Baked Apple Recipe

Baked Apples at their best! Our baked apple recipe, lovingly called “Apple Bombs” is like fireworks of fall flavor. These babies are easier to whip up than a classic apple pie and are fun to wrap and give as edible gifts!

That’s all I have to say about this recipe.

Ok, not really… I have A LOT to say today.

Like, if you’ve ever wanted to make apple pie but thought it was too complicated (or required too much slicing and rolling.)

If you’ve ever had an intense apple craving in the cusp of fall.

If you’ve ever felt like there is no dessert that can compare to caramel apples, apple pie, or apple turnovers…

This baked apple recipe is going to blow your mind.

Can I say boom again?

These individually wrapped mini apple pies are like nothing you’ve ever experienced. (I’m guessing.)

The apples are lightly coated in sugar, so the true apple essence really shines through. Each whole baked apple is tender, yet firm on the inside, with a crisp golden pastry wrapper for buttery crunch.

Oh, and did I mention there are caramels stuffed in the hollowed core of each apple? They melt and fill the hole.


(Sorry, couldn’t help myself. I’ll stop now.)

Each apple is rolled in a spice sugar mixture, stuffed with caramels, then wrapped in puff pastry. The wrapping process is as easy as wrapping a package. Simply press the tops together and let the corners folder over.

Then brush with egg wash and sprinkle with course sugar.

Once your apple bombs are wrapped and sugared, place them in the freezer for 15 minutes. This will harden the pastry around the apple to ensure it doesn’t slump while baking.

After they’ve cooled a little, you have the option of picking them up with both hands and biting right through the puff pastry, drizzling with caramel sauce and using a knife and fork, or wrapping them individually for amazing edible gifts.

I like mine drizzled in caramel… you can never have too much caramel.

    Oooohh, baked apples are amazing! Any tips on coring them?

    • Sommerposted September 19, 2014 at 11:40 am Reply

      Hi Matea, I used a circular apple core tool. They are cheap and you can find them at Target or any kitchen store. You can see it in the third image.

    If you wrap them individually for gifts, would you eat it cold or reheat it? Have you tried one a day or two after making them? Thanks!

    • Sommerposted September 21, 2014 at 7:41 am Reply

      I would give them away with instructions to: refrigerate, eat within 3 days, and to warm slightly in the oven so they aren’t cold. Room temperature is fine, but not cold.

    could you use pie crust instead of puff pastry?

    • Sommerposted September 22, 2014 at 7:57 pm Reply

      Hi Stacey! Probably so, but the crust will be more dense than flaky. Let me know how it turns out if you try it!

      • Estherposted March 14, 2016 at 4:59 pm


        These look great. Just wondering if anyone tried freezing the assembled pastry for a week before baking. I need something that can be prepared in advance.

    Have you ever tried it with nut butters instead of caramel, yummy! Love apples and peanut butter together.

  32. anonymouosposted September 30, 2014 at 9:35 pm Reply

    I just made them, and spread the seeds of one fresh vanilla bean over the surface of each apple; the smell alone while they baked was heavenly, and the flavor was wonderful. It is a great fall dessert!

    I made these over the weekend. They were loads of fun to make but the 25 mins bake time, was perfect for the puff pastry, however, the apples could have been baked for a little longer. They were still a bit on the hard side and the caramels didn’t all melt :(

    Family loved them anyways, but i may try reducing temperature a bit and bake for a little longer next time.

    • JoyceKposted August 22, 2016 at 3:05 am Reply

      @Canuck_Cook; THANK YOU for commenting AFTER you made these! Your honest comments about the baking time is what I was wondering about, just based on my experience versus the recipe. Now I know! Wish everyone would reserve comments until they had made the recipe.

    We have a recipe in my area like this we call an apple dumpling, we use a pie dough for it, I usually cut the apple up more so that it can cook through really well. We also do a carmelized sugar sauce drizzled over after baking. Great with ice cream, whipped cream, or my favorite is with a bit of milk!
