Cinnamon Apple Bites

Quick, easy, vegan and super tasty … need I say more?

Ingredients (makes 9 squares):

1 puff pastry sheet, thawed (the frozen Pepperidge Farm variety is vegan)

2 apples, peeled & thinly sliced

1 tbsp vegan butter, melted

1/4 cup sugar (I used organic, bone char free)

1 tbsp ground cinnamon

Parchment paper

Baking sheet

Icing/confectioner’s sugar to dust * optional

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375F.

In a small bowl, mix together the sugar and cinnamon – set aside.

Peel, core and cut the apples into thin slices (about 5mm thick) and set aside.

Roll out the thawed puff pastry sheet if it’s smaller than a 10×10 inch square (I had it on a sheet of foil to reduce mess), and coat all of it with a thin layer of the melted butter.

Cut the large square into 3×3 pieces (making a total of 9 equal sized squares).

Put 1 tsp of the cinnamon sugar in the middle of each small square (use the back of the spoon to spread out into a circle).

Layer the apple slices onto the cinnamon sugar (I used about 6 apple slices per square).

Coat each apple slice with any remaining butter and cinnamon sugar.

Transfer each square onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Place the cinnamon apple bites on a cooling rack and after about 10 minutes, sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar (if using) and enjoy!

For gluten-free make sure you use pure cane sugar, gluten-free safe cinnamon, and a gluten-free brand of frozen puff pastry.
