Today I wanted to make something Puffed.What else than Puff Pastry ! Apple Puff Dumpling...there really isn't anything like it, and believe me when I say, after the 1st one you'll be reaching for the second one in no time.
~Deliciousness in every bite~
Apple Puff Dumplings
1 sheet puff pastry, you can make your own as well, when buying frozen, let sheet defrost at room temperature, it will take about 40 minutes or so
1 large apple, peeled, cored and cut into big chunks
2tbl brown sugar
1egg (to make egg wash, simply break the egg with the fork and whisk it until egg yolk and egg white are well combined)
mix sugar with cinnamon, set aside.
unfold puff pastry sheet and cut into squares using a knife or a pastry wheel.
sprinkle about 1/4 tsp cinnamon sugar mixture on each square
place one apple piece on each square
sprinkle 1/4tsp cinnamon mixture on the top of each apple
bring opposite corners of squares to the middle, so they meet in the middle, press the dough slightly so corners will adhere forming little pocket.
Brush with egg wash.
Bake at 400F, for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
Let cool a little. Serve plain or sprinkle some powdered sugar on the top.
