Crispy AppleBits

What Distinguishes These Tiny Pies Is The Crunch Of Pecans And Sugar Sweetness Mixed With Cinnamon And Sea Salt

Preparation time:  15 minutes

Servings:  24 delicious AppleBits


  • 17.3-ounce package frozen puff pastry sheets (1 sheet) thawed
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped apples, peeled if desired
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 10 caramels, unwrapped -- can use vanilla, toffee or chocolate caramels
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • Chopped toasted pecans
  • Sea salt flakes


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. On lightly floured surface, unfold puff pastry sheet. Roll pastry into a 15-by-10-inch rectangle; cut into twenty-four 2 1/2-inch squares. Fit each square into a 1 3/4-inch muffin cup. 
  2. Stir together apples, sugar and cinnamon. Spoon into pastry-lined muffin cups. Bake about 15 minutes or until pastry is golden. Cool 5 minutes in pan. Carefully remove each pastry from pan. 
  3. Heat and stir caramels and cream over very low heat until melted and smooth. (Tip:  When pressed for time, use a high-quality readymade caramel sauce instead.) Drizzle each AppleBit with caramel sauce and sprinkle with pecans. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt. Serve while still warm, if possible.
