With a rich and buttery crust, a generous layer of caramel, and a mouthwatering streusel topping, this pie is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth and delight your taste buds.

To start with, you’ll need the following ingredients for the crust:
– 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 teaspoon sugar
– 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
– 1/4 cup ice water

To make the crust, mix the flour, salt, and sugar in a large bowl. Cut in the butter using a pastry cutter or your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add the ice water, mixing until the dough comes together. Form the dough into a ball, flatten it into a disk, and wrap it in plastic wrap. Chill for at least 30 minutes.

While the dough is chilling, you can prepare the filling. You’ll need:
– 6 cups thinly sliced and peeled Granny Smith apples (about 6 apples)
– 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
– 1/4 cup granulated sugar
– 2 tablespoons lemon juice
– 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
– 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– 1/4 cup caramel sauce

Combine the sliced apples, flour, sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl. Toss until the apples are evenly coated. Set aside.

When the dough is ready, preheat your oven to 375°F. Roll out the dough on a floured surface and transfer it to a 9-inch pie dish. Trim the edges and crimp as desired. Prick the bottom of the crust with a fork. Spread the caramel sauce on the bottom of the crust, then add the apple mixture on top.

For the streusel topping, you’ll need:
– 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
– 1/2 cup rolled oats
– 1/2 cup brown sugar
– 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces

Combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the streusel on top of the apple mixture.

Bake the pie for 45-50 minutes, or until the crust and streusel are golden brown and the filling is bubbly. Let cool on a wire rack for at least 30 minutes before serving.
