“An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Have you ever used that line on your kids to encourage them to eat more apples? If they aren’t falling for it, I have a recipe for you. Puffed Stuffed Apples served in Vanilla Sauce!
Let’s get started.
Puff pastry (found in the freezer section of the grocery store)
4 Honeycrisp apples
½ cup of Brown sugar
2 tsp of Ground cinnamon
¼ cup of Dried cranberries
¼ cup of Chopped walnuts
1 beaten Egg (for an egg wash)
Start with 4 Honeycrisp apples. Fuji is also a good choice. Wash them well and core them.
Mix together the cinnamon, chopped walnuts, cranberries, and brown sugar. This is getting exciting!
Roll out your puff pastry on a floured surface until it is twice its original size. Use one sheet of dough for 4 medium size apples. Cut the dough into 4 sections. Place one apple in the center of the dough, and stuff it with the filling mixture. Let’s get this apple party started!
Start wrapping the apple one corner at a time, using the egg wash to seal each side.
Place the wrapped apple seal side down on a baking sheet. Brush egg wash on the remaining part of each apple. I added some decorative leaves because they’re always cute. (You can make these by cutting them out freehand or using leaf-shaped cookie cutters.) Repeat the process, and bake for 30-40 minutes (depending on the size of apple). You want the apple to be soft on the inside and the puff pastry to be golden brown on the outside.
Yuuuummmmyyyy!!!!!! That vanilla sauce? It’s vanilla ice cream. Yep! Just place your finished Fall Stuffed Apple in the melted ice cream, and serve. Make sure you buy a good brand of vanilla bean ice cream. Your family will love it!
You can serve this as a side or as a dessert. This is something you can make and serve all season long. Adults love it, kids love it, and I am sure all your guests will love it. I try to learn something every time I cook, and I have learned that these apples are goooood!
