I have belonged to a cooking club for about 5 yrs now. It could be 4 years or maybe 6, I’m not really sure, but however long it has actually been it sure has been a lot of fun! I found the group when I responded to an ad on CookingLight.com. We don’t actualy do Cooking Light recipes but it was a great way to connect. It is an awesome group of women and it’s not just the food and wine that leaves me with a warm and fuzzy feeling after each meeting. This time we had a wonderful New Orlean’s style dinner with all recipes from Emeril.

We started out with a lovely Shrimp with Cocktail Sauce appetizer

These were so good I could have eaten them all myself!!!!

Next we had a dinner consisting of Herb Rice Pilaf, Nutty Green Beans, Hush Puppies, ( I thought that these were a little salty so I would reduce the salt a bit next time.) and Oven Baked Crabmeat Stuffed Sole with Meuniere Sauce (we substituted flounder for the sole). Nothing to complain about here!!!

An Impromptu Dessert

After I was done making the Salmon and Goat Cheese wrapped in Phyllo Dough I had 3 sheets of phyllo left over. It seemed a shame to waste them so I decided to make a little dessert. I first thought of just sprinkling them with cinnamon and sugar and rolling them up cigar like but then Ed mentioned apples. As it turns out we actually had an apple laying around so dessert was a go. We only used 3 sheets of phyllo because that’s all we had but it left the dough really thin so you might want to consider using a few more. This was really yummy and such a nice little treat.

Apples in Phyllo by Me

3 sheets (or more) phyllo dough
1 apple cored and peeled and sliced
2 tbsps melted butter

preheat oven to 400 degrees

lay a sheet of phyllo on a flat work surface, we used a plastic cutting board to protect the table, carefully brush the sheet with butter and then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Repeat this process til you have layed all your dough. Place your apples about a third of the way down the dough and sprinkle with more cinnamon and sugar. Roll the top 1/3 of the phyllo over the apples, fold in the sides of the dough and continue rolling up the apples keeping the sides in.

bake for 25 mins or until phyllo is a nice golden brown
