petite apple croustades

Wow– I am just going to brag and say that my Petite Apple Croustades came out so beautifully! I was totally not expecting that. Working with phyllo dough (the “crust” for these) always makes me a bit crazed because I refuse to cover it or handle it gently. I go fast and messy…so I usually expect the results to look messy, too. Instead of raggedy wads, I opened the oven to find perfectly bronzed and frilly apple-phyllo bundles looking out at me. Why, hello there!

Each croustade is made from six strips of buttered and sugared phyllo arranged in a muffin tin. I can see the assembly work being a bit tedious, but I only made two of them, so it wasn’t a big deal. And the mess I made was fairly small, haha. Add in a filling of caramelized cooked apples (I soaked raisins in Grand Marnier and put them in, too), twist up the overlapping phyllo strips around it and you’re good to bake. I had a little filling left over that, along with some caramel ice cream, I spooned on the side. A perfect fall dessert.

  1. This IS the perfect fall dessert (but yes, so fussy!). Yours are gorgeous!

  2. The bake and the plating is beautiful! Love the little side of apples and the ice cream. Makes me want to make these again.

  3. Yum ice cream, we did that too. We loved these even though they were tedious.

  4. Perfectly bronzed and utterly gorgeous I would say. Fast and messy sounds like a great technique based on your results. I will try to copy that next time I try my hand at these. Love the look of yours.

  5. Perfection!
