Dulce de Leche Apple Pie

Dulce de Leche Apple Pie

The reason that I was so enthusiastic about making the dulce de leche was that I had recently seen this recipe for a dulce de leche apple pie on The Cooking Photographer that looked so good. Caramel and apples go so well together and with the thought of a caramely dulce de leche apple pie there was no way that I could resist making it! With so many apples at the farmers market these days it was the perfect time to make the pie and I used a mixture of different types of those wonderful varieties of apples. This pie was pretty easy to make with you only needing to mix the apples, dulce de leche and a few other ingredients, assembling the pie and baking it. The hardest part is waiting for the pie to finish baking and then letting it cool while you are intoxicated with its heavenly aroma. The dulce de leche turned out amazingly well and it was very tempting to have seconds of dessert each night! The dulce de leche and apple flavour combination is just as good as the caramel and apple combo and I look forward to using this combo again! Of course I served the dulce de leche apple pie with a scoop of melting vanilla ice cream.

Hungry Dog said...

Sounds incredible. Homemade dulce de leche? Good grief, that sounds divine.

Allison Arevalo said...

Wow! This seriously looks out of this world! What kinds of apples did you use? There are almost too many kinds to chose from - I'm not sure what to pick. Thanks for the recipe!

mara said...

That sounds like a great way to change up apple pie. I will have to keep that in mind...

Nina Timm said...

I find the additions of apple cider quite interesting......another great pie recipe!!!

Rachael said...

Oh my! I JUST made some cajeta today for the candy on my blog and I'm sure it would work great in this recipe instead of the dulce de leche! Thanks a ton Kevin!

Joanne said...

I'm pretty sure I would not be able to resist seconds! This looks amazing.

Mommy's Kitchen said...

This looks so pretty and so good. I love dulce de leche. I made a cheesecake for Thanksgiving using it.

Ben said...

I had a similar pie this past weekend, but yours sound a lot better.

Anncoo said...

Can I have one slice, please?

Aparna said...

Myust say that apple pie looks even more delicious with the dulche leche!
Time to make apple pie, I'm thinking.

Dawn said...

Good Lord Kevin you kill me. My stars.

James said...

Delicious isn't it! Takes the humble apple pie to a new level. Started making these a couple of months ago for a restaurant. Rather than boiling the condensed milk in the tin I boil up 3.15kg condensed milk, 750g dark brown sugar & 750g butter. That's enough for 96 people though - you probably want to convert it to US/ Canadian measurments & scale it down :-)

Only found the essential addition of cornflour a couple of weeks ago - soaks up the juice from the apples as the pie cooks.

Jenn@slim-shoppin said...

I had no idea that dulce de leche was just condensed milk that had simmered for a long time!

That looks fantastic!

Faith said...

This sounds like a fantastic combination! I'm going to check out your dulce de leche recipe!

Cakebrain said...

Great use of dulce de leche! Looks amazing!

The Duo Dishes said...

Yes, this would be the one to win over everybody!

meaghan said...

This looks wonderful!
I've been craving apple pie... did you find the dulce de leche overly sweet? I like desserts, but don't usually like things that are REALLY really sweet.
I imagine that the tartness of the apples would help to balance it?
Another great post, Kevin!

Kevin said...

Allison Arevalo: I uses some spies and some honey crisp apples in this apple pie.

meaghan: I did not find it overly sweet. You are right the the tart and juicy apples balanced the sweetness of the dulce de leche nicely.

Culinary Cory said...

I LOVE apple pies. They are totally my favorite dessert.

The Cooking Photographer said...

Kevin I didn't realize you made this pie! Thank-you!

David Lebowitz makes dulce de leche in the oven - no scary boiling a can stove top for me. I cant wait to make this pie!

Rookie Bebe said...

my can of milk is almost done simmering and I'm preparing to make the pie. CAN'T WAIT! I will write again and let you know how it turns out.

Jaime said...

I LOVE caramel and apples - what a delicious looking pie!

Rookie Bebe said...

The dulce and pie are two of the most delicious foods I've ever made. Thank you!

Kevin, Dulce de Leche alone would satisfy me. A great apple pie.

Azusa said...

This looks amazing! I'm more of a crust person, so I'm thinking of making a slab pie and using this as a filling. Thanks for the sharing!

The Purple Foodie said...

Never thought of putting ddl with apple pie! brilliant idea - going to remember this one.:)

Vintage Kitchen Notes said...

Here in buenos aires we eat apples with dollops of dulce de leche. Banana slices also. It´s an easy dessert that´s been around for ages.
Should try banana cream pie with a layer of dulce de leche..

I made this pie a few weeks ago and we really liked it. I used the canned dulce de leche by Nestle and used the remaining stirred into my coffee and on some vanilla gelato. I used Cortland apples.
