These pretty apple pieletts are sure to appeal to every one in the family. They are tidy and neat to pick up and eat on the run, and full of goodness that you can feel good about feeding to your family. As well, since the pastry is purchased, they can be made up fast, and served warm, ensuring that finicky eaters will want them as much as anybody.
These pieletts are made with fresh apples. Apples, like potatoes, are a fruit that we sometimes forget about, passing them over for some other sexier fruit. But apples are one of the best fruits you could eat. The phytonutrients in apples help to regulate blood sugar, so when you are eating something that has sugar in it, having an apple along with it might not be a bad idea. As well, research has shown that people who eat an apple shortly before a meal consume fewer calories at the meal. So apples may help to keep weight in check. They are also a good source of dietary fiber, and loaded with vitamins such as vitamin C. It is important to eat the whole apple in order to enjoy all of its benefits, so forego the juice and bite into the entire delicious fruit.
This dish is quick and easy to make, and even beginners can have success with it. And phyllo pastry is fun to work with, and has so many different applications. Here, melt butter and spread each sheet with a bit to ensure a crisp and delicate crust for the apple filling. Choose any apple you like, or a combination for a real treat. Granny Smith apples will produce a more tart filling, which you might prefer whereas Honeycrisp or Pink Lady apples (both fabulous eaten fresh) make a slightly less tart pie. Try your hand at this snack tonight.
