Here I am having way too much fun with apples and Katie Quinn in this new episode for Fresh Up Your Life! I was so excited to finally meet Katie in person, and cook this recipe simple and delicious appetizer together. DO try this at home!
Savory Apple and Gorgonzola Pockets
- 3 apples, peeled and chopped into small cubes
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- Juice from 1 orange
- 3 tbsp chopped hazelnuts
- 3 rolls puff pastry
- 3,5 oz gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
Preheat oven to 450°F (220° C).
Combine apple pieces, sugar and orange juice in a pan. Cook for ten minutes over medium heat, then add chopped hazelnuts and remove from heat.
Roll out the puff pastry and cut into 6 squares (about 4-5 inches per side). Then spoon a bit of apple mixture and some crumbled cheese onto the center of each square, dividing evenly. Fold the 4 corners of each bundle towards the center, then brush them with beaten egg and press corners together to close.
