This recipe is just perfect for the holidays! It's full of warm spices like cinnamon and nutmeg with a hint of sweetness from the delicious Fowler Farms Empire Apples. These apples are especially great for baking because they are extra crunchy and give this dessert a wonderful texture. We made this recipe even easier by using store-bought pizza dough and caramel sauce.
Ooey-gooey caramel sauce, warm spices, and sweet apples - could there be anything better?
