Ingredients

  • 2 frozen puff pastry sheets 1 box, thawed
  • 3 pink lady apples or your favorite varietal, peeled, cored, and sliced into ¼" thickness
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (½ a lemon)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened to room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup marshmallow fluff
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 jar hot fudge sauce
  • 1 jar caramel sauce
  • flaked sea salt optional
  • ice cream optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Prepare the apple slices by tossing them in a bowl with the fresh lemon juice. Set aside.
  • Gently roll the puff pastry sheets so the fold lines no longer are visible.
  • Use a knife or pizza wheel to cut each sheet into 4 equal size squares.
  • Transfer the squares onto parchment lined baking sheets. Set aside.
  • In a medium size bowl, blend together the cream cheese, vanilla, cinnamon, and marshmallow fluff until smooth and creamy.
  • Dollop approximately 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture into the center or each square and spread the filling evenly making sure to leave a ½ border around each side.
  • Place the apple slices in a single layer over the cream cheese mixture on each pastry square.
  • Sprinkle the tops of the apples evenly with the granulated sugar.
  • Bake the pastry in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, making sure to rotate the baking sheets half way through the baking.
  • Remove the baked, puffed pastry from the oven and cool completely.
  • Once the apple pastry has cooled, microwave the chocolate and caramel sauces (according to the directions on the jars), and drizzle the sauces over the cooled apple slices using a fork.
  • Sprinkle the top of each pastry with a light amount of flaked sea salt (if desired).
  • Serve plain, or with a scoop of your favorite ice cream.
