While doing a search (on dejanews) for apple pie with caramel, I came across two recipes I really wanted to try: this one (from Better Homes & Gardens)) and Caramel Crunch Apple Pie. This one was more subtle, but both were great. I guess I'll have to make them over and over and over to decide on a favorite. You can find caramel topping by the ice cream condiments in most supermarkets.Note: I have modified the original post a bit.

For the Apple Mixture
1 deep dish pie crust (9 inch) - prepared
6 medium Granny Smith apples - peeled and sliced
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/8 tablespoon salt
For the Crumb Topping
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup Pecans - chopped
1/4 cup caramel topping

Preheat oven to 375F.

For the Apple Mixture

In large mixing bowl, toss apple slices with lemon juice, sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt until coated. Transfer apple mixture to store bought pie crust.

For the Crumb Topping

In a medium bowl, stir together brown sugar, flour, and oatmeal. Chop butter into small pieces. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into flour mixture until topping mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Assembly

Sprinkle crumb topping over apple mixture. To prevent over browning, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking for 25 to 30 minutes, until top is golden. Remove from oven, sprinkle pie with pecans, then drizzle with caramel topping. Cool on wire rack.
