Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and sliced
chopped dried mixed fruit
frozen puff pastry, thawed
Hi! I'm the submitter of this recipe and there are a few things I'd like to share about this dish: I normally can only get 8 strips out of a single sheet of puff pastry, which is perfect (just use 4 horizontally & 4 vertically), and you wouldn't have to cut the vertical ones in half, just trim a bit...sorry, AR published the '10 strips' thing. Also, leave the skin on the apples!! (Easier & tastier), being sure not to cut the apples to small; cut them into medium-sized chunks. I like to use dried apricots, cranberries, raspberries, & blueberries for the dried fruit part - but use what you've got. Walnuts can also be subbed for the pecans.
Very nice dessert. I really wanted to make this and didn't have apples, so I used 3 cans of peaches instead. The amount of time called for was perfect to brown the lattice and create a nice bubbly syrup. I did cut the sugar slightly since I had canned peaches (for apples I'd have left it the same) and used the syrup instead of water. I am so horrible at dividing dough: I'm not sure what I was thinking, but I cut 6 slices of the pastry instead of 8. When I realized my error, I cut small strips on four of the bigger strips (bc of course I didn't make them even) and put them together to make 2 strips. It still worked just great and I couldn't even tell after I baked it--that's how forgiving it is! It turned out lovely, and when I have apples I definitely would love to try again. Thank you for the recipe, CookinginFL!
I'd much prefer a cobbler. This recipe took way too long for a lumpy, beginner look. With some improvements it might have turned out better. The apples were kind of dry. Not impressed.
