Individually wrapped apples in dough
We went apple-picking in October and like everyone else I know, we picked way too many.
So, when I saw the idea for wrapping apples in Lisa Caponigri's "Whatever Happened to Sunday Dinner?" cookbook, I thought, we'll that sounds interesting. Maybe I can use up a few more apples...
But when I got to the store, I couldn't remember if she had said phyllo dough or puff pastry. I came home with puff and of course, that was wrong.
So, I googled the idea and found out there are oodles of recipes for apples wrapped in dough. The oldest version being an apple dumpling, which uses pie crust, but there are lots of recipes for apples wrapped in all kinds of doughs, including Pillsbury crescent rolls, as well as puff pastry. Many are called apple bombs.
The one I ended up using is from a food blog called A Spicy Perspective.
Sommer's recipe incorporates a salted caramel in the middle of the apple, which we did not have, but we DID have some store-bought sauce, so that became my theme.
Well, mine weren't pretty but they were indeed tasty. You can see, if you click, how nice they should look if you go to Sommer's blog. https://www.aspicyperspective.com/baked-apple-recipe/
