I shot this as part of a puff pastry and phyllo dough story. This is such a delicious, easy apple dumpling that you can bake while you are having dinner and have it fresh and hot for dessert. Or, if you are feeling particularly decadent, have it for breakfast with some hot coffee or tea - it would be a wonderful weekend treat.
- Don’t freeze your dough for too long: pay attention to expiration dates
- Plan ahead: phyllo dough needs to defrost in the refrigerator for 8 hours to overnight depending on manufacturer’s instructions
- Work quickly once dough has defrosted: phyllo dough will begin to dry out instantly: have your ingredients ready to assemble and keep a damp cloth over phyllo dough while working
- Brushing pastry with butter or egg wash before putting it in the oven will help to brown the top and lend a sheen to the pastry. Sprinkling with a course (sanding) sugar will add some shine and sweetness to a sweet dish
