I’m not usually fond of sweet and salty flavour combinations (don’t get me started on sweet and salty popcorn!) but with salted caramel it’s just right, you know? In fact, this is a flavour combination that pops up quite frequently when I’m making desserts (see my recipe for salted caramel pretzel cheesecakes).
This recipe makes two individual salted caramel apple pies (quite large individual portions, but aren’t those the best kind?!) and so if you want to make a standard sized pie you can just double up the recipe, although one pack of pastry might still do the job. Peeling the apples instead of chopping them allows the caramel sauce to permeate every part of the filling, so there’s no bite without that sweet and salty caramel flavour! The pies are best served with vegan ice cream – I recommend vanilla Swedish Glace with a drizzle of salted caramel sauce, if you have any left.
