to 375F, remove the foil and bake until golden brown, about 30-40 minutes.

*You can either buy the dulce de leche at the store or make your own using sweetened condensed milk. I got impatient only cooked mine for three hours, and it was delicious!
