Caramel Apple Blondie Pie

We just love apples and who doesn't love a great caramel sauce drizzled all over a fabulous dessert.  This Caramel Apple Blondie Pie is so rich with all the wonderful full flavors of fall,  a brownie and pie all rolled into one.  This will be a dessert that we will serve the year round, but is just perfect for the fall and winter season, hope you enjoy it.

Ingredients
6 Granny Smith Apples, peeled and sliced
2 tablespoon all purpose flour
2 cups firmly packed dark brown sugar, divided
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup water
1 cup butter, divided
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon table salt
3 large eggs, lightly beaten, room temperature
4 tablespoons apple cider
3/4 cups toasted pecans, chopped
1 9 inch pie crust, your choice
Directions
Peel and slice the apples into 1/4 inch slices
In a large mixing bowl place the 1/4 peeled apple slices and toss with 2 tablespoons flour 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon nutmeg mix well making sure the apples are well covered, let the mixture set at room temperature for 15 minutes
In a large stew pot or skillet melt 1/4 cup butter over medium heat stir in the apple mixture, stirring to allow the mixture to thicken, as it begins to thicken and wants to stick to the bottom of the pan, add 1/2 cup water to thin the mixture and allow the apples to cook until tender.
Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature about 30 to 45 minutes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Melt the remaining 3/4 cup butter
Stir together 1 1/2 cups flour, 3/4 cup sugar, 1 1/2 cups brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt
Whip the room temperature eggs, butter, and apple cider together 
Stir the egg mixture into the flour and sugar mixture and mix well, add the pecans and mix well
Using a 10 inch iron skillet, fit the pie crust into the skillet, press the crust down really well into the skillet
Spoon 2/3 of the apple mixture over the bottom of the pie crust, spread it evenly over the bottom of the crust
Spoon the flour and sugar batter over the apple layer and spread it evenly 
Layer the remainder of the apple mixture on top of the batter
Bake at 350 degrees on the lower rack of the oven, bake for 1 hour and 10 to 20 minutes
Insert a wooden pick in the center of the pie to check, it will have a few moist crumbs
Remove the pie from the oven and cool completely before slicing
Serve with Caramel Sauce
