  • Stir together brown sugar, water, and flour in a large bowl until smooth. Add the apples, pecans, and dried fruit; toss in the brown sugar mixture until well coated. Pour into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Cut the puff pastry into ten 1-inch strips with a pizza cutter. Lay 5 of the strips over the apples lengthwise, and cut the remaining 5 strips in half. Place the 10 smaller strips over the apples widthwise to create the lattice. Stir together the white sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle over the lattice.

  • Bake in preheated oven until the apple mixture is bubbling, and the lattice is golden brown, 40 to 45 minutes.

Hi! I'm the submitter of this recipe and there are a few things I'd like to share about this dish: I normally can only get 8 strips out of a single sheet of puff pastry which is perfect (just use 4 horizontally & 4 vertically) and you wouldn't have to cut the vertical ones in half just trim a bit...sorry AR published the '10 strips' thing. Also leave the skin on the apples!! (Easier & tastier) being sure not to cut the apples to small; cut them into medium-sized chunks. I like to use dried apricots cranberries raspberries & blueberries for the dried fruit part - but use what you've got. Walnuts can also be subbed for the pecans. Read More

I'd much prefer a cobbler. This recipe took way too long for a lumpy beginner look. With some improvements it might have turned out better. The apples were kind of dry. Not impressed. Read More

Very nice dessert. I really wanted to make this and didn't have apples so I used 3 cans of peaches instead. The amount of time called for was perfect to brown the lattice and create a nice bubbly syrup. I did cut the sugar slightly since I had canned peaches (for apples I'd have left it the same) and used the syrup instead of water. I am so horrible at dividing dough: I'm not sure what I was thinking but I cut 6 slices of the pastry instead of 8. When I realized my error I cut small strips on four of the bigger strips (bc of course I didn't make them even) and put them together to make 2 strips. It still worked just great and I couldn't even tell after I baked it--that's how forgiving it is! It turned out lovely and when I have apples I definitely would love to try again. Thank you for the recipe CookinginFL! Read More

I made this for fish dinner at my church. I did not have any dried fruit to add so I substituted with fresh blueberries. It was a major hit. Thanks for the recipe Read More
