TWD/BCM: Apple Weekend Cake AND Pailles

The Apple Weekend Cake was a simple little snacking cake. 

Easy. Moist. 

Note to self: next time add nuts, skip the jelly glaze.

Pardon this interruption in our regularly-scheduled program. But the "weekend" in "weekend cake" reminded me of our adventure a couple of weekends ago. We made the trip to Plains, Georgia to hear Jimmy Carter teach Sunday school. It was amazing. The man exudes kindness. People were there from many many states and even some foreign countries. Truly a pilgrimage. I'm so thankful.

Pailles means "straws" in French. These fabulous little cookies are intended to look like a stack of straws. Whatever.

Dorie says that if you like to play with your food, you'll love making these. She's right.

Nothing stressful at all. This is puff pastry from the store!

Roll, brush with egg wash, sprinkle with sugar, fold, repeat. 

After some chilling time in the freezer, slice into 1/4" slices and press three or four together on a baking sheet. 

Bake covered with parchment paper and a cooling rack. These expand out instead of up. 

They're thin and crunchy. It's hard to go wrong with puff pastry.

I personally prefer to eat them open-faced
spread with something tasty.
Lemon curd is a good choice.

The other Tuesdays With Dorie bakers are here.

And now a shoe.
