Petite Apple Croustades

Baking Chez Moi

These petite packages were a fun way to usher in a new season. This is an apple filled dessert with phyllo dough. I used a mix of apples; Gala, Fuji and Golden Delicious. I flavored mine with brandy as that is the alcohol I had on hand. Despite Dorie’s modifications from the original, this is another laborious recipe that four hands are better than two. My husband helped me, he painted the phyllo dough with the butter, I sugared it and layered it in the pans. There are 6 strips per croustade. Even with the two of us it took us 45 minutes to do 6 croustades. Before these went into the oven, my son declared “looks like toilet paper”. Ah teenagers, can’t live with them … I baked mine for 25 minutes and we thought they came out just perfect. These make a striking dessert but a bit messy to eat. We served them with vanilla ice cream which everyone enjoyed. Since I had extras I was able to make a total of 8. Two were eaten the next day which I crisped in the oven but were not as good as the originals. Definitely make and eat the same day. My first apple dessert of autumn. To see what others made head over to Tuesdays with Dorie.

    Glad to see I wasn’t the only one that had extras and ended up with more than 6 croustades!

    They look good. Not what I expected though. And another laborious recipe – yikes.
