Yeah! It’s that time again. Time for The Secret Recipe Club‘s big April reveal day. I just love this day. I love looking through all the blog posts and learning about each of the amazing bloggers that are participating in group C (that’s today’s group.)
Amanda, from Amanda’s Cookin’, started The Secret Recipe Club almost a year ago. It’s now grown so much there are 4 different groups (all posting on a Monday in the month) and each group has their own host to help out. The host for today is Angela from Big Bear’s Wife. Thanks Angela for helping us all out!
She also has amazing giveaways on her blog (and we all know I’m a lover of giveaways!)
I am a huge lover of tzatziki dip so I was debating for days if I should make Nanya’s amazing tzatziki dip (and eat the entire batch with french fries. Yes, french fries – don’t judge me!) But I am a sweet lover. Yep, I am. Is that news??? So her Nepalese Chai (tea) Cookies looked absolutely amazing and were starting to call my name. And then her Piece Montee started calling it even louder. Aaahhhhh! What to chose???!!!
As soon as I saw her post on Puff Pastry Mini Apple Bites I knew that was what we were going to make. They looked delicious and easy to make. ( I am needing a little easy in my life right now.) And my sonis on an apple pie kick. So this was perfect!
Puff Pastry Mini Apple Bites
* 1 sheet ready to roll puff pastry
* 2 granny smith apples
* 4 Tbsp. sugar
* 1 tsp. cinnamon
We used Honey Crisp apples because they are my absolute favorite apple EVER!
Peel and grate the apples. Add the sugar and cinnamon to the apples and mix well. I decided not to peel my apples because I love the skin. It made them pretty cool looking with the red int hem but next time, I will peel them.)
Place the puff pastry in a flat surface that is lightly dusted with flour. Pour the filling onto the pastry rectangle and smooth out to the edges.
Starting at the long edge of the pastry rectangle, begin rolling tightly until you reach the middle of the pastry.
Do the same thing to the other side of the pastry (making a heart shape.) I’m not sure why it was so juicy – maybe because of the apples I used.
Cut into 1 inch pieces and place on a lightly greased cooking sheet. Reshape so that it looks like hearts.
Bake in a pre-heated 375 degree oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and immediately transfer to a cooling rack.
Dust with powdered sugar (if desired) and enjoy! I drizzled ours with a powdered sugar and milk glaze. Oh man! My son said “delicious!!!”
Now let’s take a look at the other bloggers recipes!
