Flaky pastry surrounds sweetened apples and walnuts topped with a buttery caramel glaze.
Did you eat pop-tarts for breakfast growing up? I did, quite a bit really, but only ever the chocolate fudge. But since it’s fall the fudge version will have to wait, today I’ll share with you an apple pie version of your favorite childhood breakfast.
Since I don’t usually buy that sort of stuff anymore, I surveyed the kiddos to see if they remembered eating a pop tart. Initially they said no. Then they start to weave a tale about how I likely fed them pop tarts and donuts every day when they were little. And how they probably even remember those good old days. Before I became the crazy organic lady 🙂
I at least attempt to make breakfast a little more nutritionally sound these days. I made them with a whole wheat crust and threw in a few healthy walnuts. Can I declare these babies breakfast? Why yes, I think so.
But never fear, if these don’t look like breakfast to you, I certainly don’t think anyone would object to a new version of your Thanksgiving apple pie. My problem with a traditional apple pie?
Crust to filling ratio. Being completely honest, I’m only in it for the crust.
These little babies have tons of flaky crust surrounding the apple filling. If that wasn’t enough, they are then drizzled with a buttery rich caramel sauce. Heaven on a plate. A little vanilla ice cream wouldn’t be out of place.
But that might be a stretch for breakfast 😉
