Warm caramelized apples & creamy brie cheese are wrapped up in a puff pastry for an easy & delicious apple strudel recipe, great for breakfast, an appetizer or dessert!
While last week was the official “Thanksgiving Week” on the blog, I just had too many delicious ideas this year to fit them all into one week! This week I will continue the Thanksgiving party with recipes for Sous Vide Turkey Breast, Everything Bagel Stuffing, Cranberry Pomegranate Waffles and this Apple Strudel with Brie!
While this apple strudel was made with the holidays in mind, it’s a seriously delicious and easy recipe to make year-round for a weekend brunch, a party appetizer or served as a dessert. The creamy melted brie, pairs perfectly with the sweet and buttery caramelized apples and the warm, flakey puff pastry crust.
I braided the puff pastry on top to create a beautiful presentation, but I promise, it’s super simple to do and I’ll show you how right below!
- 4 tbsp butter
- 2 apples (core removed and thinly sliced)
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 4 oz brie cheese
- 1 puff pastry sheet (thawed)
- 1 egg + 1 tsp water (whisked together to make an egg wash)
Preheat the oven to 425°F.
Place the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Once the butter has melted, add the apples and brown sugar. Cook for 10-12 minutes, or until the apples are caramelized.
Roll the puff pastry sheet out onto a large piece of parchment paper.
To make the braided top, slice a triangle from the bottom of each side of the dough, then slice ½ inch diagonal lines up each side of the pastry.
Place the brie cheese in the middle of the puff pastry, top with the caramelized apples.
Lay the rectangular end of the puff pastry over the filling, then begin on one side, and lay one strip of dough over the filling, then alternate laying a strip of dough from the other side, then alternate back and forth, back and forth, over the filling.
Once the entire puff pastry is wrapped up, transfer it on the parchment paper to a baking sheet. Brush the egg wash over the puff pastry.
Place into the oven to bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.
Slice and serve.
Easy as that, you have an elegant dish to serve at Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving, Christmas or anytime of the year!
