Apple Caramel Pie - Whispering Canyon Cafe, Disney's Wilderness Lodge

Just in time for Thanksgiving, here's a pie that fit for the holidays. A clever twist on the classic apple pie, this dessert can usually be found delighting guests at Disney's Wilderness Lodge. It's easy to make, and so, so, so delicious.


½ cup all purpose flour
13-oz package refrigerated sugar cookie dough

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Coat the bottom and inside of a 9 inch pan with nonstick cooking spray.
3. Beat the flour and dough until combined.
4. Press sugar cookie dough into sides and bottom of pan.

Pie Filling

2 ½ pounds apples (take your pick – I used Cortlands), peeled, cored, and thinly sliced.
½ cup granulated sugar
1/8 cup all purpose flour
¾ tablespoon chopped candied ginger
¾ teaspoon cinnamon
¾ cup caramel topping

1. In a mixing bowl, toss the apples with sugar, flour, ginger, and cinnamon. Spoon into prepared crust.

2. Spoon on caramel topping.

3. Cover with foil and bake for one hour.

 Crumb Topping

2 ¼ cups all purpose flour
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup dark brown sugar, packed
1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
1 ½ sticks butter, melted
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
¾ cup confectioners’ sugar

1. While the pie is baking, combine flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
2. Gradually add butter and vanilla, until wet crumbs form.

3. Remove pie from oven and uncover.
4. Sprinkle crumb mixture over the top of the warm pie.
5. Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned.

6. Allow the pie to cool, then mix the confectioners sugar with enough water to make icing. Drizzle over the top of the pie, and enjoy!

Was this adapted from the Delicious Disney Cookbook or the Deliciously Dessert Cookbook? I fell in love with this apple pie and was wondering which publication it was in.
