Mini Caramel Apple Pie

When one gets apples, make apple pie!
I know that one was cheesy :). Apple seems to be Adrika's very first word( or so I think!). So here is something to commemorate that.

This recipe makes about 4 muffin cup sized pies.

Pie Crust

1 and 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tbspn sugar
1/8 tspn salt
1/2 cup oil
4-6 tbspn milk

Mix everything in a bowl till moist clumps form. Keep adding milk to help clumping. Once they just about start coming together, the crust dough is done. Press to the muffin cups by hand . Try to keep the bottom slightly thicker so that fluids don't leak.


1 Apple cubed small with peel (healthier!)
2 tspn sugar
1/2 tspn lemon zest
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tspn cinnamon powder
1/4 tspn nutmeg powder
pinch of salt

Mix everything together.

Salted Caramel

1 cup sugar
3 tbspn cream
1/2 tspn salt

Add the sugar to a deep bottom pan and set on low-medium heat. Just swirl it around, never use a spoon or spatula to stir. Be patient, it takes some time for the sugar to liquidize. After it melts and turns a deep orange/red, switch off the flame. Add the cream and salt, be careful this will splutter and the whole thing is super hot. Mix in the cream well, till caramel sauce is formed. Allow it to cool completely. NEVER EVER EAT HOT CARAMEL EVER!

Putting it together

Preheat oven to 180C. Fill the pie crust with layers of apple filling and caramel sauce. Bake for about 25-30 mins or till the top edges are browned.
Let it cool completely for about 40 or 45 mins before eating.
