It seems like no holiday meal is complete without apple pie. This year, I wanted to recreate the classic American dessert by giving it a few simple tweaks. My salted caramel apple tart recipe only calls for a handful of ingredients to make a delicious, gluten-free dessert that everyone can enjoy. Tender, tart apples complement the salty-sweet caramel sauce and flaky crust for a treat that’s sure to leave a lasting impression at any gathering.

The gluten-free crust I used for this recipe is the quickest, easiest homemade crust I’ve ever made. Almond flour is my go-to gluten-free baking ingredient, and it makes a delicious, firm crust. I love how almond flour is rich in protein, fiber and healthy fats unlike white flour, which is void of nutrients. For the crust, I simply mixed the almond flour with coconut oil and maple syrup for a hint of sweetness. Coconut oil is a great alternative to butter that produces a sturdy, yet flaky crust.

Another huge bonus of this recipe is that it’s super quick and easy-to-make, yet it looks and tastes like you spent hours on it. I did my best to arrange the apple slices in concentric circles for a touch of elegance, though you can arrange them however you like! I prefer using Granny Smith apples for pies because their natural tartness complements the sweet flavor of the sauce.

Speaking of sweetness, nothing beats this irresistible salted caramel sauce. This award-winning delight provides the perfect amount of sticky sweet flavor with a hint of salt. The only way to make this apple tart even better is to serve it a la mode: topped with vanilla ice cream. Make sure to drizzle a spoonful of decadent salted caramel sauce over your ice cream, as well. One bite and you’ll agree that this salted caramel apple tart recipe really takes ordinary apple pie to the next level!
