You guys. This past week I made my first ever Cream Horns. Caramel Apple Pie Cream Horns to be exact. As with many of my desserts, my goal in this one was to impress my husband.
You see, Richy is a huge fan of Apple Pie! And it doesn’t need to be fancy… just a reallly good Apple Pie with a scoop of ice cream and he’s set.
But when I was offered an opportunity to work with Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets, my first idea was to make little “mini” apple pies. And then I wanted to add my Easy Homemade Caramel Sauce. I also started toying with an idea to someone incorporate cream cheese. Because why not?
Anyway… long story short: I finally landed on these little Mini Caramel Apple Pie Cream Horns. Golden cream horns filled with a cream cheese custard and apple pie filling, then topped with caramel and more custard.
How perfect does that sound?
Okay, so let me show you how easy it is to make these… here’s a video:
See? Not bad at all, right?!
They really are perfect. With Fall upon us and all the good holidays just around the corner, you will impress your guests with these. I certainly impressed my husband!

And you know what I like best about this dessert? The pastry. Puff Pastry Sheets made the perfect “crust” to hold all this cream cheese and apple pie goodness. I brushed them with egg wash and sprinkled with a little sugar to really bring out the golden color and add a little crispness.
The other thing I love about this dessert is that it makes 24 desserts… perfect for a Fall party or Thanksgiving gathering.
So, here’s what you’ll need to make this dessert:
I know it looks like a lot (and the apples are there just for pretty), but the recipe is really easy to pull together. Please note – you will need Cream Horn Molds to make this recipe. If you don’t have those, you can wrap aluminum foil around sugar cones and you’ll have homemade cream horn molds.
