As many of you know by now, I have picky eating family. Picky. Eating. Back in the beginning, there were family members around who would eat all the interesting food I'd make courtesy of Martha, but now between the picky and the family members with dietary issues, food is simple and a small part of our world. Which brings me to my simple easy dessert.
You start out with some puff pastry sheets and some fresh apples. I used 2 apples here. Thaw your pastry sheet out following the package instructions. I lightly roll it, but you can skip that if you like. I slice off about half an inch all around, then use those pieces like a frame. They'll puff up and hold in the juicy apple goodness. Place your thawed framed up puff pastry on a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. You know. Pam. Cooking with Pam!
Peel and core your apples, then slice thin, either with a knife like I did here for a rustic look, or with a mandoline, which gives you nice thin even slices. Dust your pastry with a bit of sugar and cinnamon. Layer on the apples slightly overlapping. Sprinkle more sugar and cinnamon on the apples. Bake at 400 degrees in a preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes till the pastry is puffed and golden brown.
It makes for a nice easy dessert, light and just the right amount of sweet and tart, if you use Granny Smith apples like I did. Puff pastry is a wonderful item to keep stored in your freezer, you can do all kinds of amazing things with it.
This dessert also doubles as a lovely breakfast treat with coffee and a side of sewing! Make one today!
