    Inside-Out Caramel Apples

    I'm making today but will use Jonagold or some other softer apple than Granny Smith...that way, the apple will cook softer in less time and give that apple pie softness we're looking for. Also like the idea of going down to 350* with the oven temp...the last thing I need is the smoke alarm to go off. Beautiful dessert--especially for those of us in Michigan with our awesome Apples!

    Inside-Out Caramel Apples

    I make these often but I altered the recipe - the oven temp is off... 400F is too high, 350F and tented is much better, but the apple is still a bit too crunchy. I now roll the apples in cinnamon and then microwave for about 2-3 minutes just till they're a bit softer, cool them, roll them again - in brown sugar and cinnamon (The cinnamn does get a bit melted first time around.)then I wrap it in the puff pastry, but start a little higher up on the apple because it does get a bit wet.

    Inside-Out Caramel Apples

    Definitely knew that 400 degrees was too high so adjusted to 350 and covered with aluminum foil tent and baked for 25 minutes until I could poke a skewer into the apple easily. This is a great recipe and tasted great! Just bake at 350

    Inside-Out Caramel Apples

    Apple was too hard and had to use a knife to cut. Wish apple was softer. Had to take out of oven as starting to burn.

    The cooking time needs to be adjusted, the pastry was done but the apple was still very crunchy- had to cut it with a knife. Not sure how to have the apple cooked all the way through without burning the pastry. It's a good idea, but just didn't come out as expected.
