Easy Caramel Apple Pie

This is a VERY easy, old fashioned pie. I found it in my grandmother's recipe box- clipped from an old Pet Ritz pie crust package.

10 caramel candies, each cut into 4 pieces
1/3 cup flour
3 cups chopped apples
2/3 cup caramel ice cream topping
2 t lemon juice
1 frozen 9 inch pie shell
1/2 cup pecan pieces

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine caramel pieces, flour, apple pieces, caramel topping and lemon juice in large bowl. Mix well. Pour mixture into frozen pie shell and sprinkle with 1/2 cup pecan pieces. Bake for 40-45 minutes.

TIP OF THE DAY: To make this pie in a deep dish pie shell substitute 15 caramel candies, 1/2 cup flour, 5 cups apples, 1 cup caramel ice cream topping and 1 T lemon juice.
