For some reason I cannot make something apple without also making caramel. To me you can not have one without the other. And so on Wednesday I made some caramel for the Pumpkin Pecan Caramel Pie I baked. I also had an apple left. Clearly I had to make something else. I was also deep in the midst of making some Cranberry Orange Galettes.
That was obviously the solution staring me in the face. thinly slice the apples. Top them in tasting fillings. Arrange them beautifully in a fan. Pinch up the sides and wrap the apples up. Bake. Drizzle in caramel.
Perfection. There is something too about the smell of a pie baking, especially when it’s apples and cinnamon. It makes the kitchen smell like Fall and Thanksgiving.

How to Make it Happen:
Make your favorite gluten-free pie recipe. Flatten. Roll dough out between two pieces of parchment. Trim dough so it’s in a circle.
Slice pears. Toss with maple, maple sugar, almond flour, and cinnamon. Arrange neatly in the center of the dough. Gently fold up the dough. Brush with a beaten egg.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes until pears are tender and the crust is golden in color.
Drizzle with caramel, eat and enjoy!
