Caramel Apple Pecan Pie

This caramel apple pecan pie is SO good. The best Thanksgiving pie recipe I've ever made.

 I’ve been itching to share a bunch of fun recipes with you all, but I couldn’t bring myself to until Halloween passed. So, now that it has been a few days since that fun Holiday, I want to share my favorite pie recipe ever — the Caramel Pecan Apple Pie.

This pie was invented a few years ago by my brother, Daniel, and me. Ever since, it’s been one of my favorite pies to eat. It’s kind of a combination between a pecan pie, and an apple pie…and a caramel apple. It was also when we created an infamous cooking show video that cracks me up every time I watch it. I tried to pull it from Facebook, but I’ve had no luck yet. But when I do, I’ll post it here.

Anyways, this pie is perfect for the person who wants a slice of the pecan pie and the apple pie, but feels like they should only have one. You can have the best of both worlds, and save a little bit in the calorie department (though, be warned, I’m sure this pie has lots of calories. Lots of delicious, caramel-y calories.)


The topping resembles all the thing I love about pecan pies, and the inside is the traditional, warm apples that make every Thanksgiving complete. And the caramel just kind of brings it all together into one delicious recipe.
