Apple Puffs with Fresh Cream and Warm Caramel Sauce

Standard

apple puff3smallTGIF! Are you guys ready for the long weekend? We left a day early and are vacationing with some family and friends on the Oregon Coast. I love hearing the sound of the waves as I fall asleep. It’s so calming!

So, with relaxation on the brain, I decided to post a no brainer fail proof dessert recipe that looks fancy but couldn’t be simpler!

All you do for these is cook some apples in some butter, brown sugar and cinnamon until they’re soft. Then wrap them in little puff pastry bundles and bake. Top with whipped cream and warm caramel sauce. That’s it!

Hope you all stay safe and have a great fun-filled weekend!

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon butter
1 large granny smith apple
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 defrosted sheet of puff pastry
flour {for rolling}
1 egg
1 tablespoon milk
2 teaspoons granulated sugar

3/4 cup whipping cream
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup caramel sauce, warmed

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Place medium skillet over medium low heat. Melt butter. Peel, core and thinly slice apple. Place into warm butter with sugar, cinnamon and salt. Cook until apple slices have softened, about 7 minutes.

Sprinkle clean work surface with flour. Roll out puff pastry to a 10 x 10 inch square and to seal the edges from where it was folded. Cut into 4 even squares. Place equal amounts of cooked apples into the center of each puff pastry square. Whisk egg and milk in small bowl and brush onto the edges of puff pastry to help seal. Bring the opposite corners up and seal together at the top. Press the edges together to seal completely. I pressed the dough against my finger with a fork to help seal it well. Brush the tops with more egg wash and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of sugar each.

Bake 13-15 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.

While apple puffs are baking, whip cream together on high speed with sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Warm caramel sauce in microwave.

Remove apple puffs from the oven and cool 5 minutes.

Place large dollop of cream over each warm apple puff and drizzle caramel sauce over top. Serve.
