Caramel Apple Empanadas are the perfect way to get in a quick caramel apple fix without all the fuss! Perfect for an after-school snack or a quick dessert – these empanadas take less than 20 minutes to pull together and bake! My kind of treat :)
Remember that caramel apple craze I told you about?? Yeah. It’s not over. Last night I could hardly sleep for all the caramel apple ideas that were popping into my head – 99% of which will never be remembered. Isn’t that how it always goes? My best ideas always come at night when I’m lying in bed trying to go to sleep.
I’ve seriously thought about starting to record my ideas on a voice recorder so I won’t forget. In the morning those ideas that seemed so bright and fresh are always a bit hazy.
This, of course, has nothing to do with this particular recipe so let me start again.
So this caramel apple craving had to be satisfied yet again just a few days ago. I was thinking about a caramel apple pie and got all excited….headed to the kitchen and found that I had two Granny Smith apples and one pie crust. Not gonna happen.
But then I was like – wait a minute! I’ll just make up some mini Caramel Apple Pies. And that’s just what I did! Well that’s what I thought I did anyways. No. My husband came home, took one look at my “pies” and proclaimed them Caramel Apple Empanadas. Since he’s Peruvian, I’ll just take his word for it :)
These are pretty much the simplest treat you can make – I’m talking less than 20 minutes TOTAL. Great for an after-school snack or double, triple, quadruple the recipe for a crowd. Just a word of caution – don’t go crazy with the caramel on the inside. You will regret it :)
Now I am always, always hesitant to call anything empanadas because I feel like Chris’s mom might have something to say about it. I have been wanting to share her empanadas recipe FOREVER but can’t seem to get ahold of it…this sweet empanada is just going to have to do for now :)
