Get ready to experience a delicious twist on the classic potato creation – this time with apples and a mouthwatering brown sugar cinnamon butter blend. Trust me, it’s AMAZING!
Trying to put the taste into words is a challenge because it’s unlike anything I’ve ever had. The apple layers become incredibly soft, yet each layer maintains its unique texture when you take a bite. Picture a mille crepe cake, but with a creamier consistency, and the tartness of the apple truly stands out!
For an extra burst of flavor, top it off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzle some caramel sauce.
Thousand Layer Apple
- 1 large honeycrisp apple
- 3-4 tbsp melted butter
- 1 tbsp dark brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Puff pastry
- Peel and core the honeycrisp apple, then slice it into thin 1/16” slices using a knife or mandoline (check out the one we used on our Amazon page).
- Mix melted butter, sugar, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Coat each apple slice with this mixture and stack them in a ramekin until you reach the top. Press down on the layers a few times while stacking and pour out any excess liquid.
- Once your ramekin is filled, pop it into a 400˚F oven for 10 minutes. After that, carefully remove excess liquid and crown your stack with a piece of puff pastry brushed with egg wash. Back into the oven for another 20 minutes.
- For the best results, let it cool completely before serving. Gently release your creation from the ramekin with a butter knife, flip it upside down, and serve it with a generous scoop of ice cream. Enjoy!
