Apple Ricotta Pastry Butterflies

Delicious, yet so easy to make. Anyone can do these classic apple pastries! Apples baked in flaky pastry with cinnamon and brown sugar with ricotta are irresistible. 

1/3 recipe of Pastry Puff Dough
5 large apples (I used Fuji)
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tbs butter
1 tsp cinnamon 
1/2 to 1 cup ricotta (optional)

1 egg for brushing the pastries 

Peel apples and grate em.
Melt butter add apples. Saute for few min.
Add brown sugar and cinnamon.
Saute few more min. Then let it cool down. Add ricotta.
Whisk the egg with a fork. Dust the table with flour. Roll the dough into large sheet. 
Cut into squares. I made really small bite size pastries for a baby shower. About 1 1/2 inch to 2 inches squares. Put apple filling in the middle and pinch 2 ends. 
Brush with eggs. 

Bake on 400F for 20 min.

  2. hi was wondering if i could use the pastry puff dough from walmart ? instead of making it. will it taste the same and turn out?

    1. Hi, Sveta :)
      Store bought pastry is fine to use. I prefer homemade it taste better :)))
