How to make apple pie fries

Print this recipe
Apple pie fries. Sounds odd, doesn't it? It did to me when I first heard of them, as I pictured apple pie filling piled onto French fries. But don't worry; there is not a potato in sight. Instead, as you'll see in the recipe below, these "fries" consist of applesauce that is simply spooned between two sheets of ready-made pie crust dough and then baked until crisp in the oven.
The recipe also calls for caramel sauce to be drizzled over the top of those delicious fries, but I've taken it one step further and actually put some of the caramel sauce right inside the fries. Because in my house, there's no such thing as too much caramel sauce.
