Preheat oven to 325 deg F.
Squeeze lemon juice into a large bowl.
Core the apple, peel, and cut into thin slices.
Mix in the bowl with lemon juice. Add granulated sugar. Continue to mix and toss thoroughly.
In a collander, pour apple slices to drain juices for around 20 minutes. Then place apples back into large bowl.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, spices and raw sugar.
Sprinkle flour mix over drained apples. Stir to coat apple slices as best as possible.
Pour apple on pie crust. Pour salted caramel sauce on top of apple slices.
