apple puffThis week’s recipe is both rich and simple — and also delicious. The classic pairing of cheese and tart apples is set off by a crisp puff pastry crust. With the ingredients on hand, it’ll take you only minutes to put together this treat that’s perfect for dessert, snacks with coffee or even a special breakfast. (The recipe also contains some useful hints on working with puff pastry.) It’s from the Yelton Manor Bed & Breakfast in South Haven, Michigan, a three-story Victorian mansion overlooking Lake Michigan and “dedicated to your privacy and pleasure”.


Apple and Brie Puffs

Yields 8


  1. 1 box of frozen puff pastry
  2. A wheel of brie
  3. 3 tart apples
  4. 1 egg
  5. 1T of butter
  6. Brown sugar
  7. Cinnamon
  8. Flour
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Work quickly with thawed pastry or it gets sticky and difficult. A box has two sheets, let them thaw for about 30 minutes, then roll them on a floured board with a floured rolling pin until about 10 inches square.
  3. Cut each square into four squares and lay on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.
  4. Layer a slice of brie and 3 slices of Granny Smith or other tart apple in the middle of each square.Overfilling is the enemy, don’t overdo it.
  5. Top each with a sprinkle of brown sugar, a pinch of cinnamon and a pinch of butter (1T cut into 8 pieces.). Brush the border of each square with a wash of whisked egg.
  6. Fold two opposite corners together and press to hold. Brush the entire top of pastry with egg wash.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes until toasty brown and puffy. Serve warm.
