Mini Salted Caramel Apple Pies



Last week I shared these yummy Mini Apple pies with my blog friend Natalie from Growing Up a NJ Wife and Mom Blog.
When she invited me over to guest post I wasn't sure what to bring, and instead of making life complicated with fondant figures and difficult cakes, I decided to bring her something mini and yummy .

These mini Salted Caramel Apple pies are super easy to make.



Mini Salted Caramel Apple Pies
You will need:

  • Pie Crust
  • Flour
  • Egg whites
  • Pastry brush
  • Round cookie cutters
  • Lattice cutter dough ( optional, you always can cut the dough with a knife)
  • Caramel Apples (I used the recipe from Butter Yum Blog, Patricia is such a great cook. Find the recipe here)
  • Small cupcake pan
  • Brown sugar
  • Caramel Sauce (I got Fleur de Sel from Trader's Joe)
Instructions:

-Preheat the oven to 350.
-Turn the pie crust onto a lightly floured surface and using the bigger round cookie cutter cut the small pie disks.
-Spray the mini cupcake pan with non stick cooking spray and place the disks inside.
-Brush some egg white inside the disks and bake until the egg white has lost its glossy sheen. Around 15 minutes

-While the mini disks are baking, take the other pie crust and run the lattice cutter over it.
-Use the small round cookie cutter and cut the pie's disk.
-When the mini pies are done, get them out of the oven and fill them with the caramel apple and  top them off with the smaller pie disk

-Brush some egg whites on them and sprinkle a little bit of dark brown sugar on top of each mini pie.
-Put them back in the oven for 20 minutes or until you start to see the brown color around the edges and top of the mini pies.


-As soon as you pull them back from the oven, drizzle them with the caramel sauce

Now enjoy!
Your welcome!
