I adore apple pie, apple spiced cake, apple fritters, caramel apples, easy apple pie bars, etc. This time of year there is really nothing more festive and delicious than apples! Here’s a yummy (and cute!) alternative to apple pie, that has less sugar but without losing any of the deliciousness. You can make these for Thanksgiving or another festive get-together with friends. I recommend planning on serving one baked apple per guest, or 1/2 of one with a large scoop of ice cream on the side.
Baked Apples, makes 3-4
Needed: 3-4 apples (I love Granny Smith, but you can use any variety you like), 1/2 cup chopped pecans, 3-4 tablespoons corn syrup and one package puff pastry sheets.
Peel and core your apples. Now you can get creative and wrap them in (thawed) puff pastry a number of ways. We did ours in a lattice design, a spiral, and with heart cut-outs. Once the apple is mostly covered fill the middle with pecans a little corn syrup. I like to top mine with a little leaf and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Bake at 375 F for 14-18 minutes until the crust is golden brown. Serve with ice cream or a little drizzle of caramel syrup. Enjoy! xo. Emma and Elsie
