Apple Pie Dessert Nachos
Pie Dough Nacho Chips
2 1/2 cups (10.5 ounces or 313g) all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup (51g) shortening
10 tablespoons (142g) unsalted butter, cold and cubed
6-10 tablespoons water, cold
Pie Dough Nacho Chip Topping
3 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 tablespoons butter
2 medium apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
1-2 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup cinnamon-sugar mixture, remaining from the batch made for the chip toppings
Heat oven to 350°F. Prepare baking pans with parchment paper.
Pie Dough Nacho Chips
Cube butter and place in the refrigerator until ready to add to the dough.
Add flour, salt, and vegetable shortening into the bowl of a stand mixer. Use the paddle attachment on the lowest setting (#2) to evenly combine. Do not skip this step!
Add butter cubes to the stand mixer and slowly mix into the flour/shortening mixture.
Beat on a low setting until the mixture is unevenly crumbly. Crumbs and clumps are good.
Slowly drizzle in the ice-cold water as the mixer is running.
When the mixture comes together and does not appear dry, you are done.
Pour out the dough and divide into two pieces. Roll out one piece on a clean counter that has been dusted with flour. Wrap other dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.
Roll dough very thin. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut out triangles. Place triangles on a parchment-lined baking sheet fairly close together.
Pie Dough Nacho Chips Topping
In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon. Reserve 1/4 cup of the cinnamon-sugar mixture for the apple topping.
Brush melted butter over each piece and sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Bake triangles for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, remove from the oven and carefully flip over each chip.
Brush with butter, working with 5 chips at a time, and then sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar. Repeat with remaining chips on baking pans.
Return to oven for 5 more minutes. The pie chips should appear dry and be firm when they are done.
Allow to cool before assembling.
Core, peel, and dice apples into small cubes. Place them in a bowl and sprinkle with fresh lemon juice.
Then, thoroughly coat the apples with 1/4 cup of cinnamon sugar.
In a medium saucepan, melt butter under medium heat. Add in apple mixture and saute several minutes until soft and tender. (Anywhere from 5-10 minutes depending on how big the apple pieces are.) You will know the apples are done when the cinnamon sugar sauce starts to thicken.
On a large serving plate, place a layer of pie crust nachos and add apple mixture on top.
Repeat with another layer if desired.
Top with whipped cream and caramel drizzle (optional).
