More About This Recipe
  • You’ll notice that this caramel apple pie features a lattice-crust topping. A lattice topping is much easier than it looks and is the perfect way to finish off your apple pie. All you have to do is cut your second crust into ½-inch strips and weave the top strips over and under the bottom strips, alternating. If that seems too ambitious for you, there are a few other simple tricks you can use to produce a beautiful top crust. For a shiny crust, brush with a tablespoon of milk before baking. For a crispy, sugared crust, brush with a tablespoon of milk or water and sprinkle a tablespoon of sugar on top before baking. You could also make a glazed crust. To do that, brush the top of the dough with a beaten egg before baking. There’s more apple pie hacks where that came from. 411 on how to make the most perfect apple pie every time!
