Directions

Start by adding Lemon Juice to your instant pot. Slice and peel each apple, I cut mine in 4 then in 2 or 3 wedges, swirl slices in lemon juice after each one. (Keeps your apples from browning.)

Add brown sugar, melted butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, 8 unwrapped caramels, and 1 cup water.  Place your lid on, make sure you are on sealing and not venting, press manual (or pressure cook) set timer for 1 minute with an instant release.

While your waiting your minute, mix 3 TBSP corn starch and 3 Tbsp Water together, mix well.

This caramel apple pie filling can be used in so many ways, I love yogurt, but my husband can't stand it, so I made a amazing parfait with mine and he put his over vanilla ice cream.  Okay so when your timer goes off, instant release and add corn starch mixture, stir until thick, and then remove inner pot from your instant pot and let cool on a hot pad on the counter for a few minutes.

In another bowl add 8 caramels (unwrapped) 1 tsp butter, and 1 tsp cream. Microwave for 1 minutes (stirring ever 30 sec until melted) Mix extremely well until smooth.
