Apple Blossoms Recipe with Salted Caramel Sauce | Get the recipe for these crusty apple blossom tarts with an oatmeal and coarse sugar topping and a salted caramel sauce.
It is so exciting to get back to fall baking! I am thrilled to bring you this apple recipe today for this Taste of the Season series hosted by the talented Kristen of Ella Claire. Make sure to visit the bottom of the post to see all of the delicious recipes. I cannot wait to try them!
Apple Blossoms are actually a food that has been enjoyed in my family for many years on Christmas morning. In the interest of full disclosure- we didn’t make them from scratch, but would instead buy them frozen from our local grocery store. They were just absolutely delicious! Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to find them for years, so I decided to research a way to create my own recipe.
There’s this recipe, which seemed to be a similar concept, although I have never heard of that brand. Instead of the crust from that recipe, I always love Ina Garten’s Perfect Pie Crust. I couldn’t find my large flower cookie cutter, but next time I make these I will definitely be using one. The petals fold up better than overlapping the crust.
I also wanted to add a bit of interest, so I decided to add a salted caramel sauce. Truly, I will just take any excuse to eat salted caramel, it’s my favorite.
These are best by far served a la mode. Drizzle some extra salted caramel sauce over (don’t be shy).

Apple Blossoms Recipe with Salted Caramel Sauce
Crusty apple tarts with an oatmeal and coarse sugar topping and a salted caramel sauce.
- 2 Pie Crusts Store bought or Ina Garten's Perfect Pie Crust (linked below)
- 5 apples peeled, cored, sliced small Gala or Honeycrisp are my favorites
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp cornstarch
- 1/2 tsp apple pie spice
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
Salted Caramel Sauce
- 1 cup sugar
- 6 tbsp salted butter cut in pieces
- 1/2 cup heavy cream milk will work in a pinch
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 egg whisked
- 1 tbsp water
- 8 tsp rolled oats
- 8 tsp coarse turbinado sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Make dough or roll out store bought crusts on a floured surface. Cut into 6-8 five inch circles, or if you have a large flower cookie cutter you may use that as well. Place each onto baking sheet.
Mix all filling ingredients together and set aside.
Salted Caramel Sauce
Heat sugar over medium heat, stirring continuously. Sugar will eventually melt into a thick brown liquid. Slowly add slices of butter until melted. Slowly add milk or cream. Be cautious, the caramel will foam when the colder milk is added. Allow to boil for one minute. Stir in sea salt. Set aside, allow to cool.
Mix whisked egg with water. Set aside.
Place 1/8 of the filling in the center of each crust. Fold up the edges, (or petals if you've used a flower cutter) creating a cup around the filling. Brush with eggwash.
To each blossom, tuck in 1 tsp of rolled oats. Follow by drizzles of salted caramel topping. Follow with a sprinkle of coarse sugar all over.
Bake at 400F for 25-30 minutes or until heated through. Cool on wire racks. Serve with additional Salted Caramel Sauce.
