This viral apple pie puff recipe lets you make the most of a favorite fall fruit
Whoever’s in charge of these things really nailed it when they made October National Apple Month. It’s hard to think of another fruit that symbolizes the fall season like apples do — think candied apples, apple cider and apples for teachers on the first day of school.
And then there’s apple pie, one of the season’s most anticipated treats. If you’ve got a hankering for a sweet bite of apple pie, but don’t want to go to the trouble of baking the whole thing, check out these adorable apple pie puffs by Yumna Jawad, a food blogger who runs the site The Feel Good Foodie.
One apple makes a half dozen of these little treasures, so use a couple if you’re serving a crowd!
First off, core the apple of your choosing — no judgment here on your favorite type of apple.
Then, slice the apple into quarter-inch slices, aiming for six to eight slices per apple. The slices should look like rings.
Next, roll out a sheet of puff pastry on a cutting board. Use a pizza cutter to slice the pastry into strips; Jawad recommends a 2-to-1 ratio of strips to apple rings.
Carefully wrap each apple ring with a strip of pastry, then repeat with a second strip to create a lattice-like design around both sides of the apple. Brush both sides of the wrapped ring with an egg wash, then arrange on a prepared baking sheet.
Once all your apple rings are wrapped and egg-washed, pop them in the oven to bake. They’ll emerge with a golden, crispy pastry crust, just like a miniature apple pie. See the whole process on Jawad’s Instagram:

Immediately dip the rings in a cinnamon-sugar mixture, then plate ‘em up. For the complete apple pie experience, serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
