Caramel Apple Empanadas🤤🤤


Caramel Apple Empanadas🤤🤤


    ●1 Granny Smith apple peeled and cut into 8 wedges

    ●1 tablespoon lemon juice

    ●1 tablespoon granulated sugar

    ●½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

    ●⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg

    ●dash of allspice

    ●½ cup caramel bits or 15 unwrapped soft caramels

    ●1 teaspoon milk

    ●1 refrigerated pie crust – I used Pillsbury

    ●1 egg lightly beaten

    ●sanding sugar to sprinkle on top


Preheat oven to 425°F.

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Toss apples with lemon juice.

Combine sugar and spices and sprinkle over apples. Toss to coat and set aside.

Unroll pie crust on a lightly floured surface. Roll out just slightly.

Cut out 8 rounds using a 4 inch cutter.

Place pie crusts rounds on parchment-lined sheet.

Place each apple wedge on the rounds – slightly off center, leaving room to seal the empanada later.

Melt the caramel bits and milk together in a microwave safe bowl on high for 30 seconds. Stir and repeat until caramel is fully melted and smooth.

Drizzle 1 tsp of caramel onto each apple being careful to stay away from the edge.

Brush edges of rounds with egg and press edges together to seal. Use a fork to crimp the edges shut.

Brush the tops of the empanadas with egg and sprinkle with sugar if desired.

Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown and let cool slightly.

Reheat caramel if necessary and then drizzle over the top of empanadas and serve.

Have a good day 😁
