Caramel apple pie is delicious and very versatile. You can serve it all season long. If you love apple pie you’ll have to try our recipe for apple bombs.
It’s called a “bomb” because of the burst of flavor — it’s an overload of apples. This is the perfect mid-afternoon snack, afterschool snack for your kids, or dessert recipe for after dinner. It has the same components of an apple pie: crust, apples, and caramel. Try this recipe and you’ll never go back to standard apple pie.
For the apple bomb you’ll need: 12 uncooked biscuits, two apples that are peeled, cored, and diced, one tablespoon of cinnamon, two tablespoons of granulated sugar, 30 unwrapped vanilla caramels, two tablespoons of melted butter, one fourth cup of brown sugar, a half cup of chopped pecans, two tablespoons of heavy cream, and flour.
To make the apple bombs preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and butter a casserole dish. Place the apples in a bowl with sugar and cinnamon, mix together and set aside.
For the biscuits: Lightly flour the countertop and flatten each piece of dough into a mini pizza about 3 inches wide. Add a tablespoon of the apples and six of the caramels. Put the edges of the dough together and roll it into a ball. Put the ball in the dish and repeat until all of the balls are done.
Put in the oven and bake for 35 minutes or until the tops are golden. If there are leftover caramels, heat in the microwave until it becomes a sauce and pour over top. Set the balls aside to cool and then enjoy.
Serve the apple bombs with ice cream and more sauce if you’d like.
