(Chad A Elick)

Every year on the day after Thanksgiving we head over to my mother-in-laws house to make these fantastic dinner pastries called fataya.  It is a family tradition to prepare this this dish for Christmas eve while we spend the day laughing, cooking and enjoying each others company.  It is quite an experience.

Chad and I decided that we would like to contribute to the day’s events and prepare dessert.  Since then we have been working on recipes and these apple pie bombs have totally blown our socks off.  Flakey dough is loaded with apples, caramel and cinnamon then topped with butter and brown sugar.  Once they come out of the oven they are drizzled with more caramel.

These are insane.  Break a hot one open and the caramel and apples flow like a river out of the pie.  They are so good that Chad (who doesn’t like apple pie) devoured 3 of these as soon as the photo shoot was over.

Munchkin and I loved these apple pie bombs and are talking about other variations to start working on.  With only 15 minutes of prep time, the possibilities are endless.  What flavor would you make next?

With love from our Simple Kitchen to yours.

  • Active Time

  • Total Time

Ingredients

  • 12 frozen white dinner rolls, (uncooked)
  • 2 medium apples, (I used gala)
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 30 vanilla caramels, unwrapped and divided
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp heavy cream
  • Flour, (for dusting)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  2. Place dinner rolls on a microwave safe plate and microwave on defrost for about 2 minutes (or until dough is no longer frozen, but not cooked).

  3. Butter a small casserole dish (approximately 9”x6”) and set aside.

  4. Peel, core and dice apples. Place them in a medium size bowl. Add sugar and cinnamon. Toss to coat. Set aside. Unwrap and cut 18 caramels into quarters. Set aside.

  5. Lightly flour your countertop.

  6. Toss 1 piece of dough in flour and flatten and stretch like you are making a mini pizza. Stretch dough to about 3” across.

  7. Reserve ¼ cup apple mixture. Add a tablespoon of apple and 6 of the cut caramel pieces. Pull the edges of the dough together to create a ball. If they ball won’t seal, tap your finger tips into the flour and crimp the seal together.

  8. Place dough ball in prepared dish. Repeat until all apple pies are in dish. Brush apple pies with melted butter (use it all). Sprinkle with reserved apple mixture and brown sugar.

  9. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the tops are golden brown and the pies are no longer doughy.

  10. Meanwhile, place 12 remaining unwrapped caramels and cream in a microwave safe bowl and heat until melted. Stop microwave and stir every 30 seconds. Once you have a smooth mixture, set aside to cool.

  11. Remove from oven and drizzle with caramel sauce.

  12. Serve and enjoy!
