RECIPE: Apple Pinwheels in Syrup, Oh My

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

1 Sheet Puff pastry
3 Cups Grated apple
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
1/2 Cup Sugar

1/2 Cup Heavy Cream
1/2 Cup Warm water

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.

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!

Lori :-)

Sue, next time add a bit of heavy cream to the syrup 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?


RE: RECIPE: Apple Pinwheels in Syrup, Oh My

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.
