Total Time: 1 hr
Servings: 8

INGREDIENTS:

APPLE FILLING

4 apples, peeled, cored, and cubed small (northern spy or Granny Smith)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1⁄2 teaspoon cornstarch
1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon

CARAMEL TOPPING

4 tablespoons butter
1 cup brown sugar

DOUGH

1 1⁄2 cups self-rising flour
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
water, to mix

OTHER

1 egg, mixed with
1 tablespoon water (to make an egg wash)
8 teaspoons rolled oats
8teaspoons coarse sugar (or sugar in the raw)

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 400° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat.
  • FILLING: mix all filling ingredients together in a small bowl. Set aside.

-CARAMEL: Heat caramel ingredients over medium heat; Bring to boil, stirring constantly; Let boil for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally.

DOUGH: Mix the flour and oil together in a bowl, and mix in just sufficient cold water to make a firm (but not sticky) dough. Divide dough into 8 equal pieces. Then roll out each into a 5-6″ disc.

ASSEMBLY: Place 1/8th of apple filling onto center of each dough round. Fold up edges of dough up towards the center, making a cup around the filling (you could use a jumbo muffin tin for this too). Brush with eggwash.
To each blossom, sprinkle 1 tsp of rolled oats followed by a drizzle of caramel topping into tops of apple filling. Follow with a light sprinkle all over with sugar in the raw.
Bake at 400F for 25-30 minutes or until heated through. Cool on wire rack.
