Four and Twenty Blackbirds’ Salted Caramel Apple Pie

My husband’s grandpa planted an apple tree in his backyard in North Dakota the year my husband was born (year 197x).  Every year, his grandpa would ship a box of apples from this tree to where ever Mick was living at the time.  I think this is such a nice gesture and a great idea to have a connection to your family and hometown. Sadly, Mick’s grandpa passed away this year… Mick’s aunt sent over the last shipment of apples.

We usually make apple pies from these apples.  This year, I decided we would try Four & Twenty Blackbird’s Salted Caramel Apple Pie from the Edible Selby.

We were going to go with the recipe in the book and wing it with the spices but I decided to google the recipe just in case.  We did manage to find the exact recipe, so that’s what we followed!

  • We cheated and used 2 store-bought pie crusts (the second one was used for the lattice on top).
  • Serve with vanilla ice cream!

    I tried this and the caramel part didn’t come together for me–tried it TWICE and it separated BOTH times. Any tips?

    • Hi Danielle – I called Four Twenty’s store and they asked if you stored it in the fridge or something? (hence the separation)…if it does, just stir it around or heat it up a bit? Does this help? if not, please let me know exactly when it separates / at what point and I can call them again! 🙂
