A few years back, during Black Friday week, I got a killer deal on a KitchenAid mixer. Anyone that has read this blog for any length of time knows that I do not cook or bake. It is better for all involved if I simply stay out of the kitchen. Which is partly why my husband Paul and I get along so well together. He’s passionate about herbs and spices, presentation and taste. And then there’s me; passionate about eating his creations.
Gordmans just recently started carrying KitchenAid appliances and attachments, and to celebrate they sent us a $100 gift card in order to purchase said appliances and/or attachments. We went with the spiralizer (and a measuring spoon set and a pair of KitchenAid tongs) all with just that $100.
We have since spiralized russet potatoes (amazing french fries) and sweet potatoes (more amazing french fries) and eggplant (deep fried and delicious, a recipe to come for those as well!) and we even spiralized a whole onion to use in spiralized breakfast potato casserole.
For only having our spiralizer for a week and a half, Paul is using it to death. We decided to make a dessert to share with you, and I could not be happier with the way it turned out.
Get in my belly!!!
Spiral Apple Bake
For this amazingly delicious and surprisingly simple dessert, you will need:
1 Red Apple
1 Green Apple
2 tubes of Crescent Roll Dough
Butter melted for basting
Preheat oven to 385°. Using your spiralizer, spiralize one red and one green apple. Interlace them as gently as possible. If the apple breaks, don’t worry, just position that side down.
Lay your crescent roll dough out and smush the edges together. Using a small glass (no larger than the apples themselves) cut out enough pastry pieces to insert in between each slice. Ours needed 32 pieces using two rolls of dough.
Baste one side of the pastry dough with melted butter, then sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Insert dough into spaces between each apple slice.
That deserves a close-up:
Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon on top and bake for 25 – 30 minutes.
Ovens and cooking times may slightly vary, I suggest start checking at 20 minutes for done-ness. When dough in center is cooked, remove from oven.
Drizzle caramel sauce on top, and serve with ice cream. You can’t tell me that doesn’t look delish. Yummo!
Thank you, Gordmans. Thanks to the variety of uses for our KitchenAid attachment, the mixer now has a permanent home on our kitchen counter, instead of the shelf in the pantry.
