Apple Hand Pies with an Oatmeal Crust / #appleweek

For my final recipe of #appleweek, I wanted to make something traditonal, but special. I had so much fun creating these recipes, and I hope you will make and enjoy them! This Apple Hand Pie with an Oatmeal Crust is made with cooked apple pieces wrapped in an easy oatmeal recipe. They are cute, yummy and you can't eat only one!


Apple Hand Pies w/an Oatmeal Crust
(printable recipe at end of page)
(makes 5-6 pies)

Crust
1/2 cup Flahavan's Irish Oatmeal
1 cup Flour
1/3 cup Light Brown Sugar, packed
1 tablespoon Ground Walnuts
1/2 teaspoons Baking Soda
Pinch Salt
1 Egg
1/2 teaspoon Butter, melted

Filling
1 Apple
1/2 teaspoon Lemon Juice
1/4 teaspoon Rodelle Vanilla
1 1/2 tablespoons White Sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons Brown Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg


In a large bowl mix together the oatmeal, flour, light brown sugar,
ground walnuts, baking soda and salt.
In a small bowl, beat the egg with an immersion blender if you have one. If not, use a mixer. Add the beaten egg to the crust mix and mix together. Form the crust into a circle, wrap in plastic, and refrigerate for an hour. 
Wash, peel and chop the apples. The pieces need to be small to fit properly in the little pie. Place in a frying pan.
Season apple pieces with the lemon juice, vanilla, both sugars, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cook until soft, but with a little firmness, approximately 5-10 minutes. Let cool. 
Remove the dough from the refrigerator and roll out with a rolling pin to 1/8" inch. Cut the circles, remembering you will need 2 pieces for each pie. The cutter I used is 3 1/2" round, but of course, any size will work.
Place 1/2 teaspoon to 3/4 teaspoon of the filling in each bottom piece of the pie.
Place a top piece on each pie, and using a fork, move around the pie, marking it wth the tines of the fork. Brush the top with some of the melted butter. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake for 5-7 minutes. 
Cool on a cooling rack and serve!

Caramel Drizzled Apple Pie Egg Rolls / #appleweek

I love egg rolls, don't you? I pretty much love any type of egg roll, and lately I have been experimenting with dessert egg rolls! They are so much fun!! Plus, everyone loves them, from little ones to Grandma. I don't remember anyone ever refusing a dessert egg roll!

So, for #appleweek, I made these Caramel Drizzled Apple Pie Egg Rolls! They are crispy, full of Imperial sugar and spice, and apples that taste nice! Drizzle with a creamy, caramel sauce for complete dessert euphoria!
Caramel Drizzled Apple Pie Egg Rolls
(printable recipe at end of page)
(makes 10-15) 

3 medium to large Apples
1/2 cup Imperial Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
pinch of Nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon Cornstarch
1/4 -1/2 cup Water
1/2 tablespoon Butter
12 Caramel Squares
2-3 teaspoons Heavy Duty Whipping Cream


Peel and core the apples. Then chop them into smaller than bite sized pieces.
Mix together the Imperial Sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl.
Pour sugar mix on to the apples, and thoroughly mix together.
Melt a 1/2 tablespoon of butter in a large pan. Add the apple mix. Cook on medium heat to start, stirring the apples often.
In a small measuring cup, mix together the corn starch and water. 
As your apples cook, you will want to thicken the sauce a bit. You need to make a roux. Add a little of the cornstarch mix to the apple mix. You may need to add more. The juices need to be mixed together with a whisk. Turn the heat up to medium high and as the heat goes up, start whisking constantly. The immersion of the mix and the hot juice, will make the sauce thicken and be so tasty. Once it is as thick as you want, pull the mix off the heat.
Lay the apple mix diagonal across an egg roll wrap.
Using a bit of water and a pastry brush, brush water around the edge of one sde of the eggroll wrapper. You are creating a border around the edges so they will not break open when you are frying them. 
Fold the right and left corners into each other.Then bring the bottom one up to meet the middle. Put a slight bit of pressure on the roll as you roll it to the top to secure it. 
Place in a preheated fryer or pan and cook for 3-4 minutes at 350 degrees. They should be golden brown when they are done.
Melt the caramels in a double boiler. Once melted, heat the heavy duty whipping cream in the microwave for less than 10 seconds. Once it is warm, add the cream to the melted cramel, a little at a time. It should be smooth and drip from the spoon when the spoon is lifted from the pan.
Drizzle the egg rolls with the caramel sauce. Serve additional sauce on the side.
Look at these yummy Caramel Drizzled Apple Pie Egg Rolls!
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you give these dessert egg rolls a try. You won't be disappointed!

Cinnamon Apple Fritters / #appleweek


This post is sponsored in conjunction with AppleWeek .
I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the
creation of the AppleWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

I have loved Cinnamon Apple Fritters since I was a little girl. But, I haven't had them since .....well, I can't even remember the last time! So when when it was time to decide on apple recipes for #appleweek, Cinnamon Apple Fritters were a definite YES! The fritters are full of all the yummy fall flavors, and made me wonder why I waited so long to have them again. I know you will love this recipe too! It is full of flavor, and the fritters, served either hot or cold, are amazing and known to be addicting!
Cinnamon Apple Fritters
(printable recipe at end of page)
(makes enough for 4 -5 people)

2 large Apples-peeled

2 tablespoons Sugar
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Allspice
Pinch of Salt
1 1/4 cup Flour
1 cup Beer
Vegetable Oil
1/2 cup Caramel Bits
1-2 teaspoons Heavy Duty Whipping Cream
Chocolate Shavings



Start by chopping your peeled apples. You'll need small pieces as shown. For how to cut a small, fairly consistent size, read here.


Place the apple pieces in a large bowl. Add the sugars, cinnamon, allspice, and salt. Mix together until all the apple pieces are coated.
Whisk together the flour and the beer. Let it set up for 15 minutes.

Add the apples to the batter.
I used my Swiss Diamond frying pan to fry the fritters and heated the oil to 350 degrees. Using a cookie scoop, place the fritter batter into the fryer. Turn them over as needed to fry evenly. When done, remove from oil and let rest on a paper towel. 
While the fritters were frying, melt the caramel bits on low heat. Make it sauce by heating the heavy duty whipping cream and then adding it, a little at a time, until the caramel is smooth and you are happy with it's consistency.
Serve with the caramel sauce and enjoy!

Deconstructed Chocolate Caramel Mini Apple Pie / #appleweek


This post is sponsored in conjunction with AppleWeek .
I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in
the creation of the AppleWeek recipes.
All opinions are mine alone.


My favorite part of an apple pie is the apples and that sweet, cinnamon sauce that they are cooked in. Mmmm...! So I thought it would be fun to make a pie with a lot of the filling and less of the crust. Don't get me wrong, I love the crust also. But sometimes you just have to change things up a bit! That's how I ended up with this Deconstructed Chocolate Caramel Mini Apple Pie!
Deconstructed Chocolate Caramel Mini Apple Pie
(printable recipe at end of page)
(2 Mini Apple Pies)

1 package of refrigerated Pie Crust
1 Nordic Ware Reversible Pie Top Cutter 
1-2 tablespoons Flour
1 teaspoon unsalted Butter, melted
1/4 cup Sugar
2-3 tablespoons Cinnamon
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
Pinch Nutmeg
1 cup Caramel Bits
2 ounces Milk Chocolate, chopped
1-2 tablespoons Heavy Duty Whipping Cream


Before opening your pie crust, let it come to room temperature. Unroll the packaged pie crust. Of course, you could make your own pie crust if you wanted. Sprinkle a tablespoon of flour on the Nordicware Pie Top Cutter. Place the piece of pie crust on top of the apple side of the cutter. Using a rolling pin, roll over the dough until it looks like the picture above. Then pull off the dough in between the apples. Put the dough aside, and use a toothpick to pick out the apples. Place them on a parchment covered cookie sheet. 
Reroll the dough and the 4 little leaves in the middle. You don't need the cute little leaves for this recipe, but it is hard to avoid them. Place on pie top cutter and do it all over again.
By the end, you will be using little pieces of dough. 
Keep cutting the dough until it is all gone. I used this Swiss Diamond Paring Knife to help me with the job! Very handy and sharp!
Brush each apple with the melted butter.
Mix together the sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Sprinkle the mix onto the apple cutouts. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Let cool. These can be made a day or two before serving, keeping in a sealed container.
Chop your apples into small bite sized pieces. Click here to get the most efficient way to get these small pieces! Place apples on the stove with a pat of butter. Add the cinnamon, sugar and nutmeg. Cook on medium, stirring often until slightly soft. Remove from stove, or if you wish to enjoy your pies warm, just turn heat to low, and keep an eye on them while you finish the dish!
Get your caramel melting in a double boiler. Once it is melted, heat 1 tablespoon of heavy duty whipping cream in the microwave until warm. It takes less than 10 seconds. Slowly pour the warm cream into your caramels, stirring constantly until they are incorporated. If the cream is cold, it will not mix well, making your caramel too hard. This way it will be creamy. 
Chop your chocolate into small and large pieces.
Start building the deconstucted pies by placing some apple cutouts in the bottom of the bowls.
Add the cooked apples,
the melted caramel, and top with the chopped chocolate! 

Add a couple more apple pie crusts for fun! Serve and enjoy!

*a couple notes~ This would be great ala mode, and for another fun taste, add chopped peanuts on top of the chocolate and caramel. Then it will taste like a chocolate caramel apple! also....There is no need to make as many apple crusts as I made. Since I was making them anyway,  I froze them for future desserts!
