  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  6. On a floured surface, roll out the puff pastry to about 1/8-inch thickness.
  7. Cut the pastry into 6 circles, each about 4 inches in diameter.
  8. Place the circles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  9. Brush the beaten egg over the circles.
  10. Divide the caramel mixture between the circles, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edges.
  11. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the pastry is golden brown and crispy.
  12. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Recipes FAQ

  • Q: Can I use pre-made caramel sauce instead of making my own?
  • A: While pre-made caramel sauce can be used in a pinch, the homemade version is much richer and more flavorful.
  • Q: Can I make this recipe ahead of time?
  • A: Yes, you can prepare the caramel mixture and puff pastry circles ahead of time and assemble them just before baking.
  • Q: Can I use a different type of nut instead of pecans?
  • A: Yes, you can substitute any nut you prefer, such as almonds or walnuts.

Recipes Tips

To ensure your puff pastry circles bake evenly, prick them all over with a fork before baking. This will prevent them from puffing up too much in the oven.

For an extra indulgent dessert, serve the Salted Caramel Crowns with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

If you don’t have sea salt on hand, you can use regular table salt instead. Just be sure to use a little less, as table salt is more concentrated than sea salt.
