With fall just around the corner, I’m already thinking about baking more and apple recipes. Yum! This recipe is easy to make – don’t be intimidated by the puff pastry. It’s not hard!

Caramel Apple Cream Puffs

Puff Pastry:

  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup all purpose Flour
  • 4 Eggs
  • ½ cup Butter
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

Apple Filling:

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 3 apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1 ½ tablespoons of water
  • 1 box of caramel flavored pie pudding filling (2 cups of milk for pudding)
  • Caramel topping (as desired)

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

2. In a large pot over high heat bring butter and water to a boil. Stir in the salt and flour, lower heat to medium and mix together until it becomes a ball form. Place dough in a large mixing bowl.

3. Whisk in one egg at a time, being sure it’s well mixed before adding another. Repeat for all four eggs.

4. Add in the ¼ teaspoon of ground cinnamon. Mix.

5. In an ungreased pan, drop in 1 tablespoon of dough at a time.

6. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

7. In a large pan, melt butter and add in apples. Sautee for 5-7 minutes over medium heat. Add in cinnamon, brown sugar and water. Lower heat to low, gently keep stirring for an additional 2-3 minutes until apples are tender. Remove from heat.

8. In a medium bowl, make the pie according to directions.

9. Once puffs are done, slice in half. Spoon on one teaspoon of caramel filling and then ½ teaspoon of apple filling. Layer again with the other half of the puff. Drizzle caramel on top.

Makes 26 puff pastries.
