Menu Monday: Caramel Apple Pie

One of my stand-by desserts, served nearly every holiday, is this Caramel Apple Pie.  It never fails and is absolutely amazing reheated with some vanilla ice cream.  Enjoy!

Crust for a single crust pie (either homemade or use the Pillsbury like I do)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
3 Tbsp all purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
6 cups thinly sliced, peeled Granny Smith apples
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup caramel topping

1.  Place crust into pie plate.
2.  Crumb topping:  stir together brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour, and oats.  Use pastry blender to cut in butter until course crumbs.  Set aside.

3.  In a large bowl, stir together sugar, 3 Tbsp flour, cinnamon and salt.  Add apple slices and gently toss until coated.  Put on crust.  Sprinkle crumb topping over mixture.
4.  To prevent over browning, cover edge of pie with foil or pie shield.  Bake at 375* for 25 minutes.  Remove foil.  Bake another 25-30 minutes more until golden.  Remove from oven and sprinkle with pecans and drizzle with caramel.  Cool on a wire rack.

This is by far my favorite type of pie.  What's yours?
