Caramel Apple Pie

Yes this is as delicious as it sounds!!! I made this for one of our Thanksgiving pies, and almost ate the whole thing myself!!!

1 recipe for 9 inch double pie crust (or just buy the already made ones from pillsbury like I did)
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1/4 c. butter, melted
1/3 c. all purpose flour
5 c. thinly sliced apples ( I used about 6 granny smith's, and I would definitely reccommend a tart apple like this to balance out the sweetness!)
2/3 c. white sugar
3 T. all purpose flour
2 t. ground cinnamon
1 t. lemon juice
20 caramels, halved
2 T. milk

1.Preheat the oven to 375.
2. Make taffy: In a small bowl combine brown sugar, melted butter, and 1/3 c. flour. Mix well and set aside.
3. Make apple filling: Place apples in a large bowl. Add white sugar, 3 T. flour, cinnamon, and lemon juice. Toss until all ingredients are mixed and appled are coated well.
4. Line your 9 inch pie plate with bottom crust. Spoon half of apple filling into pie plate. Top with half of caramels, and half of taffy mixture. Repeat process with remaining apples, taffy and caramels. Place top pastry over filling and SEAL WELL ( or caramel filling will leak out!). Cut steam vents in top and brush with milk or light cream.
5. cover pie with foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 20-25 minutes, until crust is golden brown. Serve warm.
