There's something about the cooling weather and crisp air of a fresh new fall season that invigorates my time in the kitchen. Apples are usually my source on inspiration...apple pie, apple crisp, apple cider, apple cinnamon muffins. All things apple!
When the urge to bake hit me strong this week. I grabbed a box of Puffs Pastry Sheets from Pepperidge Farm, a bag of apples, my favorite spice (cinnamon) and preheated my oven.
These pastry sheets were new to me...and they were perfectly simple to use and bake with. They added a light, airy and wonderfully flaking texture to my mini apple pies. I almost whipped up some delicious icing to dip my mini pies in, and just might the next time I make them!
