Salted Caramel Apple Hand Pies

Salted Caramel Apple Hand Pies

Salted Caramel Apple Hand Pies


  • 1-box store-bought refrigerated pie crust (2 rolls) *I like to use Pillsbury
  • 2 cups peeled and diced Granny Smith apples (about 3 apples, diced small)
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Large flake sea salt
  • 10 store-bought soft caramels, cubed
  • ½ lemon juiced
  • Egg wash (1 egg whisked with 1 Tablespoon water)
  • Crystal sanding sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 425ºF and line a baking sheet with Silpat or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the diced apples, lemon juice, cinnamon, sugar and flour. Mix until apples are thoroughly coated. Set aside.
  3. Unroll the pie dough onto a well-floured surface. Using a 3-inch circular cookie cutter or glass, cut out as many circles as possible. Using a rolling-pin, roll out the scraps and continue cutting out circles until you run out of dough.
  4. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the apple filling into the center of half of the pie circles. Make sure to leave enough of a border around the filling to seal them shut. Do not overfill!
  5. Top the apple filling with a few pieces of caramel.
  6. Brush around the edges of the dough with a finger dipped in egg wash. This will be the “glue”.
  7. Place a second dough circle on top each filled circle then use a fork to crimp the edges together.
  8. Brush each pie with the egg wash, and cut two vents on the top of each pie with a sharp knife. Sprinkle the pies with crystal sanding sugar and place on prepared sheet pan.
  9. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  10. Bake the pies for 15 minutes, or until they’re golden brown.

  1. At what temp. and how long do you cook them.

  2. Are the rest of the instructions somewhere? I just see a list of ingredients

  3. These look delicious. They would make a nice Christmas gift. Thanks for sharing.

  4. about how many pies will I get out of this recipe?

  5. Where does the large flake sea salt go? …inside with the caramel and apple?

    • Since no one has answered this, I will try! I was wondering the same thing, but it looks like in the pictures the salt is put IN the pie, after you add the caramel pieces. :)
