Ingredients

Salted Caramel

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 100 g butter cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup pouring cream
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Apple Pies

  • 5 medium sized apples peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons salted caramel sauce
  • 3 sheets pre-rolled puff pastry
  • 1 egg lightly beaten

Instructions

Caramel Sauce

  • In a deep saucepan, heat the sugar over medium heat until it starts to melt. Stir gently but thoroughly while it melts. It will first clump together, then melt and turn a deep golden colour.
  • Once melted, add in the cubes of butter, two cubes at a time. Start whisking while you do this and don't stop until the butter has melted.
  • Once the butter has completely melted, pour in the cream and keep whisking. Take extra care here as the cold cream will make the caramel bubble and rise.
  • Add in the salt.
  • Pour into a sterilised jar and leave it to cool down.

Apple Filling

  • In a saucepan, gently saute the apple slices and cinnamon in the two tablespoons of butter. Cook for 10 minutes, until the apple is soft.
  • Add in the three tablespoons of your caramel sauce and cook for another two minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Heat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line a baking tray with baking paper or grease it.
  • Take your three sheets of rolled out puff pastry and cut each into 4.
  • Place a spoonful of apple filling into the middle of each quarter of pastry.
  • Fold over one corner to meet the opposite corner and crimp it down with a fork. Repeat this until all the filling is gone and you have 12 mini pies.
  • Brush each mini pie with some egg wash.
  • Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown, then leave to cool for 10 minutes before smothering with caramel sauce.
