Apple Pie Pinwheels

These are made with store bought puff pastry and filled with apples and cinnamon. They taste like apple pie in a flaky bite made quickly.

You will need:
  • 2 apples peeled and sliced thin with a mandolin
  • 2 tbsp vanilla sugar
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 sheet all butter puff pastry (makes 6 rolls)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp additional ground cinnamon
  • butter to coat muffin tins

Step 1: peel and slice apples very thinly.

Step 2: in a small pan cook apples, vanilla sugar, salt and cinnamon until water cooks out and they get soft 10 minutes. Let cool completely before spreading on puff pastry.

Step 3: roll out puff pastry. Sprinkle with brown sugar, cooled apples, then top with additional cinnamon. Roll up.

Step 4: press sides together to seal. With a serrated knife cut in half and then each half into 3 equal pieces. Place  in buttered muffin tin. Makes 6.

Bake in 375 degrees F oven for 30-35 minutes until browned and bubbly.

wait 2 minutes then carefully remove and sprinkle with powdered sugar or add some whipped cream or you can create a icing sugar and water drizzle.

eat while they are still warm!!
