Ahhh. Insatiable pregnancy cravings. I woke up in the middle of the night and just HAD to have apple pie and ice cream. So, I made some.. Yes, in the middle of the night. And it was GOOD. I've made this pie before but read a review recommending to double the caramel sauce, mixing some with the apples and then using the rest to pour over. I have to say I much prefer sticking to the recipe. Don't double, you'll end up with way too much buttery goo and it'll be over the top sweet and you can't have that because that's what the ice cream is for. I do add one teaspoon of homemade vanilla, and I think this is crucial. It may just be the fact that I'm pregnant, but I could seriously have eaten a whole bowl of the caramel-butter-goo. It's that good. I recommend using a pastry brush to evenly coat the crust when you're pouring the goo over the pie to ensure you get the outer crust without it spilling over. I still recommend that you line the bottom rack with foil, as this tends to drip just a little. I also saw another review saying "the sauce never thickened up." I'm not sure what happened here, but mine came out perfectly fine. It was runny straight out of the oven (couldn't resist), but thickened up just fine. And this is coming from someone who is not the greatest baker. Try it. You won't be disappointed. Mm, mm. SO GOOD!
