Total time
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 2 refrigerated premade pie crusts
  • 1 can apple pie filling
  • caramel bits
  1. Preheat oven to 400º.
  2. Unroll the pie crusts, spreading them just a bit thinner than it already is.
  3. Use a biscuit cutter, cookie cutter, or a small bowl to cut circles out of each pie crust. (I was able to get 3, then had to stretch a bit more to get my 4th from each.)
  4. Spoon 2-3 apples into the middle of each circle.
  5. Add about 5-8 caramel bits around the apples.
  6. Wet the edges of the pie crusts with a little water, and fold over the circle in half.
  7. Use a fork to press and seal the edges.
  8. Brush the top of each with a little of filling sauce.
  9. Place each empanada on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400º for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
