Instructions:

  3. For the filling, add sugar and water into a saucepan and bring to a bowl. Cook until it begins to caramelize.
  4. Then, slowly whisk the heavy cream into the mixture while keeping it at a boil. Next, add butter and sea salt, and bring back to a boil. Simmer on low until the mixture reduces to half.
  5. Now, add the apples, flour, and cinnamon and bring back to a boil. Continue to simmer until it becomes thick like honey. Let the filling cool to room temperature.
  6. Once the filling is cooled, place the sticky side of the dough down and fill with about 4-6 tablespoons of the filling.
  7. Brush the edges of the dough with water and fold in half, then press down the edges with a fork. Using a knife, slice 3 small holes in the top of the dough.
  8. Next, place the pies on a parchment (#1153) lined cookie sheet (#4020). Sprinkle the top with 1/8 tsp sugar/sea salt mixture, then place in the oven at 375F for 20-25 minutes, or until the crust is flaky and golden brown. Serve warm. It is delicious with a scoop of ice cream on top.
