Amazing pie. I used a little of everyones suggestions, and would only try one different thing next time. Here's what I did:
Used a variety of apples, including Pink Lady, Honeycrisp, McIntosh and Cortland. The combination of sweetness/tart and crisp/softer was excellent. I then made Grandma's Secret Pie Crust from this site, and sprinkled the brown sugar/cinnamon on bottom, followed by the ground oatmeal. (A suggestion to keep the bottom crust from getting soggy). I then spread caramel apple dip over that, and filled with the apple mixture - spooning in so I didnt have too much juice... made a lattice crust and baked.
The pie was gone that day. I had worried about the caramel oozing out of the lattice, but that didnt happen at all (so the lattice was gorgeous) but the caramel didnt melt into the apples at all, rather stayed at the bottom completely. Next time, I think I will either spoon a little of the juice in, or put the caramel on top, and not worry about the lattice. Either way, it was much better microwaved at the end of the day, to warm up the caramel.
Delicious pie. Thanks so much for the recipe, and reviewer advice! Thanksgiving tradition from now on!
