While it is overwhelming to me that I can't slow things down a bit, I am very excited for Thanksgiving and then Winter Break. I have not been home with my family since the summer and I miss them. I can't wait to take a break with them because time does seem to slow down a bit during breaks. Instead of middle school, classes, DTS, homework, (some sleep in there), and seeing friends, I can just focus on hanging out with my family and relaxing a little.
Puff Pastry Apple Pie
3 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp flour
1 tbsp cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
3 squirts of lemon juice
1. Preheat oven to 375 and line a glass baking dish with parchment paper.
2. Peel and core the apples and then slice into 1/4-1/2 inch thick slices. Place in a bowl with the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Toss to combine.
3. Roll out your puff pastry on a lightly floured surface so that you have a long rectangle, about 2 feet long and 5 inches wide. Place the apple mixture along the middle of the puff pastry and then fold up the sides of the pastry to cover the apples Pinch the pastry together so that you have a log of apples. Take both ends of the log and bring together to form the wreath. Pinch the ends together. Place the wreath in the prepared pan.
5. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until pastry is lightly browned.
