Friday Foodday

Happy Friday lovebugs,
Here are my favorite recipes this week.

Cider Bourbon Cocktail
c/o Martha Stewart
  • 3/4 cup apple cider
  • 1/3 cup bourbon
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 (2 1/2-inch-long) thin slices fresh peeled ginger
  • 2 thin slices lady apple, for garnish
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add cider, bourbon, lemon juice, and ginger; shake to combine. Strain cocktail into 2 coupes. Garnish with apple slices.

Apple Pie Pull Apart Bread with Vanilla Glaze
c/o The Comfort of Cooking
Nonstick cooking spray
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 (16 oz.) tube Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Biscuits
1 medium apple, cored and thinly sliced
For Vanilla Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons milk, any kind
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
For Apple Pie Pull Apart Bread:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Mix sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a shallow dish and set aside.
Remove biscuits from tube and slice each in half, creating 16 rounds. Coat each round and each apple slice with the cinnamon-sugar mixture and layer in the loaf pan, alternating biscuit rounds with apple slices. Begin and end with the biscuit rounds.
Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until bread is fully baked throughout.
For Vanilla Glaze:
Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl and drizzle over warm bread.

Cheesy Apple Pie in Apples
- 6 apples (2 granny smith, 2 fuji, 2 red delicious)
- brie
- gorgonzola
- white cheddar
- honey
- sugar
- brown sugar
- cinnamon
- 1 can crescent roll dough
- 1/2 egg white
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. The prep for each of these is more or less the same. Cut off the top of the apple. Scoop out the inside with an ice cream scoop. Get rid of the seeds and pieces of core and cut up the scooped out apple pieces.
Now, cut up a bit of cheese (about 1/4 cup for two apples) and place in a bowl with the apple pieces. Add a squeeze of honey and 1 teaspoon of sugar. Stir up and fill your apples!
For pie crust, we used our old pal from Pretzel Pops, Pillsbury crescent roll dough.
Roll it out and cut into 4 pieces per apple. Arrange in a simple lattice and cut off any excess off the edge.
Brush with egg white and brown sugar to give it an extra glaze.
Place in a deep pan and fill with a 1/2 inch of water. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes.
Uncover and bake for an additional 20 minutes.
