Apple pie, America’s favorite. Packed full of cinnamon coated apples in a thick caramel glaze makes it positively delicious. This homemade Caramel Apple Pie Filling makes it so easy to make your own.
I have mentioned before that the hubs grew up in an orchard. It’s actually this gorgeous little place called Apple Hill. Imagine it…..fall colors everywhere, orchards lining every street you turn down & the smell of apple pie is a constant aroma. Yes – it was wonderful for him growing up. So it’s no wonder that I have had to perfect my apple & cinnamon recipes through the years. Things like this Caramel Apple Pie Filling make it so easy to whip up something for him that tastes just like home.
I love spending a couple hours on a Saturday peeling & coring a ton of apples & making several batches of this. I keep a jar in the fridge all through the fall season- the extra jars keep in the freezer. That way they are ready when one jar runs out. It’s so great for adding on top of ice cream, making pastries or whipping up a quick apple pie. Sometimes I even let the kids add it to their oatmeal or yogurt in the morning. It’s FABULOUS!
