Happy Thanksgiving! Hope everyone had a great weekend enjoying some quality time with their loved ones. We had a great weekend but boy was it busy! We celebrated with a feast on Sunday at my in-laws house, after a really crazy day. That plate full of turkey, stuffing, potatoes and gravy was a great reward at the end all our running around.
The day started with Q’s first day of hockey, meaning a 6 am wake up time! It was great though watching his progress on the ice after only an hour. Hard to believe he’s into hockey already and that I’m a hockey mom!
The afternoon was spent celebrating a dear 2 year old’s birthday. His mamma pulled out all the stops in making his day special with a Seuss-themed party.
Although our day was crazy, I still wanted to take something for Thanksgiving dinner that evening. Only having about a half an hour in the morning, I searched for something quick. I found this great recipe for an Apple Tart by The Pioneer Woman.
It took only minutes to prepare and was cooked in under twenty minutes! I did make a few changes, decreasing the sugar and adding some cinnamon, and it was a great success! I will definitely making this again.
Adapted from The Pioneer Woman
1 sheet puff pastry
juice from half a lemon
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Slice apples thinly and place in a bowl. Add lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon and salt to the apples and stir until combined.
Cut one sheet of puff pastry into two rectangles. Arrange apple slices in a row in the middle of the rectangle, overlapping the slices. Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.
Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve warm.
