After a Long Day at School, Treat Them!
Chances are that if you have younger kids, they either just started or are about to start back in school and are STARVING the moment they get back home. We’re all for creative inspiration in the kitchen, and we’re loving this play on traditional apples and peanut butter from Jenny Flake of Picky Palate. It’s a sweet (and certainly yummy) way to reward them after a hard day of readin’ and ‘rithmetic. So why not surprise your kids with something unexpected when they walk in the door? Who knows, it might even fuel them to finish their homework faster!
Here is your simple line up of ingredients….
Lay out your puff pastry onto a nice baking sheet.
Peanut butter and honey time!
Spread peanut butter mixture over each square of pastry.
Slice your beautiful apples…
…..and layer them over the peanut butter.
Drizzle warm honey over your apples….
sprinkle with sugar and it’s time to bake!
Ahhhh, gorgeous…..and delish too!
