Cut off the bottom off of the plastic bottles. Fill the bottle bottoms with ice cream ensuring that the tops are smooth. Using the top portion of the bottle with the cap still on, press into the centers of the ice cream creating a crater. Fill each crater with caramel sauce. Freeze to set. When the caramel has set, remove the ice cream from the mold and place on the upside down on the other to form an apple. Fill in the sides with more ice cream, then freeze to set.

Use the thumb on the other hand to push the dough towards the pinched fingers ultimately creating a crust design. Place three small jars on the pie dough. Mix together the apple slices, 1/4 cup of sugar, flour, cinnamon, and lemon juice. Layer the apple mixture around the small jar in the pie dough.
