I don’t know what this is … Apple Cheesecake Maybe?

Okay.  So.  I’m cleaning out my freezers.  This means that sometimes I come up with odd things to eat.  Today’s experiment resulted from the discovery of half a package of puff pastry and a plastic container filled with leftover cupcake frosting.  And so it begins.

Now, I’m not putting up this recipe specifically because I think it’s something you should make yourself.  It all depends on what you have hanging around your house.  This is more to show you that you can use your imagination when it comes to throwing a few ingredients together.

Anyway, here’s what I did.  Preheat your oven to 375°F and haul out a large pie plate.

I had a small plastic tub full of what looked to be about 2-3 cups cream cheese frosting leftover from various adventures.  Basically it amounts to cream cheese, butter, icing sugar, and vanilla, and it’s fantastic.  It freezes really well, too.

So I dumped that in a bowl and added 3 eggs to it, for cohesion.

Then I finely chopped up 4 apples (three Red Delicious, one Granny Smith, for tartness).  Chuck those into the frosting mix.

I also managed to cleanly slice off most of my thumbnail, but don’t worry, it didn’t make it into the dish.

Gave it a stir.  The apples and the frosting, not my thumb. Obviously.

Took my half package puff pastry and set it out on a floured surface.

Rolled it out thin enough to fit in my pie plate with some overlap.

Filled it most of the way with my apple filling.

Gathered the corners together.

It kind of sort of looks like I did it on purpose, no?

I had extra filling so that went into a casserole dish.

Then I baked them for an hour, until the mess in the casserole dish was cooked through in the centre.

And the puff pastry was crackly and brown.

We ate this warm with a bit of ice cream, like it was a pie, but you could eat it like a pudding, too.

  1. Yumalicious. I find sometimes that my best recipes come from tossing stuff together that I find I need to get out of the fridge or have been hanging around in the pantry too long. Only problem is I usually don’t measure or write anything down, so I can’t guarantee results if I ever try to make it again! My husband thinks he is assured variety in this way.

    1. Haha, mine feels the same way! Fortunately now that I have the blog I feel weird cooking without my camera, so that helps me to remember if something is worth remembering …

      1. Definitely. And then I don’t have to try to remember what “that thing you made with the red peppers and the spicy stuff” was, because he can just go and look it up on the internet! 🙂
