Dulce de Leche Apple Pie

I recently participated in a ladies only all apple baking day.  One of the things we made was a dulce de leche apple pie. I was surprised at how easy this was to make, and the result was to die for.  I recommend making this if you want to mix things up in the apple pie world.

Dulce de Leche Apple Pie


7 cups of sliced apples (we mixed two types of apples, this works best)
1/2 cup dulce de leche (we were too scared to make our own, so we bought some in the Latin food section of the supermarket)
2 tbsp. apple cider
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
pinch of salt
1 box of pie crust mix (for two crusts)
1 egg white mixed with 1 tsp. water


Step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees and mix the apples, dulce de leche, cider and vanilla together
Step 2: Mix the sugars, cornstarch, spices and salt in a separate bowl and then mix the apples with the dry mix
Step 3:  Make one pie crust and place in the bottom of a pie plate
Step 4: Add the apple mixture and add the second pie crust on top
Step 5: Brush crust with egg white
Step 6: Cover pie in foil and bake for 40 minutes
Step 7: Reduce heat to 375 and remove foil and bake for 30-40 more minutes
Step 8: Cool, and eat with a huge scoop of ice cream!
