I do fold it different than original recipe states, but that’s not important; the more rustic and different the more charming. I think they’re beautiful. Also, sometimes I make one large one, sometimes individual, depends on what I happened to have at the time. Obviously I don’t always lay out apple slices so neatly either 😉
pssssst….you know no1 can beat Jacques Pépin; so I’ve tossed in his recipe link ⤵
Just Sayin’ 😉

I used Honey Crisp, because they’re our favorite.
Made brown sugar because > confession: I forgot I bought more; I could totally leave that part out 😜
I LOVE molasses flavor.
You should see my shirt 😜
I didn’t have parchment paper. Make it work 😉
Obviously I think they’re beautiful. And tastes DELICIOUS!
Or laid out like Jacques Pépin – with a little apricot preserves♡ yumm!
