Apple Pastries


Happy Groundhog Day!


It also happens to be another day off from school due to sub-zero temperatures. We’re looking at a high of -1! I’m beginning to get cabin fever. So it was a good thing our delivery from Green Buffalo Food came on Monday since I haven’t ventured to the store. Thanks to them, I was able to throw together a wonderful stir-fry for dinner last night using the green pepper, shallots, and zucchini they provided. And this morning, I used a couple of apples they sent, too. The Sixth Grader and I are enjoying pastries and watching Groundhog Day, of course.

Ingredients

For 8 pastries:

10 sheets of phyllo dough

2 apples, peeled and diced

1/4 C walnuts, chopped

1 tsp sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp nutmeg

4 Tbs Earth Balance margarine, melted

4-oz Tofutti cream cheese

1/2 tsp lemon juice

Directions

Preheat oven to 375. Combine apples, walnuts, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a small bowl. Whip the cream cheese and lemon juice in a food processor; transfer to a small bowl.

Take 5 sheets of the phyllo and cut into fourths. (You will do the same to the other 5 sheets)

To make the pastries, brush the top layer with the melted Earth Balance, a large spoonful of cream cheese, then some apple mixture.

Roll into a log and transfer to a baking sheet lined with lightly greased foil; brush with margarine.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the pastries are golden brown. Enjoy!
