Caramel Apple Jack-o’-Lantern Pies

It is almost Halloween and that means all things fun and spooky and these Caramel Apple Jack-o’-Lantern hand pies fit right in. They are so much fun to make and of course, even more fun to eat. Your family and friends are going to love these! They are a little labor intense but you can totally take shortcuts using a couple of store bought ingredients or making things ahead of time just like I did.

What you need to make Caramel Apple Jack-o’-Lantern Pies

Caramel Sauce:

Sugar,butter, heavy cream and salt.

Pie crust:

Flour, butter, sugar, cold water

For the Apple Filling:

Granny Smith apples, cornstarch, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt

Egg wash and additional sugar to sprinkle at the end.

Helpful tips and tricks:

The best tip is to make the caramel sauce and the pie crust ahead of time, just keep them both in the refrigerator (make sure the caramel sauce is not longer hot) until you are ready to make the pies.

I cut out all the pumpkin shapes and carved out the jack-o-lantern faces as I was assembling the pies but there’s not right or wrong way to do it. Just whatever works better for you. If you feel like the dough is no longer chilled place it back in the refrigerator for a couple of minutes.

It is normal if some caramel sauce oozes out of the pies. Make sure the pies have enough egg wash and are tightly sealed and most of the filling will stay in.

About

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
