Braided Apple Pie
How pretty, right? I goofed on the left end. I should have folded those in before the rest of the strips got there to make it a cleaner looking end. Eh, oh well, not that anyone here is going to care:)
I used a white bread recipe (http://bit.ly/ZFGJAY
) and a can of apple pie filling, which I hate to use since it’s so easy to make, but hey, I had a can and figured I better use it.
I cut a couple strips in too far and can see the apples inside. I’d hoped that it didn’t create too much of a mess on my pan. Luckily, it didn’t!
This is such an easy recipe as is, but you could always buy a frozen loaf of bread dough, thaw it, and then roll it out. Once it’s a good-sized rectangle. Pour the apple pie mix in the center of the dough, leaving at least 3 inches of dough on all sides. Cut the strips to within a half-inch of the apples, the just alternate sides, pulling up one strip at a time, up and over the apples.
Pretty cool, right?
