Apple Pie Tarts

Pie crust dough for one pie
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons butter
2 cups diced peeled tart apples
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons caramel ice cream topping
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon salt

Crust Instructions: Roll out pie dough and cut into twenty 2-1/2-in. circles. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of miniature muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Prick pastry with a fork. Spray lightly with cooking spray. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over pastry. Bake at 350° for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown. Cool.

Filling Instructions: In a saucepan, melt butter. Add apples; cook and stir over medium heat for 4-5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Stir in the sugar, caramel topping, flour, cinnamon, lemon juice and salt. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until sauce is thickened and apples are tender. Cool for 5 minutes. Spoon into tart shells. Yield: 10 servings.

Crusts can be made ahead of time.
