    Nikki this is just one show-stopper of a pie! The streusel layer alone makes me want to dive in and start crumble-picking, you know, devouring all those perfect little bites right off the top before anyone else even saw them or knew they were on this pie :) And then the caramel! Whoa!!

    Gorgeous & pinned!

    Did you bake the store bought pie crust before adding the filling?

    1. Chef in Training

      no you don't have to bake it prior to the filling
