Pastrys – Apple Dumplings

A few days ago I posted the recipe for Flakey Puff Pastry.  Here I am going to show you some things to do with the puff pastry.  I will discuss how to make breakfast pastry’s and desserts.  This recipe is so versatile, you can even use it in a main course – maybe a chicken pot pie?

Apple Dumplings

apples, peeled, cored, and sliced

burnt craisins (recipe on this website)

cinnamon

sugar

butter

puff pastry recipe (recipe on this website)

1 egg (lightly beaten with 1 T water)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Roll out the puff pastry as thin as you can.  Place the apples in a mound on the dough

(I show a whole apple and while either way will work, the sliced apples makes it easier to eat.)

Sprinkle the burnt craisins, sugar, cinnamon, and a pat of butter on top and fold the dough over to make a “bundle”.  Cut a small hole in the top for a vent.  Brush with egg/water and place on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown and puffy.
