Puff Pastry = Easy Dessert Recipes!
So the holidays are upon us – with American Thanksgiving only days away, and then there is Hannukah, Christmas, lots of time for celebrations and family get togethers. I love getting together with my family and creating delicious treats and of course pies are always on the menu! For our Thanksgiving we always have the traditional favorites, pumpkin pie, lemon meringue pie, and Krissy’s favorite – chocolate cream pie. It’s a lot of baking but always a labour of love.
But I was thinking that everyone needs a little pie baking hack they can count on – and this recipe is it for me. What could be easier than frozen puff pastry and apple pie filling. I’ve added some spices, brown sugar and voila! Spiced Apple Pie in Puff Pastry. This is so easy you can make it with your kids or grandkids! Served warm with French Vanilla Ice Cream, it’s the bomb.
1 sheet butter puff pastry -thawed
1 can apple pie filling
¼ cup chopped walnuts
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp ginger
Preheat oven to 400F
Mix the apple pie filling, nuts and spices into a small bowl and set aside
Place thawed puff pastry (already on parchment paper) onto a cookie sheet
Using the pastry cutter, cut the sheet diagonally, as shown in the lecture
Spoon small amounts of spiced apple filling onto each triangle
Fold each edge of the triangle into the centre
Top with pie filling in the centre
Bake for 20 minutes until crust is golden and filling is bubbling.
Garnish with extra spiced apple filling in the centre before serving.
Easy as pie!
