Golden Apple Bundles Recipe

Golden Apple Bundles Recipe

This recipe is an interesting way to use apples. I usually make them on Fridays, so when family and friends drop in on the weekend, I have a nice dessert to serve. They bake flaky and golden brown outside and moist inside. —Lila Eller, Everett, Washington

"I started with my mum's flaky buttery pie crust recipe. I had alittle bit leftover after making an apple pie. So I rolled it out into 2 small circles first I brush it with alittle melted butter then add about 2tablespoons of apricot jam and a marshmallow , seal the edges with a fork and brush with beaten egg whites, 2 small slits on top to breathe bake till golden brown. The grandkids loved them so much that I make it twice a week for their breakfast and snacks. The best part is you can use your families favorite jams, chocolates, caramel or other flavors. I also add whipped cream or ice cream. if you don't want sweets, you can use ham and cheese or turkey and cheese, how about hot pastromi. Mustard, horseradish or your favorite sandwich spread. There are so many combinations pick your favorites. The grandkids call these Gmama's poptart surprise!! They enjoy them so much cause I make them with love. And they will love you more for making these delicious pastries. ENJOY!!"

"I was short on time, and I had one Pillsbury pie refrigerated pie crust and some apples that needed to be used, so I modified this recipe by making one large bundle rather than several small bundles. I dumped all of the apple mixture in the center of the one round pie crust and folded the pie crust around the apple mixture, leaving about a three inch square of apples exposed on the top. I followed the instructions exactly, except I omitted raisins and extended the last five minutes in the oven to ten. Perfect!"
