An Apple a Day…

I have a great idea for you. If you are not a great pie baker but want to enjoy a homemade apple pie? Try making my incredibly easy Puff Pastry in a Hurry seen on my YouTube channel or on this website, or buy all-ready made frozen puff pastry from the grocery store.

Roll the pastry out to a large square or circle. If using the frozen variety allow it to thaw in the fridge first. Fold the edges in a bit to create a border. Place thinly sliced apples, about 2-3, that have been combined with some sugar, about 1/3 cup; a small amount of flour, about 1 teaspoon; and some apple pie spice, about 1/2 teaspoon; all over the pastry leaving the border uncovered. Scatter a few tablespoons of unsalted butter cut into tiny dice all over the apples.

Egg wash the edges and bake the “pie” at 400 degrees until the pastry has puffed and the edges are brown, about 20-30 minutes. The apples should be soft and brown in places.

Vanilla ice cream would be a perfect accompaniment!!

Happy Baking!
