Apple Treats

I hope you like apples because if you don’t you might as well just go to the next blog you follow. I love apples and was so excited when I saw that apples were at the locally grown market. I picked them up and couldn’t stop thinking about what I could do with them all. They gave me so many! I knew I wouldn’t be able to eat them all and need to make something with them.


I’m not a big apple pie fan. In fact I’m not really a pie fan at all unless it’s chocolate. Kyle was talking about these strudels that he used to eat in Germany. He told me it had apples, raisins, and cinnamon and butter in them. I thought I could do something like that and make it a little healthier.


So… I attempted it.

It was a spur of the moment thing so I went and picked up some pastry sheets already made up.

I pulled out the ingredients. I used plain greek yogurt, raisin's, pure cane sugar, apples and cinnamon.


I cut up about 4 apples and mixed in two heaping table spoons of yogurt, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of sugar.


Mix up an egg to use to seal the pastries then fill em up.


Place your pastries on a greased cookie sheet. Brush with egg and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.


Bake and enjoy!


They were so warm and yummy right out of the oven.
