13.4 oz. Can


  • 5 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced

  • 1 lemon

  • ½ cup packed dark brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 package (14.1 ounces) refrigerated pie crusts

  • 1 can (13.4 ounces) Nestlé® La Lechera® Dulce de Leche
  • 1 large egg

Make It

Step 1

Place apple slices in a large bowl. Add water until slices are covered; add juice from lemon.

Step 2

Whisk together brown sugar, flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Drain apple slices; add sugar mixture to apples. Mix until apples are evenly coated.

Step 3

Line 9-inch pie plate with one pie crust. Press onto bottom and up side, leaving a ½-inch overhang.

Step 4

Place dulce de leche in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH (100%) power for 35 seconds or until soft enough to spread.

Step 5

Arrange one-third of apple slices in a circular pattern in pie crust. Spread ½ cup dulce de leche over apples. Arrange another third of apples; spread another ½ cup dulce de leche over apples. Top with remaining apples; spread remaining dulce de leche over apples.

Step 6

Cover pie with second crust, pinching edges together. Cut a few vent holes in top of pie.

Step 7

Beat egg and water in small bowl; brush crust with egg mixture. Mix granulated sugar and remaining ½ teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl; sprinkle over crust. Place pie on baking sheet.

Step 8

Bake at 400° F for 10 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350° F; bake for an additional 30 minutes or until crust is lightly browned.
