Homemade Caramel Apple Blossoms

We used to buy these through a public school fundraiser called Market Day. They quickly became a favorite of my youngest son but since we homeschool now a days I no longer purchase them through the school. Sam's Club used to sell a similar item but I haven't been able to find those ones anymore.
So, to make the poor boy happy I decided to try to make a homemade version and here is what I came up with.
I went the easy way with canned pie filling but you could always cut and chop fresh apples too! Oh and maybe add a bit of cinnamon.
Homemade Apple Blossoms

1 box refrigerated pie crust (2 crusts)
2 cans apple pie filling
1 (16 oz.) jar of Hershey's Caramel Sauce
Sparkling Sugar Crystals

Unfold crust and cut into quarters.
Roll each quarter out just a little bit bigger.
Place 2 heaping tbsp. of apple filling in center.
Wrap dough up and over the apples leaving the center open.
Place on a greased foil-lined pan.
Bake 450° for 10-15 minutes.
Remove from oven & drizzle caramel over the tops.
Bake 10 more minutes.
Let cool a few minutes and then sprinkle with sugar crystals.
Gently remove blossoms from pan while still warm. (otherwise they will stick)
Enjoy warm, or if you want to save them for later then place each blossom on a piece of waxed paper and let cool. I stored mine in the refrigerator and ate them within a few days but you could also freeze them.
If you freeze them then you could remove them one at a time and microwave.

Hope you enjoy!
