Instant Flaky Apple Croustade


Any flavor of pie filling can be used in this super quick and elegant recipe. Or offer several kinds to your guests.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: Serves 6


  • 1 package frozen puff pastry shells
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 (16-ounce) can apple pie filling
  • whipped topping from a can


Remove the pastry shells from the package and place on cookie sheet. Combine sugar and cinnamon on a plate and dip the shells in this mixture. Return to cookie sheet and bake the pastry shells as directed on package. Remove to a wire rack and carefully cut out the puffed center; save for another use or discard.
When the shells are almost done baking, place the pie filling in a medium saucepan. Heat over low heat, stirring frequently, until filling is hot.
Place a pastry shell on a serving plate and spoon some hot pie filling into the center space. Top with whipped topping and serve.
