Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cool the apple mixture completely.
2
Unfold puff pastry on a large sheet of parchment paper; roll into a 16x12 inch rectangle. Place a short side of the rectangle facing you.
Using a slotted spoon, arrange apples on bottom half of pastry to within 1 inch of edges.
Drizzle apples with caramel topping. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with the bottom side.
Pinch seams to seal and tuck ends under.
