Caramel-Apple Pie Triangle Treats

Oh my gosh y’all!  I am so HAPPY that the Crazy Cooking Challenge is BACK!!



I had no idea I had joined 9 months into a 12 month project.  I was terribly sad to find out the Cheesecake round (which I missed getting a recipe up for, boo) was month 12.  A dark cloud hung over my kitchen.  Then last month, Tina sent out an email – CCC was coming back.  JOY!!  Last month’s Ranch Dressing round had a 2 day notice (which didn’t happen for me), but I knew I couldn’t wait to put together an Apple Pie recipe for October.  So here we are.  Cooking with Tina and so many other great bloggers again.

Caramel-Apple Pie Triangle Treats

  • 1 cup caramel squares snipped in half {I used Kraft, in the yellow bag}
  • 3 tablespoons cinnamon dried apples chopped
  • 3 tablespoons pecans chopped
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1 – 0.74 ounce package spiced apple cider mix
  • 16 sheets frozen phyllo dough 9″x14″, thawed
  • Powdered sugar to garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (or your handy dandy Sil-Pat); set aside.
  2. Prep your filling: snip caramels, chop dried apples, and chop pecans. Mix everything together in a bowl.
  3. Lay out phyllo dough on a cookie sheet. Cover phyllo dough with damp paper towels or a damp kitchen towel to prevent dough from drying out.
  4. In a small bowl, combine melted butter and apple cider mix.
  5. Place one phyllo sheet on your work surface {one again my Roul’Pat is the best thing EVER!}. Brush dough with butter/cider mixture. Place another sheet of phyllo on top; brush with butter mixture. Repeat, adding two more sheet of phyllo (4 total).
  6. Using a sharp knife, cut the layered sheets lengthwise into four equal strips. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of filling onto each strip at one end. {I put 3 caramel pieces and some nuts and apples.}
  7. To fold strip into a triangle, bring a corner over filling so the short edge lines up with the long edge. Continue folding the triangular shape along the entire length of the strip. {This sounds harder than it is.}
  8. Place filled triangle on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining three strips, then repeat using remaining phyllo, butter mixture, and filling. Brush triangles with remaining butter mixture.
  9. Bake about 15 minutes or until triangles are crisp and golden brown. Cool slightly on baking sheet; dust with powdered sugar.

    Love this idea! Definitely pinning this one!

    And ohhhh mannnnn…. I didn't get an email about this CCC. 🙁 I got the one about the ranch dressing, but skipped it too because of the short notice.

    Apple pie is one of my favorite things–I used to ask for it in place if birthday cake. Then here comes you wrapping it up in phyllo. Don't know how apple pie can get any better. Thanks for linking!

    Looks so pretty and yummy! Definitely will be trying these too. I understand how you felt about joining in month 9. I was sad to have missed the stuffing round. LOL I have a great recipe.
