Cindy Aman Apple Pie Cake

Ingredients

1 butter cake mix
1 stick butter
1 can apple pie filling
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients until smooth. Pour into greased 9X13 baking dish. Bake 25-30 minutes. Cool completely and ice with caramel frosting.

Caramel Frosting

1 stick butter
1 14 oz. pkg. caramels
½ cup chopped pecans
1 tsp. milk
1 tsp. rum extract

Melt butter and caramels over low heat, stirring occasionally until caramels are melted (12-15 minutes). Stir in pecans, milk and rum extract. Mix well. Cool for 15 minutes; pour over cooled cake and spread to cover. This also makes a wonderful dip for fruit, cookies, or pound cake. NOTE: commercially produced caramel frosting works well when you are really in a hurry. Just sprinkle pecans on top of the frosting after spreading over the cake.
