Ingredients

  • 3 medium to large apples peeled and chopped
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup apple whiskey
  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
  • 2 sheets of pre-made or homemade puff pastry
  • approximately 2 Tablespoons of sugar for sprinkling

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, combine the apples, brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and lemon juice.
  • In a large saute pan over medium heat, cook the mixture for about 2 minutes.
  • Slowly pour in the apple whiskey, and cook for another 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Turn heat off and allow the mixture to cool for just a minute.
  • Meanwhile, take out the puff pastry sheets and roll out over an even surface, such as a large cutting board or rolpat mat.
  • Cut each puff pastry sheet evenly into rectangles.
  • On the bottom half of each rectangle, place about 1-2 Tablespoons of filling in the middle. Top each with 4-6 mini marshmallows. Set aside the remaining liquid from the filling; you'll use this toward the end.
  • Gently fold over the top of each rectangle and pinch together the edges. If you have extra pastry in some spots, simply fold them up a bit, then pinch to close.
  • Using a knife, cut 3-4 small slits at the top of each pastry.
  • Using a knife or fork, you can gently press into the edges of each pastry to create a striped design. This also helps keep the pastry from puffing up and out too much.
  • Taking the reserve liquid, brush a small amount over the tops of the pastries.
  • Sprinkle a little sugar over each pastry.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
