here. With a few tweaks away from that recipe, here's a quick, easy, delicious apple pastry snack, diet sized.
Preheat the oven to 425F.
Assemble the Ingredients:
One store bought refrigerated pie crust. (They come two to a box, and I saved the second pie crust for something else, recipe forthcoming.) Bring it to room temperature, just leave out on the counter for about 15-30 minutes.
One of your favorite apples, this time I used the Granny Smith; cleaned, peeled, and sliced. If you're using both pie crusts, peel and slice a second apple.
Two tablespoons of butter, melted and slightly cooled.
Cinnamon sugar or just cinnamon if you want less sugar, or a combo of table sugar mixed with cinnamon. I used Cinnamon Sugar alone.
Put something under the pie crust to keep it off the counter, I used waxed paper. Just open the pie crust, no need to stretch it out. Brush melted butter over crust, sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top of butter.
With your ravioli cutter or knife or pastry wheel, zip right through this crust, making eight strips. Look at the teeny one, so funny.
Put your apple on one end of the strip, roll it up. Repeat 7 times. Put all the apple snacks on a parchment lined cookie sheet or baking tray. Butter up the tops with remaining butter and sprinkle with cinnamon again. The parchment will stop you from needing a jackhammer to clean and remove the melted sugar, unless you want the exercise, use parchment paper please.
Bake in a preheated 425 F oven. Mine were done at 25 minutes, ovens vary, 22 minutes might be average time needed to bake nicely.
I will tweak this again by cutting 16 strips since the snack was a lot of crust to apple ratio. Still, it was easy and tasty. Let me know if you try it and how it worked for you.
