5 ingredient pie crust from scratch meets soft and gooey 6 ingredient apple and caramel filling. These delicious Mini Apple Caramel Pies are made in 20 minutes.
Combine apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, and flour and let rest until you are finished with the pie crust. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 350°F / 175°C.
Place butter, flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor and pulse about 5-6 times until it has a coarse structure and large butter pieces are still visible. Add 1 tbsp water and pulse one time. Add the second tbsp and pulse 2 times. Transfer crumbs to a 12 cup muffin pan. Press pie crumbs evenly with your fingers into the cups.
Place the apples equally into the cups without the liquid. Bake for about 22-24 minutes until pie crust is baked through. Remove from oven and set aside.
Meanwhile, microwave caramels and heavy whipping cream until melted for about 1-2 minutes. Stir every 20 seconds to combine. Spoon into pie cups. Let pie cups cool to room temperature. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge up to 1 day.
