History of the candy apple

The original candy apple was invented in 1908 by candy maker William Kolb. He was experimenting with a hard cinnamon candy for the upcoming Christmas season. He dipped apples in the mixture and put them on display. They were a hit then, and they still are today.

Remember those days when you walked through the gates of the county fair and the first thing you got was a big, sticky candy apple? I know that they were one of my favorite treats. I'd walk around eating that sticky apple, getting it stuck in my hair and shirt, before finally finishing it off. My face and hands ended up covered in shiny red sugar. Boy were they good!

I haven't gotten one in many years because I'm a little scared that the candy coating will pull out my dental work. Luckily, this pie is the perfect replacement.

Many years ago I tried this pie at a party and couldn't believe it! It was the best apple pie I had ever eaten. It tasted exactly like a candy apple, just without the stickiness.

I have to admit that I've never been a huge fan of traditional apple pie. It's good, but it's never been a dessert that I go out of my way for. This candy apple pie, however, is definitely on my list of favorites, and one that I make quite often.

It's unique, tasty, easy to make, and always a hit with everyone. Try it and you'll be amazed at how much it tastes like that candy apple you used to get at the fair.

Candy apple pie recipe

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 55 min
Ready in: 1 hour 10 min
Yields: Serves 8
  • 6 cups (6 - 8 medium) apples, sliced
  • 2/3 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
  • 1/2 cup cinnamon imperial candies
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 tbs sugar, keep the 2 tbs separate
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 - 9 inch deep dish pie shells, keep frozen

* My favorite apples to use in this pie are Cortland, Stayman and Granny Smiths.

Note about the ingredients

  • You can make your own pie shells for this recipe, but it is much easier to use the store-bought deep dish ones. They can be found in the freezer section. If you do make your own, they need to rolled out and frozen before used.
  • Cinnamon candies are not always easy to find. I usually buy them in bulk when I come across them. They are available in the baking section of larger grocery stores, but in small quantities. They are known as "Red Hots", "Cinnamon Imperials" or "Cinnamon Hearts".
  • The walnuts are optional, but add a nice texture to the pie.

Instructions

  1. Place a baking sheet into the oven. Preheat the oven and baking sheet to 375°.
  2. Peel and slice the apples and place in a large bowl.
  3. Add the nuts, cinnamon candies, 1/3 cup of sugar and the flour to the apples. Mix gently.
  4. Remove one pie crust from the freezer and fill with the apple mixture.
  5. In a small bowl, break up the other frozen pie shell into small pieces. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tbs. of sugar and mix gently.
  6. Cover the apples with the sugar coated pie crust.
  7. Place on preheated baking sheet and bake for 55 - 60 minutes or until cinnamon candies melt and bubble through the top. Start checking around 50 minutes just to make sure it doesn't burn.
  8. Place on a cooling rack. Cool completely before serving.

Serving suggestions

One of the things that makes this pie so special is the color. The cinnamon candies melt and turn the apples and sauce into a lovely rich red color.

The color and taste remind me a little bit of the spiced apples I used to make with my Aunt.

Paired with a cup of coffee or tea, this pie goes well with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. It is the perfect addition to a Thanksgiving or Christmas dessert table.

Candy apple pie is one of those unique pies that people never seem to forget, and always seem to request.

      See, I happen to think that recipes like this one are cruel and unusual punishment. How dare you post this when I'm hungry? LOL

      Love the introduction and yes, I remember those days well. I will definitely be trying this recipe in the weeks ahead. Thank you!

      I love candy apples and this pie looks s-o-o-o-o delicious. The addition of walnuts is a great idea to offset some of the sweetness. It is a great dessert idea for this time of year.

      Hi DreamerMeg - The broken crust really adds a nice crunch, almost like a streusel topping, but not quite as sweet. It adds a nice texture to the pie too. Thanks so much for commenting.

      Congrats on HOTD with this one! It looks awesome, and easy! I'm not much on pie crust; I struggle with top crust placement, so this is a perfect "out" for me.

      It sounds absolutely delicious, and is another of your offerings I must bookmark, share and pin! Voted up ++

      Wow. This looks so good. I love the fact that you can get the candy apple taste without having to eat a candy apple. Like yourself, I am too afraid to eat them because of the stickiness that gets everywhere and breaking off my teeth.

      That looks very tasty! Reminds me of what we get over here in the UK; apple crumble. We just put chopped apple with cinnamon and sugar (maybe some raisins) in a dish, then sprinkle a mix of flour, sugar, cinnamon, and butter on the top. I'll have to try this one.

      Hi Adventuretravels - It does smell good when it's cooked! And I guess a little candy is good, but I also worry about my teeth. Thanks for reading and your kind comments.

      Pollyanna Jones - I like apple crumble too. I thinks apple desserts are so tasty this time of year. Glad you enjoyed the recipe and I appreciate the nice comments.

      RTalloni 15 months ago from the short journey

      Back to check this out again because I need to make 200 hundred individual desserts for a group of kids in mid-December. I'm wondering about using the flour tortilla method with apple filling topped with the cinnamon candies. Maybe thick apple sauce with a melted marshmallow on top and dropping cinnamon candies for decoration while each is still hot. Pinterest has many elaborate fun dessert ideas for kids but 200… will try to let you know how it goes.

      Hmmm that sounds like an interesting variation. Add a little zing to the apple pie filling and marshmallow never hurt anything! Let me know how it turns out.
