Ingredients

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 0.5 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 0.125 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 large Granny Smith apple, peeled and diced (about 2 cups)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 Tbsp butter, cut into pieces
  • 0.5 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge FarmĀ® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed
  • confectioners' sugar

Directions

Heat the oven to 375°F.  Lightly grease a baking sheet.

Stir the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium bowl.  Add the apples, pecans and butter and toss to coat.

Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 15x10-inch rectangle. Brush the pastry sheet with water. With the long side facing you, spoon the apple mixture on the pastry to within 2 inches of the long sides and to the edge of the short sides. Starting at a long side, roll up like a jelly roll. Cut the pastry roll into 12 (1 1/4-inch) slices. Place the pastry slices, cut-side down, onto the baking sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Remove the pastries from the baking sheet and let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.  Sprinkle with the confectioners' sugar.

Flavor Variation: You can substitute walnuts for the pecans if you like.
