Wow Your Holiday Guests with This Simple Pinterest-Worthy Dessert Recipe Using Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets



I seriously cannot believe we're looking at the end of September already. Autumn is my favorite time of year but it's an absolute whirlwind with activities, events, the holidays, and my son's birthday. I set up my Christmas planner over the weekend so we could start to plan and budget gifts, family travel, and holiday meals. 
We'll be keeping it low key this Thanksgiving and will likely spend it with my grandparents and in-laws. I'll be making these personal apple "pies" for everyone using Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets. I hadn't used these before, so we did a trial run. Oh my goodness! They're so simple to use and the perfect ingredient for a holiday dessert or appetizer.
You can find the Puff Pastry Sheets in the frozen section. (See my cute little helper model there? Haha.) 


Recipe Serves 6
Ingredients:
  • 1 box Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry
  • 2 large apples (I used Granny Smith here but will likely use red apples for Thanksgiving.)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons flour 
  • 3 tablespoons organic brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 beaten egg
 Directions
 1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. 
2. Thaw out the Puff Pastry according to the packaging directions. (30-40 min.) 
3. Peel, core, and chop apples. (You may notice that I didn't peel my apples in the photos. This is really up to you but most people peel to avoid and sticking while eating.) 
4. Add chopped apples to a mixing bowl and combine flour, lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. 
5. Once thawed, roll out the Puff Pastry Sheets onto a floured surface. Cut wear scored into 3 and then once across the middle in the opposite direction. There should be 6 pieces, yielding 3 "pies" per roll. There are 2 rolls.  
6. Spoon apple mixture into the center of one of the Puff Pastry Sheets. Brush the edge with beaten egg.  
7. Cut an L shape into the center of the top sheets and place on top of the fillings to create pockets. Seal and decorate by pressing the edges down with a fork. Fold back the L shape on top to allow for venting.  
8. Using the beaten egg, brush the sides and on/around the open vent. This egg wash will bring out the pastry's golden color.  
9. Place the pies onto a cookie sheet and back for 20 min.  
10. Serve warm, a la mode. Enjoy the light, airy, and golden flakey deliciousness!
