Lazy Apple Pie

Leftover pastry dough is one of my greatest joys.  I never get tired of dressing it up with whatever berries and fruits my kitchen supplies.

I like the idea of a non-soggy, easy apple pie.  As a result I made Lazy Apple Pie.

You can follow these steps for tartlets or take the easier route and do the below steps.

Lazy Apple Pie
-pastry dough
-1 apple
-2-4 T. honey (depending on the tartness of your apple)
-cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice
-melted butter

1. Preheat the oven to 375 (F). Cut your thinly rolled pastry dough into any shapes you like and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.

2.  Cut the apple into centimeter cubes and in a small bowl, drizzle honey over them.  Add 1/4 tsp. of cinnamon and a few pinches of the other spices and stir.  Let sit for about 5 minutes.

3.  Using a pastry brush, paint butter over pastry pieces and them paint some of the apple syrup over as well.  Stick in the oven until golden brown (10-20 minutes depending on the size of your pieces)

4.  Put the apple mixture in a small saucepan over low heat and cook until apples are tender.

5. Use the apple mixture like a chip dip with pastry as the chips!


TMNT is Still Popular?

I recently made a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle topped cake for a 7 year old's birthday. I couldn't believe that TMNT was still running.  I had a great time with this cake.
