Can you believe I make 36 of these mini Toffee Apple Tartlets, using ONE apple! Yes, only one apple and there was another spoonful or two of the filling left.

I used ready-made mini pie shells and filled them with the filling below – you can use any shell, mini, medium or the large ones. Or, if you have the time, make your own from scratch.

The Toffee definitely overpowers the Apple in this recipe, therefore, do not expect an apple pie type of thing, the Apple taste is there, just enough to let you know what you are putting in your mouth!

Be warned though, these little sweet treats are addicting ! I usually have way more than I really should, which I suppose is not very good for my waistline, but then again, who can say no to such a decadent little treat ?

Use any soft (easy melting) Toffees, or you can use soft Caramels as well, which I have found to be more readily available than a soft Toffee.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 36 Mini Pie Shells, ready-made

  • 2 TB Butter, melted
  • 1 t Icing Sugar, to dust (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS:

    1.) Pre-heat the oven to 200 deg C (375 deg F) – line a baking sheet with baking paper.

    3.) Combine the Apple pieces, Toffee pieces, Brown Sugar and Butter in a small bowl – let stand for 5 minutes.
    4.) Spoon into the Pie shells (it is okay to pile it up – the filling will settle whilst baking) – bake 10 – 15 minutes until bubbly – remove from oven – transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.
Dust with Icing Sugar (if using) and serve !

  3. This sound delicious, and so easy to make. I think I may buy a Pie Crust and cut circles and do them in a muffin tin. Can't wait to give it a try. I'm here from Swap 'N Share.

  4. Love the idea of combing toffee with the apples, and right now I'm craving something sweet and one of your apple tarts would do the trick.

  5. These look amazing! Just pinned this one, too! Thanks so much for sharing with us at a Bouquet of Talent!! You have been one busy lady. 🙂
