Apples and caramel together for a fun dip for the holidays.

Ingredients

  • pinch nutmeg
  • pinch salt
  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp. water

For the crust dippers:

  • 14 oz. pkg. refrigerated pie dough
  • 1/8 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Instructions 

  • Add the apples, caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt into a 3 quart or larger slow cooker. In a small bowl mix together the cornstarch and water, add to the slow cooker.
  • Stir everything until combined.
  • Cover, and cook on HIGH for 2 hours. Stirring once or twice during those 2 hours.
  • In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon and sugar.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spread out one pie crust at a time onto a baking sheet. Using a pastry brush, spread on the milk. Sprinkle half of the cinnamon sugar mixture onto the pie crusts.
  • Using a pizza cutter or knife cut the pie crusts into serving strips.
  • Spread out the strips on the baking sheet so they don’t bake together.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Repeat with other pie crust.

    I’m gonna try cutting the pie crust into rounds that fit into muffin tins and bake them have mini tartlets will let u know how they come out.

  2. Shannon Hamner says:

    I am wondering if you could make this and then pour it into pie crust and bake as a normal pie?

  3. Jane Thibeault says:

    I’m going to try it with Ginger Snaps and those Stacy’s Cinnamon Sugar chips.

  4. Brenda Tope says:

    You can also take soft taco shells brush them with melted butter, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Cut them in triangle shapes with a pizza cutter and bake them till browned and crunchy. Great dipping chips.

    1. cherripii says:

      “soft taco shells”…you mean flour tortillas? :)))

  5. Jlynn says:

    Can you freeze it?

  6. Stephanie says:

    Is the caramel supposed to be watery at the end? Mine seemed to be very runny.

    1. Sarah Olson says:

      Mine was a little thinner than what I started with, but wasn’t runny. It could be the apples you used were juicier than the ones I used?

    2. Amanda says:

      Mine was super runny too. :/

      1. Jane Thibeault says:

        I wonder if it’s runny depending on what kind of apples you use. Macs would be very juicy compared to a drier apple??? Does it thicken as it cools off?

  7. Jodi says:

    What about using canned apples or apple pie filing instead of actual apples.

    1. Sarah Olson says:

      That would be really good too! Would probably need less caramel since the apple pie filling is pretty moist and flavorful already.

  8. applelover says:

    Looks delicious!!! Do you serve warm?

    1. Sarah Olson says:

      I ate it both ways. Hot when I made it and cold later that day. Both were equally delicious.

  9. Michelle Barrett says:

    Do you think you could use Marzetti caramel dip instead of the Smuckers?

    1. Sarah Olson says:

      I think that would work ok. It may be thicker, but I would think it would melt down nicely.

  10. Vicky H says:

    Any reason why this couldn’t be doubled?

    1. Sarah Olson says:

      I don’t see why not!
