Bake the Book: Easy Apple Strudel

The secret to this incredibly easy Apple Strudel comes from the freezer section in the form of phyllo dough. Brushing the dough with copious quantities of clarified butter and confectioners' sugar makes for a shatteringly flaky crust that's wrapped around a a sweet-tart apple-sour cream filling studded with currants, raisins, and walnuts. Baked in a 450°F oven for a brief 15 minutes, the pastry browns while the apples retain just the right amount of crisp and tart. More

A nice hit of freshly grated nutmeg is the prefect complement to the sharp cheddar, both inside and outside the crust. More

Ginger Caramel Apple Galette

As October exhausts itself, apples in all their glorious shades and colors pile high in outdoor market bins and are turned into warm cider and doughnuts. Some of my favorite costumes for apples are sugary coatings like scarlet candy shells, and particularly, sticky caramel blankets. With that in mind, melted caramels lurk in a mound of tart Granny Smith apples bubbling in butter, brown sugar, and vibrant lemon. More
