How to Make Salted Caramel Apple Hand Pies in 30 Minutes!

Sweet and succulent, these salted caramel apple hand pies are sure to hit that sweet spot! 

You'll need:

  • 1 package pre-made pie crust (2 to a package)
  • 4 Granny Smith apples, peeled and chopped to small dice
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar (not packed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon rock salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons flour (or gluten-free flour)
  • 8 soft caramel candies
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • egg wash (get my egg wash recipe)

Cinnamon Sugar

  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

Here’s how to make them:

  1. To make the cinnamon-sugar topping, combine sugar and cinnamon. Stir. Set aside. 
  2. Preheat oven 350 degrees F. In a large plastic zipper bag, combine apples, sugars, spices and flour.
  3. Unroll pie dough and cut out eight large circles.
  4. Fill four of the circles with about 2 to 3 tablespoons of apple mix (do not overfill).
  5. Top each with a few tiny bits of butter and two soft chew caramels. Egg wash the edges.
  6. Place tops on and press with fork to seal. Egg wash again. Cut an X in the center to vent hot air. Dust with the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Bake 15 to 20 minutes.
