Home Baked Goodness!

Happy Saturday all!

How true the ole saying, 'Necessity is the mother of invention' can be. Today I'm going to share with you a yummy recipe I've tried with both peaches and apples in the last month using what I had on hand.
Preheat your oven to 350*.
Take a sheet of frozen pastry dough out of the freezer for 40 minutes or so before you begin.
As soon as your're able, lay it flat.

Peal & core 3 apples (Honey Crisp pictured) or peaches (I used white peaches).

Chop your apples/peaches & place slices in a Large bowl.

Add cinnamon to your liking.

Add dark brown or light brown sugar to your liking.

I used 3 packets of Sweet & Low but you could use 2 tablespoons regular sugar. No Salt!!!

Add pre-chopped walnuts to your liking.

Mix well until all pieces are thoroughly coated; if using apples, you may need to add a 1/4 cup  of water to help get things coated.

Spray an 8x8 baking dish with non-stick spray then line the bottom with the pastry sheet.

Spoon your apple/peach mixture onto the pastry, adding as much or as little of the juices as you like.
(If using peaches, there will be a lot of juices, and more come out when baking).

Fold your corners over, using a bit of water on your fingers to stick the pastry together where it overlaps.

Do the same for the remaining two corners.

Keep the holes open at the corner sides & cut 2 more holes in the top.
Bake in the oven at 350* 30-40 minutes. (Depending on how well done you like the pastry/crust).
For a flakier top, brush lightly with melted butter before putting in the oven.

Once it has finished baking, let it cool for 30-40 minutes before serving.
Delicious warm from the oven with whipped cream!
And there you have it!

Simple, quick, easy and above all, delicious!  Leftovers were just as yummy, cold or warmed in the microwave.  Perfect for Autumn and the colder months.
