Holiday Recipe #1: Baked Apple Awesomeness!

If you're like me, you're probably scrambling around right now, running last-minute errands. For folks like us, we often cut corners to save time, especially with baking. I am gluten free, so cutting corners isn't as easy as it used to be, but I still love a good treat during the holidays. Don't get me wrong, I'm the first to say, 'carpe diem!', and I want my son to enjoy those yummy holiday goodies too, yet still respect his body and all the hard work he's been doing for his sport.

So, here’s the first of three of my favorite holiday recipes. They're all super easy to make, and gluten free, but trust me -- as long as you don’t tell your family it’s gluten free, they’ll never know! (...and I won’t tell!)

Baked Apple Rosettes

1 sheet frozen gluten free puff pastry

1 large egg

2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice

2 teaspoons water

2 tablespoons of butter or Earth Balance Organic butter spread

2-3 Apples (I like Macintosh, but whatever you like)

Ground Cinnamon

Confectioners sugar or Cinnamon sugar (dusting, optional)

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a muffin tin with 1 tablespoon of the butter or spread and dust with cinnamon sugar.

Prep the Apples. In a large microwave-safe bowl, mix the lemon juice with the water. Cut the apples in half and core out the seeds. Slice very thin. Leaving out the top and bottom slices. Mix apple slices in lemon water and microwave for 3 minutes. Drain in colander. Allow to cool a bit before handling.

Pastry. Unfold your pastry sheet out on any GF flour dusted surface.

Assembly. Melt remaining tablespoon of butter in microwave. Cut dough into strips of 8 inches long by 1.5 inches wide. Brush or spread a bit of melted butter on the pastry. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over it on the dough. Lay down apple slices beginning at the left, then overlapping next slice over half of the previous slice.

Repeat, giving a little space at the end. Fold dough over the apples. Sprinkle more cinnamon sugar on the dough and apples before rolling up. Roll up loosely. Remember, this is organic, not perfection. Place in greased and cinnamon sugared muffin tin.

Bake for about 40-45 minutes, until golden brown. Cool on a rack. Remove from tin, dust a little confectioners sugar or cinnamon sugar on the top for a spot of extra sweetness, and enjoy!
