Apple Pie Puffs and an Award

I can’t believe it, I just got another award. This award comes from Stephanie at Fun Foods on a Budget. Thanks Stephanie!

So here’s the rules for this award. Please find at least 10 more blogs, of any kind that you love to read. Write a post about the blogs you picked, linking back to me and to them. Once you’ve posted, return here to let me know your post is done and be sure to let them know too!!! (If you don’t come up with 10, that’s fine too!) So here are my 10 awards.
The Sisters Dish – Amy has a lot of tasty recipes. I just posted her recipe for Molly’s Rolls and I also got the recipe I posted for Oatmeal Cinnamon Zucchini Bread. That bread is now a favorite at our house. She also recently posted a recipe for Creamy Ranch Enchiladas that I have in my to try recipe folder.
The Sisters’ Cafe – I can’t believe I haven’t given them an award yet. If you know Melanie at my Kitchen Cafe, she is related to these sisters through marriage. My posts for Fiesta Chicken Pasta Salad and Crock pot Southwestern Chicken Nachos recipes came from these ladies. They always have awesome recipes.
The Open Pantry – I have to thank Emily form the Open Pantry for her recipe for Ham and Cheesy Noodle Casserole. It is now in the family favorite category at our house. I am also holding on to a recipe she posted for Raspberry Truffles. I can’t wait to try them.
My Favorite Recipes – Whitney recently posted recipes for Key Lime Pie and Rolo Cookies. I can’t wait to try those, especially the Rolo Cookies. Yum!
On My Menu – Marci had an awesome recipe she recently posted for Foil Packed Chicken Fajita Dinner. Too bad most of my family won’t eat fajitas. She also posted a recipe for Easy Peanut Butter Cookies that I need to try. It only takes 4 ingredients and is gluten free.
Good Stuff Maynard – This site has several contributors including Sherri who use to have a blog called Kaysville Momma. I can’t wait to try Sherri’s recipe for Texas Roadhouse Rolls. If you’ve ever eaten at a Texas Roadhouse restaurant there rolls are delish. I am also holding on to a recipe that was posted by Shanna for Mandarin Orange Cake.
Clouse Cousins Cookin -This site is full of recipes from all the Clouse cousins. I recently posted a recipe from Marsha for Coleslaw. Thanks again Shanna. There’s also a great recipe from Camilee for Cheesecake Lemon Bars that I am holding on to.
Dinner’s Ready – I have several recipes that I am holding onto from this site. It has a bunch of contributors. I can wait to try Chicken Florentine from Jamie Y and Crock pot Refried Beans from Chelsea.
Taste Buds – I love Annemarie’s site. I have saved her recipe for Brown Sugar Chewies to try.
Cast Sugar – You have got to check out Nemmie’s site. She posted a recipe this week for Hershey’s Candy Corn Cookies using the new Hershey’s Candy Corn Kisses. They look fabulous.

Now that business is over, on to the recipe! I got this recipe from Stephanie at Stephanie’s Kitchen. I did slightly modify the recipe. It was quick and tasty. My only suggestion is not make sure you give the apple mixture plenty of time to cool. I gave mine an hour and it was still too warm. The puff pastry dough was sticking to my counter after I put the apples on it. I think these would also be good without the ice cream. They would just be like an apple turnover. I did have leftover syrup in in bowl from the apples, so I drizzled the remaining syrup over the ice cream.

Apple Pie Puffs

1 sheet puff pastry from 17.3 ounce box
3 large apples (I used granny smith), diced
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon apple pie spice
1 teaspoon cornstarch (next time I am going to up it to 2 tsp cornstarch and water)
1 teaspoon cold water
For the top:
2 tablespoon melted butter
sugar for sprinkling

Saute apples with butter, sugars, cinnamon and apple pie spice until soft, about 4 minutes. Mix cornstarch and water together and add to mixture. Cook 1 more minute. Set aside to cool (make sure you give this plenty of time to cool).
Using thawed puff pastry dough, roll out onto a floured work surface and roll dough into about a 12X18 inch rectangle. Cut into 6 equal rectangles. Scoop apple filling onto the middle of the rectangle. Fold dough over and press down on all 4 sides to seal. Repeat with all rectangles. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush tops with the melted butter and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes. Top with ice cream and eat while hot. (You need to pretty much serve these when th
ey come out of the oven if you want them warm. They cool down pretty fast.)
