We will begin picking Pixie Crunch apples on the farm soon. Pixie Crunch is a relatively new apple here at Eckert’s. But let me tell you, people LOVE it! Our staff gave it rave reviews in a recent tour of the farm. Some of them even liked it better than HoneyCrisp! Pixie Crunch is a sweet, crisp and juicy apple which makes it a perfect eating apple. This week, I decided to see how it performed in the kitchen in a modified version of my beloved Apple Goodie Recipe. I am calling my new concoction Salted Caramel Apple Goodie.

Last year, I came across a version of salted caramel apple filling and I have been in love with the idea ever since. Today I finally made the caramel filling and combined it with the Apple Goodie topping recipe. Caramel lovers watch out-this combo will have your mouth watering before it even reaches your lips!

This dessert takes a little time to make so be sure you aren’t in a hurry when you take it on. But I promise you, the resulting dessert will be well worth your time and effort.

I was very pleased with the flavor and texture of baked Pixie Crunch apples. This recipe would also be heavenly with Jonathon, Golden Delicious or Granny Smith apples.

When I am pinched for time, I will continue to make Apple Goodie (found on page 66 of the Eckert Family Fall Cookbook). But, when I have extra time to spare and a craving for caramel apples, I will be making Salted Caramel Apple Goodie for sure!

Eat well this Fall, Angie
