As much as I love fruit pies, apple pie definitely ranks no. 1 in our household. Thankfully, apples are available all year round in Singapore so I have every reason to make this Salted Caramel Apple Pie.

Thanks to the addition of salted caramel, the savory-sweet combo of the apple pie filling is simply one of the best filling I ever had. Making the crust, also known as short crust pastry is really the essential part of a delicious pie. If you follow the steps below, you’ll be rewarded with a light and flaky crust. I can’t decide which I like better – crust or filling.

Oh, the lattice top is totally optional but visually, it does add a few more points to this wonderfully scrumptious pie, right?

2 sticks (227 g) unsalted butter – chilled and cut into cubes
2 ½ cup (350 g) all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp (15 g) sugar
¼ cup (60 ml) iced water (might not need to use up all)
