Apple Cinnamon Braid

Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links.

We love August because it means we are that much closer to Fall! This Apple Cinnamon Braid is amazing and will bring that crisp Fall smell into your home. And I know you all want that! 😉

What You Need to Make an Apple Cinnamon Braid:

  • 1 package frozen puff pastry (I use Pepperidge Farm Trifold)
  • 2 apples
  • ¼ cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp butter

How to Make an Apple Cinnamon Braid:

  1. Thaw puff pastry for at least 30 minutes, or until dough is soft and pliable.
  2. Peel and dice apples, then combine them in a bowl with brown sugar, cinnamon, white sugar, and lime juice. Mix thoroughly until evenly coated.
  3. Roll out or unfold your puff pastry. With a sharp knife, make a series of cuts one finger width apart, all the way up each side panel in a diagonal direction.
  4. Spread your apples out on the middle panel, so that they cover it completely. Leave 1 inch clear on each end, and tuck them over to cover the ends.
  5. Grab your bottom-most dough “string, and fold over all the way so that it covers your apples to the other side. Repeat this, alternating sides each time, so you have a criss cross pattern going up.
  6. When you are finished, move your braid to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush on melted butter so that it covers the entire pastry.
  7. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
  8. Serve as-is or drizzle with icing.

How to Make The Icing:

  • 2 tbsp milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  1. To make, whisk vigorously until smooth. If too runny, add more powdered sugar.
