Apple Not-turned-overs

The other day, while shopping for stuff for my Daring Cooks challenge, I decided to pick up some puff pastry and apples.
I was craving something sweet, but nothing really struck my fancy...then I got the brilliant idea of making apple turnovers.

But I was too lazy for all of that. You know, making a filling, folding over the pastry. JEEZ, so much work. XP

So instead, I made these.

Rectangles of puff pastry (or any shape you want, if you want to make them cute... :P) with slices of apple and cinnamon sugar on top.


Apple Not-turned-overs:
1 sheet of cold but thawed puff pastry
1 or 2 decent sized apples
1/3 of a cup of a cinnamon sugar mixture
A few tablespoons of butter (optional)

Mix powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla together until the desired consistency is reached. :)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit

Anyhoo, cut the sheet of pastry into 9 equal rectangles (or as many equal sized shapes as you can get out of a sheet)

Peel and slice the apple (1/4 of an inch thick slices) and lay them, layered, over the pastry, leaving at least 1/4 of an inch around the edges of the pastry.
Sprinkle some of the cinnamon sugar over the apples, and then a small bit of butter on top of that.
Bake the pastry for about 20 minutes, or until the corners/edges are slightly browned.

Once out of the oven, drizzle the icing over the hot pastry.

It tastes like those Pilsbury toaster strudels, only way better, and you can definitely substitute any fruit!
