Needless to say, I came home with a giant bag of apples and a gallon of fresh apple cider. To use this all up, I have planned out a few great apple recipes to share with you this week so stay tuned! :)
First up are these cute little puffed pastry triangles that are stuffed with apples, walnuts, and goat cheese. These sweet and savory little bites are a perfect fall snack or appetizer. I found this recipe at the Rainy Day Gal website. I changed them up a bit by substituting goat cheese for blue cheese and adding a few teaspoons of honey to the mix to sweeten up my apples.
Apple and Goat Cheese Triangles
original recipe from www.rainydaygirl.com
adapted recipe by Sabrina W. for eat.drink.and be merry.
makes 20 to 25 triangles
1 medium apple, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup goat cheese
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon minced rosemary
1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
2 teaspoons honey
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons water
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a medium sized bowl, combine apples, walnuts, cheese, rosemary, and honey. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Roll out your pastry until it reaches a 14in x14in square. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, slice 5 even horizontal slices and then 5 vertical slices to create 25 squares.
Spoon a teaspoonful of apple mixture into the center of each square and fold pastry dough over to form triangles. Seal edges with a fork. Make an egg wash by beating together the egg and water and brush over each triangle.
Butter 2 baking sheets and transfer the triangles over to the pans. Bake for 15 minutes or until light golden brown.
