Shortcut Caramel Apple Empanadas


"I came up with this super simple recipe when I was cooking a large dinner, I wanted the desert to be as little fuss as possible, but taste great and this is what I came up with! I love apple empanadas and i love the combination of caramel with the pie filling, these are worth treating myself too! I like to deep fry mine, but i'm sure these would taste great baked in the oven also."
