Easy Caramel Apple Puff Pastry
You won’t believe how easy this caramel apple puff pastry is to make! Your family will adore these delightful, mess-free treats.
As a dietitian and mom of three kids, I love finding delicious and unique ways to serve fruits and veggies. These fluffy, salty-sweet puff pastry-covered apple slices (they’re like mini apple pies!) take the mess (and the science!) out of baking; they couldn’t be simpler (or look fancier) to make, and your family will love them! P.S. your kids might also like my soft and fluffy apple cookies or these flourless oatmeal apple muffins. Just sayin’.
And when I say simple, I mean simple! I’m all about the shortcuts. Puff pastry sheets are sliced into strips, wrapped around crisp apple rounds and baked until golden. See my tip at the bottom of the recipe if you are using puff pastry blocks, I’ve got you covered! As someone who–admittedly–has never used puff pastry, I can attest to the fact that it was insanely easy to use.
My kids love to dust ours in cinnamon sugar as soon as they come out of the oven to add spice, sweetness and sparkle. Easy, homemade salted caramel drizzled overtop makes them look fancy and taste oh-so-unbelievably yummy. Just add the ingredients to a small pot and simmer, whisking frequently, for around 10 minutes while the pastries bake. See, so easy! The baked apples will shrink slightly as they cool, which allows the caramel to flow through the pastry and onto the baked apple inside, yum!
You can save a few steps and a little time by using your favourite store bought caramel, if you prefer.
