Apple Pie Dessert Nachos are made by creating homemade cinnamon-sugar chips, which are then topped with sweetened apples, whipped cream, and a drizzle of caramel. For more delectable nacho treats, be sure to try out my other recipes for Dessert Nachos and Banana Split Nachos.
To begin, gather the ingredients listed below:
- Pie Dough:
- 1 package of premade pie crust
- Cinnamon-sugar mixture (to taste)
- Apple Topping:
- 4 medium-sized apples, peeled and sliced
- 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- Additional Toppings:
- Whipped cream
- Caramel sauce
Now, let's start making the Apple Pie Dessert Nachos:
1. Begin by preheating your oven to the recommended temperature stated on the premade pie crust package.
2. Roll out the pie crust onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Ensure that the crust is evenly distributed.
3. Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture over the pie crust, based on your preference for sweetness. You can make the chips thinner or thicker, depending on your preference.
4. Bake the pie crust in the preheated oven for the recommended time stated on the package. Keep an eye on it to prevent burning.
5. While the pie crust is baking, prepare the apple topping. In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the sliced apples, granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and butter. Cook over medium heat until the apples are tender and the sugar has dissolved. Stir occasionally to ensure even cooking.
6. Once the pie crust chips are baked and golden brown, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly.
7. To assemble the nachos, layer a plate with a base of the baked pie crust chips. Top the chips with the prepared apple topping, followed by dollops of whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce.
8. For added decadence, feel free to create another layer of pie crust chips and toppings. To make it even more delightful, consider adding a scoop of ice cream and some chopped pecans.
