Caramel Apple Autumn Spice Parfait / #FlavorsofFall





 I received product from the sponsor to

create the recipe below. All opinions on 

the product are mine. 


Welcome to the last day of our #FlavorsofFall celebration. My last recipe for the week is a simple dessert parfait with a lot of fall flavor! Today's recipe is sponsored by Door County coffee, so I infused my whipped cream topping with their Caramel Apple coffee for a flavor that will make you love fall even more! These Caramel Apple Autumn Spice Parfaits are stuffed full of chopped apple pieces, yogurt, apple butter, caramel and loads of flavor! 

Caramel Apple Autumn Spice Parfait 
(printable recipe at end of page)
(makes 4)

2 tablespoons Door County "Caramel Apple" Coffee 
1/4 cup Heavy Duty Whipping Cream 
6-8 ounces  of Caramel Bits
3 tablespoons Heavy Duty Whipping Cream
1 1/2 cup Apple Butter
1 Honey Crisp Apple, peeled and chopped small


Brew the Door County Caramel Apple Coffee, and let 1/4 cup cool. Mix the heavy whipping cream on medium speed. As it is coming together, add the coffee and continue to whip until stiff. Refrigerate.
 Melt the caramel bits in a double boiler. For a smooth melt of the caramels, add approx.3 tablespoons of warm heavy duty whipping cream to the melting caramels. This will make your caramel sauce. Reserve 12 caramel bits for the top of the parfaits.
 Place 1-1/2 tablespoons of apple butter into the bottom of each serving glass.
 Add the chopped apples to the top of the apple butter.
 Place the coffee infused whipped cream in a decorating bag with tip #1M. Top the chopped apples with the whipped cream.
 Drizzle caramel to make the next layer.
Add another layer of apple butter, a layer of chopped apples, and the coffee infused whipped cream. Top with three of the caramel bits on each glass. Enjoy!

Apple Crisp Hand Pies / #FlavorsofFall

  


This blog post is part of the #FlavorsofFall event. 
This event is sponsored, although this particular post is not.
On my sponsored posts all opinions are mine, and I may have received
product for writing the post.


One of my favorite #Flavors of Fall is not one flavor at all, but several yummy ones, that when put together, make a caramel apple! What about you? For some reason apples taste better in the fall months, although I eat them year round. The same with caramel. Caramel becomes a necessity for me in the fall, and although I try to limit the amount of it that I eat, when fall appears, the apples and caramels seem to jump right into my shopping basket!

Today I took my two favorite fall flavors and tossed in some chocolate, and came up with these Chocolate Apple Crisp Hand Pies! They are bursting with caramel apple flavor and it all comes together in a chocolate crust! I hope you like these!
Apple Crisp Hand Pies 
(makes 6 pies)
(printable recipe at end of page)
1 box store bought refrigerated pie crust rolls
3-5 teaspoons Cocoa Powder 
4-6 teaspoons cold water
3 tablespoons granulated Sugar
Seasoning
1/2 cup granulated Sugar
1 teaspoon Nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
3 strips of Lemon Zest
4-5 Granny Smith Apples
Crisp Filling
1/3 cup Light Brown Sugar
2 tablespoons Butter
2 tablespoons Flour
2 tablespoons Oatmeal
Caramel Filling/Dough
15-20 Caramel Squares
1-2 tablespoons Heavy Whipping Cream
1-2 teaspoons melted Butter


Unroll the refrigerated dough. Bring it to room temperature.
I started to mix the dough with my hands, but that was not going to work for me. You can do it this way if you want. Just place some of the chocolate on the dough and start kneading it until it becomes all together. I used a food processor, and it was much easier on my hands. As you are incorporating the cocoa powder, add the sugar. You may want to add more sugar than I did.
If you make this the night before it is an easier recipe. Just wrap the dough and set it in the fridge overnight.
When you are ready to pull this all together, start mixing the sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and lemon zest together in a bowl. You could mix this together the day before also.
Peel and chop the apples. Mix the seasoning with the apples.
Mix together the crisp filling ingredients.
Roll out the chocolate dough. This is not a picture of the dough for this recipe. For this recipe I made the dough 3x4". I rolled the dough to 1/4" thick.
Use a double boiler to melt the caramels.
Once the pie crust pieces are cut, place some of the apples, the crisp filling and the melted caramel on top. Place a small line of melted butter around the edges.
Top with another piece of cut dough.Crimp the edges. The butter will help keep the dough together. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. Drizzle with caramel!

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!

Grandma's Apple Butter / #appleweek

I have enjoyed Apple Butter several times, but this is the first time that I have made it myself. I love it! It is so much better than the jars I have picked up at the grocery, and it is even better than the time I bought some at an apple festival! It is a sweet, flavorful mix of apples, cider, sugar and spices. No butter is involved, but you can spread it like butter on anything and everything!
This is not a quick recipe, and if you make it like I did, pressing the apples with a sieve, you need a little muscle. A food mill would work much better. But, either way, it is worth your time and energy! I only made enough for one canning jar, and it was gone within the week!
Grandma's Apple Butter
(printable recipe at end of page)
(makes 1 jar)

3 pounds of Apples
1 quart Water
1/2 quart Sweet Cider
1 1/2 cups Sugar
1 teaspoon Spice House Apple Pie Spice


Wash the apples and cut them off the core.
Chop the apples into small pieces. Place in a large saucepan, cover with water, and boil until soft. It takes about 30 minutes.
Once the apples are soft, place a small amount at a time into a sieve and press down on the soft apples, pushing them through the holes and into the bowl underneath. This helps the apples breakdown. You could also use a food mill.
Pour the quart of sweet cider into a medium pot, and boil down the cider to half.
Here is a quick tip for making sure you boil the cider to half volume and not more. Pour the cider into the pot, and mark where it is in the pot on the outside with a pen and a piece of paper. Then mark where you want it to end up, which is halfway down. When the cider gets to that point, you are done. This helps you remember to keep an eye on the cider, because it boils down fast, and it is easier to gauge.
Add the apple pulp, sugar and Spice House Apple Pie Spice to the pot. Mix in.
Cook until the apple butter becomes a spreadable consistency, stirring often. The amount on this spoon is at the beginning of the process. Stir often to prevent burning.
The continued cooking and stirring will make the apple butter thicker, like it looks on this spoon.
After cooking, the apple butter wll look like this. Pour into jars and let cool. This Apple Butter is perfect for canning, and would make a great hostess or teacher gift!  

Tip-I should have peeled the apples, but forgot until after I had cut them. So I went ahead and left them on. Some of the peels came off as the apples cooked, and some of the peels came off as the apples went through the sieve. The peels would not go through. 


Thank you for joining me today for another fun #appleweek recipe. I hope you will enjoy making and eating Grandma's Apple Butter!
