I was craving a sweet treat but wanted it to be something small and not overly indulgent. After browsing a few blogs, I found the perfect solution on Cookin up north. Usually I am not a huge apple fan but these looked really tasty so I thought I would give it a try.
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 pkg. (14.1 oz.) refrigerated pie crust (I used Pillsbury)
- 3 tbsp melted butter, divided (I used smart balance which has less fat but can be used just like butter)
- 2 medium tart apples, each cut into 8 wedges (I used granny smith)
(From Cookin up north)
- In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon, set aside 1 Tbsp. On a lightly floured surface, unroll the pastry. Brush with 2 Tbsp. melted butter, sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture.
- Cut each sheet into 8 one inch strips, about 8 in. long. Wrap one strip around each apple wedge, placing sugared side of pastry against apple.
- Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet. Brush tops with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar mixture. Bake at 425 for 13-15 minutes or until pastry is golden brown. Serve warm. Makes 16.
They smelled so good that I had to try one as soon as they were out of the oven. Delicious!!! Eric put it perfectly, it had just the right apple to dough ratio!
