A lot of kindergarten-age kids study apples at school. As a parent, Tamra Davis volunteered to do a cooking lesson at her son’s school, assembly line style. She performed the prep work with her younger son, practicing basic math by counting the apple slices. Using filo dough, the kids can brush and wrap the filo dough over the prepared apple mixture. This is a fun craft activity for school or home that introduces cooking techniques and is yummy to eat!
4 Granny Smith Apples, chopped
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup apple juice
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
-Prepared filo dough
Place filling ingredients in a stove pan and cover. Cook over medium heat for ten minutes. Add a tablespoon of flour as a thickening agent.
Bring defrosted filo dough to school along with brushes and melted butter. Brush dough with melted butter, place an ice cream scoop of apple filling in half-folded sheet of filo dough. Fold up sheet like a flag or roll to encase the filling in dough. Brush butter on top and sprinkle with sugar. Cook in 350 degree oven for 10 minutes or until golden. Allow to cool before eating as the filling can be very hot!
