RECIPE: Apple Pinwheels in Syrup, Oh My

cookingrvcJanuary 2, 2004

Cindy had posted a recipe for Apple Pinwheels in Syrup a while back. I made a couple of changes, using what I had on hand. They were very good, although the pan may NEVER come clean. DH had it with vanilla ice cream, sis ate them naked.

I used puff pastry instead of pie crust, and only had enough apples for one sheet of pastry. I should have reduced the syrup by half, since these fit into a 8x8 Pyrex and I needed only half the syrup.

Here is the recipe with the changes. It is a rib-sticking dessert, perfect for these cold months.


Apple Pinwheels in Syrup

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

-------- ------------ --------------------------------

1 Sheet Puff pastry

3 Cups Grated apple

2 teaspoons Cinnamon

1/2 Cup Sugar

1/2 Cup Packed light brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon Salt

2 Tablespoons Butter

1/2 teaspoon Vanilla

1/2 Cup Heavy Cream

1/2 Cup Warm water

Preheat oven to 400°

Roll pastry into 14x12 rectangle

Combine apples and cinnamon, spread over pastry even;y, then roll up from the short side.

Place (swirl side up) in a 8 x 8 pan.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Combine remaining ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a full boil.

Pour over apple pinsheels and retrun to oven for 20 minutes, basting twice.

Apple Pinwheels made with puff pastry? How decadent is that?! Nice "tweak", Sue!

Sue, next time add a bit of heavy cream to the as well. Makes the sauce even more decadent than it all ready is. I have some puff pastry in the freezer that might just be destined for this. Thanks for the suggestion.

Sounds like a good idea! I'll try it that way the next time.

Ann T,

I did use cream in the syrup! Do you mean add it after it finishes cooking?

Sue, Cindy's original recipe didn't call for cream, but when I made it I substituted a cup of whipping cream. I just noticed that you adjusted the recipe as well.
