Ingredients

Pie Dough Nacho Chips

  • cups (10.5 ounces or 313g) all-purpose flour
  • teaspoons salt
  • ¼ 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

Apple Topping

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 medium apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1-2 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • ¼ cup cinnamon-sugar mixture, remaining from the batch made for the chip toppings

Garnish

  • Whipped Cream
  • Caramel Sauce

Instructions

  • 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.

Apple Topping

  • 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).
