Holiday baking season is upon us and with that comes a very messy kitchen! But this year, I’m more prepared than ever before! I’m sharing my trick for scrubbing kitchen messes away quickly and I’m also sharing a sticky, gooey, and delicious recipe for caramel apple slab pie that is so good you won’t even be thinking about that messy kitchen.
When it comes to keeping a kitchen clean, it really comes down to having the right tools for the job. Because I bake and entertain a lot, I spend a lot of time washing dishes. But I found a product that scrubs fast and rinses clean! It’s the new Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Scrub Dots Sponge, Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Scrub Dots Sponge, and the Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Scrub Dots Dishwand!
I picked up the green Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Scrub Dots Sponges, which eliminate baked-on messes, and are safe to use on pots, pans, and all of your heavy duty cookware. But I also picked up the blue Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Scrub Dots Sponges too, to clean without scratching and are safe to use on my non-stick cookware, my counter tops, and even on my cook tops too! Both of the sponges feature Scrubbing Dots technology, which allow the sponges to rinse clean. The Scotch-Brite® Non-Scratch Scrub Dots Dishwand, and the Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Scrub Dots Dishwand are also awesome ways to get those dishes clean in a jiffy and I love that they have replaceable refill heads too! They definitely speed up the time I spend cleaning the kitchen and washing dishes in my sink, which allows me more time to put my feet up and enjoy this delicious caramel apple slab pie!

But now, let’s get back to that caramel goodness!
When it comes to pie, not only am I thinking about the mess that I’m about to dive into, but I’m also thinking about the time it takes to actually make one. I do love pie, but I don’t love how time consuming it is to make one from scratch. But today’s recipe, for caramel apple slab pie, takes half the time to prepare and is just as delicious! And if you’re a fan of caramel, you’re in luck. Caramel and apples are a match made in baking heaven, if you ask me.
Caramel Apple Slab Pie –
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:
- 1 Box Refrigerated Pie Crusts
- 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
- 3 Tbsp. Flour
- 2 Tsp. Cinnamon
- 9 Cups Apples (sliced and peeled)
- Caramel (homemade or store bought)
Streusel Topping –
- 1 Cup Flour
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 1/4 Cup Old Fashioned Oats
- 1/2 Cup Butter (cold and cut into pieces)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Remove the two pie crusts from the original packaging. On a lightly floured counter-top or other hard surface, unroll both pie crusts and stack them on top of each other. Roll them out to be a little bit larger than the size of your baking pan.
Fit the crust into your un-greased baking pan, making sure to press it into all of the corners. Fold the extra crust edges even with the edges of your baking pan. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix 1/2 cup sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, and cinnamon. Add in the apples and stir well to coat them completely.
Spoon the coated apples into crust filled baking pan. Drizzle with as much or as little caramel as you want.
In a separate medium bowl, mix all of the streusel ingredients together, cutting in the butter with a fork or pastry blender until crumbly.
Sprinkle the streusel topping evenly over the caramel drizzled apples.
