Begin by preparing your springform pan by lining the bottom with parchment paper.  Trust me…it helps. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Add the graham cracker crumbs to your melted butter.

Mix it together to form a sticky crumb.

Press the crumbs into the bottom of your pan.  A drinking glass it a really great way to press it evenly and firmly.

Bake in your oven for 10 minutes.  Remove it to cool and reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F.

In a bowl set over a pot of boiling water add the caramels to the whipping cream.  Stir until caramels are completely melted. 

Remove the caramel from the heat and divide it, leaving 1 cup for the filling.

Dice your apples.

In a bowl combine the cream cream and sugar, beating until smooth.

Add the vanilla.

Then beat in your egg.

Stir in the caramel sauce.

Carefully fold in the apples.

Pour the batter into your graham crust pan.

Bake in the oven for 15 minutes then reduce the temperature to 275 degrees F and bake for 70-90 minutes.  Allow to completely cool before serving.

To serve drizzle the caramel sauce over the individual slices.

I unfortunately don’t have a photo of the finished product.  It turned out so great that it got attacked by the guests of the party I took it to even before I had a chance to photograph it.  But that’s the chance you take when cooking great food.
