If Apples and Maple Gave Birth to the Perfect Kentucky Dessert, This Would Be It
October means apple season here in Kentucky and Patty Millay, from Owensboro, KY, is cooking up a delicious recipe that combines two signature Fall flavors- apples (of course) and maple.
Here's how you make an Apple Maple Crinkle. You'll see from the photo below that it looks delicious. When I was chatting with Patty as it was baking in her oven, she confirmed that it smells as good as it looks. She sent me this message- If you could smell this! O M G!!
I am always searching for something new to bring to a potluck or family get together. This dish was so good and I had all but two ingredients in the house! The crinkle idea put my heart to rest on appearance as this isn't supposed to look perfect and I LOVE that! The maple and cinnamon make the perfect complement to the tart of the apples. I just loved this and I hope you do too!
APPLE MAPLE CRINKLE
1/2 (1 lb) box phyllo dough, thawed (one tube)
1 cup melted butter
1 cup milk
1/2 cup granulated sugar (I did 1/4 cup white and 1/4 cup brown)
½ cup maple syrup
2 teaspoons maple extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Granny Smith apple (peeled and very thinly sliced and pat them dry on paper towels)
1 cup powdered sugar
¼ cup maple syrup
5) Drizzle melted butter over the top. Return to oven and bake for 10 more minutes.
6) As the buttered dough bakes, whisk together the milk eggs, sugar, maple syrup, maple extract, vanilla, and cinnamon in a medium sized bowl.
