a simple breakfast with friends

November 30, 2010 § 3 Comments

we had a friend stay over this past holiday weekend so i felt inspired to make something simple yet decadent.  and what could be better than puff pastry and apples?  this dessert breakfast was so simple due to one of my most favorite luxuries of the modern world, frozen puff pastry. these couldn’t be simpler or more beautiful to look at.

apple puff pastry
this recipe doesn’t really call for exact measurements. feel free to get creative, you could throw some cinnamon or almonds into the mix.
1 box puff pastry
2 apples
1 tbsp raw sugar
1 tbsp butter (optional)
preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  prepare puff pastry dough according to the instructions on the back of the box.  use a 2″ round cookie cutter to cut all of your rounds, place the rounds on a baking sheet.  peel, core, quarter and thinly slice the apples.  place about a quarter of an apple on each round.  evenly sprinkle the sugar over the rounds and if you desire (i love butter), place a tiny bit of butter on the apples. bake at 400 degrees F for 12-18 minutes.  enjoy!

    If the pastries featured taste as good as they look I just might book a flight eastward. There is a coffee shop in Honolulu — The Sure Shot in Makiki that has the most ono scones and croissant. Perhaps when you are in town next time I can take you for a taste test! Best of luck on the Pattissiere.

    It worked! I made them!! And you were right, if you cut the pastry into squares there is no waste. Thanks for the great idea. Keep’em coming!
