Don’t you love Pinterest? I do. I found this recipe, pinned it then made it. Before Pinterest I would have seen the site and thought how nice it would be to make that but would never get around to it because I didn’t have an easy way to keep track of which site it was on.
I have to give credit where credit is due. This recipe (with a few little tweaks of my own) came from a blog called Lululu At Home. Thanks Lulu!
4 apples*, peeled, cored and sliced
2 Tbs. butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbs apple cider
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 pieces of thawed puff pastry**
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 Tbs. raw sugar
*I used Honey Crisp but Granny Smith or Gala would be nice too.
**I’ve had lots of luck with Pepperidge Farm puff pastry which can be found in the frozen section with desserts.
Put apples, butter, brown sugar, cider and cinnamon in a skillet. Cook over medium heat for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the apples are very soft. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place one piece of puff pastry on it, and spoon the apple mixture on top, leaving one inch boarder. Place another piece of puff pasty to cover the mixture. Fold the edges over and crimp the boarder with a fork to seal it.
Brush the pie with the beaten egg. Sprinkle the top with raw sugar.
Cut a few little slits with a sharp paring knife on top of the pie to let the air out while baking.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until pastry puffs up and turns golden brown.
Serve with ice cream.
