With the Fourth of July around the corner, the old saying “As American As Apple Pie” always comes to mind. Patriotism and celebration are my memories of the 4th of July and in that celebration, there was always apple pie! So, of course it only seems fitting to have one of my favorite apple pie recipes on the blog as Independence Day approaches.
My mom has been making this recipe for years and for good reason…it’s delicious. Every holiday we have this caramel apple crumble pie. A piece of this apple pie with a scoop of ice cream out on a patio can take me back to the days of parades, candy, penny hunts in sawdust, amusement rides and fireworks. 4th of July was my favorite holiday growing up and still is today.
This pie has a delicious crumble top with caramel layered in it as well which makes it the best (in my opinion). A fun twist on the typical Dutch apple pie. Delicious!
