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 Lulu At Home. Thanks Lulu!
- 4 apples, peeled, cored and sliced (I used Honey Crisp but Granny Smith or Gala would be nice too)
- 2 Tbs. butter
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 Tbs apple cider
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 2 pieces of thawed puff pastry (I've had lots of luck with Pepperidge Farm puff pastry which can be found in the frozen section with desserts.)
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1 Tbs. raw sugar
- 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.
