“This "easy as pie" dessert is sweet, simple and spectacular. Stacked apples with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. This is so much fun! We used vanilla rum-raisin ice cream and Smuckers Butterscotch Caramel Sauce. The raisins should be soaked for only about 10 minutes. CuisineAtHome, Issue 71 - August/September 2008”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF; line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Unroll pie dough onto prepared baking sheet, brush with melted butter, and sprinkle with sugar.
  3. Using a pastry wheel, cut dough into 12 wedges and bake until golden and crisp, about 15 minutes.
  4. Don't bother separating the triangles after cutting - they'll shrink during baking and won't stick together.
  5. Remove from oven and set aside.
  6. Melt butter in a non-stick skillet over medium heat; add apples, drained raisins, cinnamon, and salt, and saute until apples begin to soften, about 4 minutes.
  7. Add juice, simmer until nearly evaporated, then add 3/4 cup caramel.
  8. Reduce heat to low and keep apple mixture warm.
  9. To assemble: arrange 1 crust wedge on each of 6 plates, then top with 2 small scoops of ice cream and a spoonful of apples and caramel sauce.
  10. Place a second wedge on top with more ice cream and apple mixture.
  11. Serve immediately!
