Today is the last day of the year, and I thought I was so sick of sweets that it would be easy to slip into better baking habits. Until I had this
brainstorm that involved the box of puff pastry lurking in my freezer. And the unopened jar of Biscoff in the pantry. Oh, and the lone apple languishing in my refrigerator.
It’s a good thing that my goal is to eat everything that’s tempting now so that I can start the new year on the right foot. I have exactly 6 hours to clean these babies up (with help from The Man) and I believe I will be able to do that. Yes, indeed.
Biscoff is a spread that tastes just like Biscoff cookies, primarily because it is made from Biscoff cookies! The closest flavor I can compare it to is cinnamony graham crackers. Yummy stuff – especially as a dip for apples.
In a very short amount of time you can make a flaky, not-too-sweet sweet roll that will knock your socks off! Here’s the recipe:
|Biscoff Apple Pastries|| |
- 1 cup Biscoff spread
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- 1 package (2 sheets) puff pastry, thawed
- 1 large apple, peeled and finely diced
- 4 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon flour
- Heat oven to 375 F.
- In a small bowl, combine the Biscoff spread and butter. Stir together well and set aside.
- Working with one sheet of puff pastry at a time, roll out gently on a floured surface until it measures 14”x10”.
- Using a rubber spatula, spread half of the Biscoff spread mixture over the pastry, bringing it to within ¼ inch of the edges.
- Sprinkle with half of the apple pieces.
- Combine the sugar, cinnamon, and flour.
- Sprinkle half of the cinnamon sugar mixture over the apples.
- Beginning with the short edge, roll tightly and slice in 1” pieces.
- Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet (I sprayed mine with Baker’s Joy)
- Repeat with the remaining pastry and bake for 35 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Do try this one. It’s simple, flaky, and full of melt-in-your-mouth delight. You won’t be sorry! I, however, will probably be regretting this tomorrow, when I wake up with a puff pastry hangover.
