‘Apple caramel’ are two words that just belong together. Just seeing them side by side, all snuggled up together and cozy, is enough to make one feel nostalgic warm fuzzies. Of course, caramel apples are the prototypical way to enjoy this star-crossed combination of flavors, but it is equally irresistible in pies, tarts, and crumbles. And this recipe lets you get that lovely experience raw!
One of the start pieces in these apple caramel tarts is the pecan crust. Something stupendous happens when pecans are sweetened. It’s ineffable, it’s magical, and it’s perfect for the holiday season. Or any other time, really! You can’t go wrong with a crust made from pecans.
