Main Ingredients

4 large apples, peeled and cored

1/2 c. finely chopped pecans

1/2 c. dark brown sugar

2 tsp. cinnamon

2 tbsp butter

4 cinnamon sticks

2 - 1/4 c flour

1/2 tsp. salt

2/3 c butter

6 tbsp water


1Begin by preparing the apples. Peel them and core them. Set them aside.

2Mix together the chopped pecans, brown sugar and cinnamon. Set aside with the apples.

3Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a 9 x 13 pan by lining it with foil and spraying with cooking spray.

4Make the pastry by cutting the 2/3 c. butter into the flour and salt. Add the water and mix until you have a soft dough.

5On a floured board, flour your rolling pin and roll out dough into a large rectangle.

6Cut an 8" round circle out of the dough. Set an apple in the middle. Begin filling the apple core area with the pecan filling. When partially full, stick in the cinnamon stick to look like a stem. Finish filling around it. Sprinkle the mixture all around the outside of the apple as well.

7Melt the 2 Tbsp. of butter and drizzle over the top of the apples.

8Make slits, beginning about an inch from the apple all around the pastry circle. Then, pull the pastry up around the apple, making sure the apple is all covered and pinching together a the top.

9Continue this process with each apple. You will have to re-roll the dough in between.

10From the dough scraps, cut out a leaf shape and add to the top of the apple by the cinnamon stick stem. Use a dab of melted butter to make it stick. Place the apples in the prepared pan.

11Sprinkle the tops of the apples and leaves with granulated sugar.

12Bake for 45 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream!

Additional Notes

I was actually able to cover 4 large and 1 small apple with the pastry. This recipe was adapted from Christmas Gifts of Good Taste by Leisure Arts.
