Chef John's Caramel Apple Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2012
This pie is absolutely delicious!! Just a note about it being too watery: If you aren't doing a lattice top crust, it will definitely be too watery, because not enough liquid can steam out. I don't recommend doing a crust die, either, unless it's one that cuts out about half of the crust, because it will otherwise not release enough steam. Additionally, you should allow the caramel sauce to cool quite a bit before adding it to the pie, to the point where it's like a thick syrup. The added cooling allows for more water to evorate from there as well. Also, don't cut your apples too small, or they will release even more liquid as they begin to break down; I suggest no more than six slices per apple. This helps keep it from turning into an applesauce filling as well. Finally, the pie MUST cool completely before you cut it. This will allow the apples to take up some of the liquid they released before, allow even more liquid to evaporate, as well as allow the sugars to congeal. That's it! Enjoy this delicious pie!!
