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!
