Apple Season

So many recipes rummage around in my taste buds during apple season, but for a little something special and unique, I am going to create an APPLE WELLINGTON!

Apple picking or Farmer’s Market excursion for apples in the fall are a time of the year that reminds me that fruit baring season is nearing an end before the cold of winter sets in.

While I will make Winter Fruit Pies throughout the winter, for this special occasion of apple picking, I wanted to make a unique dessert.

What Is A Wellington?

Pastry! It has often been associated with a Beef Wellington, which I will boast and tell you that mine is definitely the best, but imagine an apple wrapped in much the same way with sweet and spices surprises inside!

Perfect Beef Wellington

Using Our Homemade Crust, or any favorite pie crust, or store bought crust, even a puff pastry will work, the apples are peeled, cored (an apple coring tool makes this easy), and placed in a baking dish, covered and baked just enough to soften slightly, but not cook them.

Cinnamon and Apple Decadence

After the apples have cooled, simply fill them with my sweet, cinnamon filling, wrap the pastry around the apple, egg wash, and then bake them in the oven until golden!

When these apple wellingtons are place on a tray, they almost look like a real apple or an art piece depicting an apple. Whimsical and delicious!

servings

Buttery pastry wrapped around an entire apple, filled with nuts, brown sugar and cinnamon and wrapped in a pastry to look just like an apple.

Ingredients

  • Pie Pastry – enough to wrap 6 apples

  • Apples – 6

  • Butter – ½ cup melted

  • Walnuts – ¾ cup

  • Brown Sugar – 3 tbsp

  • Cinnamon – 1 heaping tbsp

  • Egg wash – 1 egg plus 1 tsp water, mixed

  • Walnut Oil – 1 tablespoon (optional)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Place peeled and cored apples in a baking dish, covered with foil, and bake for 15 minutes. Cool.
  • Puree the nuts, butter, sugar, cinnamon and a drizzle of walnut oil to a paste. Fill the cored apples.
  • Roll out the pastry to fit around 6 apples. Wrap and mold the pastry around the apples. The warmth of your hands will help to mold the pastry.
  • Cut out leaves from pastry scraps and place on the top along with a piece to look like a stem.
  • Egg wash the apples before baking to both smooth out the surface and give a golden finish.
  • Bake at 350 for about 40-45 minutes or until golden and you can smell the sweet aroma of the filling.
