It was a chilly, rainy Autumn evening and after a bowl of hot soup, the girls and I wanted a little something sweet and warm to satisfy us. After rummaging through the fridge, I discovered that I had some left-over pie dough from those yum apple pies and still lots of them apples. It was 6:30 pm and I had no inclination to start pie-baking. Well, how about just wrapping a whole apple with the pie dough? If you recall, there were two different pie doughs, one for the bottom crust and one for the top. Seeing as they were now both mixed up together, I had no idea how this would turn out. But why not give it a try?
I began with peeling and coring the apples whole – and discovered that I really need to get a gadget to core apples. I placed them on top of three pieces of rolled dough.
Just for fun, I sliced up one of the apples to see what that would give.
I made up a little mixture of sugar and cinnamon to sprinkle on the bottom of the dough and over the apples. I also threw in a dab of butter into the centre of the apple – why not?
I wrapped the dough over the apple, brushed it with an egg wash and sprinkled it with sugar.
I baked them in a 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes… and voila! Aren’t they gorgeous?
But how do they taste?
Charlotte’s reaction was, “Oh Mama…if you and Sue do Puces Pop again, you have to make these.”
I guess the kiddies loved them!
I noticed that each of us gobbled them up in different ways. Charlotte ate the apple first and then devoured the crust.
Then there was Emma. She just tossed the apple aside and dived right into the crust.
And then there was me… I just dove right in and gobbled the whole thing up! Oh yum!
