I’ve never met a salted caramel anything I wouldn’t eat. I found Fleur de Sel Caramel Sauce at Trader Joe’s last week. So I grabbed it, natch.
I’ve had this pie crust in the fridge begging to be baked. So last night, I relented.
Here is the result…
Salted Caramel Apple Hand Pies.
They are on this gorgeous orange cake stand from Le Creuset….

Back to the business of pie!
The crust is the same from this post.
Roll it out to about 1/4″ thick. Cut in to “pop tart” sized rectangles. Cut one and use it as your template for the rest.
You can also cut larger rectangles and fold in over into a this size like this one here. Top with chopped green apples and drizzle with caramel sauce.
Just in case you can’t find caramel sauce, I also did a few with chopped Brock’s caramels and added a bit of the Maldon Sea Salt that I used in this post. This worked well too.
Bake 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remember that gluten free flour doesn’t always brown like traditional wheat flour so don’t over cook!
- Use the pie crust recipe from the Apple Galette post.
- 2 Granny Smith Apples
- 1 jar salted caramel sauce; or 15 caramel pieces and sea salt flakes like Maldon Sea Salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Chop apples and caramels.
- Roll out pie crust to ¼" thickness
- Cut in to rectangles.
- Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet.
- Top with apples and caramel sauce or caramel pieces.
- Cover with second piece of pie crust.
- Press all sides of the pie with the tines of a fork to seal.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
This is a great dessert or breakfast treat. The crust keeps for two weeks in the refrigerator so it’s easy to keep on hand.
Hmmm…..may be time for me to make these …they look delicious! Bet they’re wonderful with blueberry and cream cheese too.
That sounds good! I’ll have to try that!
With your help? I think I can make these! Thank you for sharing with us.
They are super easy! You’ll love them and this crust is so easy and great for all pies!
These look so yummy! My kids would be all over these after school!
