Did you know Bakepedia is on The Daily Meal? As a Special Contributor, Dédé specializes in holiday and seasonal desserts, and this month we shared with them a recipe for Pastry-Wrapped Baked Apples, shot by our photo intern, Peter Muka. This month’s recipe is a breeze to make with frozen puff pastry. Pepperidge Farm has a version that can be found in almost every supermarket, and if you have a Trader Joe’s nearby, check out their all-butter frozen puff pastry.
As a way to extend the Bakepedia message, we create an original recipe for The Daily Meal every month, so be sure to check them out! Some of our previous posts include:
- Grilled Peach Pizza – A rustic, open-faced dessert tart made like a pizza directly on the grill. The yeast dough is brushed with butter and the fresh peaches, mascarpone cheese and brown sugar, combined with a bit of smokiness from the grill to make an unforgettable dessert.
- Strawberry Shortcakes in Jars – The idea with this recipe was to re-create a favorite 4th of July dessert that would be portable and easy to bring to potlucks and parties, especially on this summer holiday when strawberries are at their best, but it makes for a great dessert on-the-go anytime.
- Chocolate Dipped Caramel Apples – Tart Granny Smith apples are enrobed in caramel, dipped in dark chocolate and embellished with crunchy additions such as Apple Jacks cereal, chopped Raisinets, and crumbled Butterfinger candy bars.
