October means apple season here in Kentucky and Patty Millay, from Owensboro, KY, is cooking up a delicious recipe that combines two signature Fall flavors- apples (of course) and maple.

Here's how you make an Apple Maple Crinkle. You'll see from the photo below that it looks delicious. When I was chatting with Patty as it was baking in her oven, she confirmed that it smells as good as it looks. She sent me this message- If you could smell this! O M G!!

From Patty:

I am always searching for something new to bring to a potluck or family get together.  This dish was so good and I had all but two ingredients in the house!  The crinkle idea put my heart to rest on appearance as this isn't supposed to look perfect and I LOVE that!  The maple and cinnamon make the perfect complement to the tart of the apples.  I just loved this and I hope you do too!

1/2 (1 lb) box phyllo dough, thawed (one tube)
1 cup melted butter
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup granulated sugar (I did 1/4 cup white and 1/4 cup brown)
½ cup maple syrup
2 teaspoons maple extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 Granny Smith apple (peeled and very thinly sliced and pat them dry on paper towels)


3 Tablespoons melted butter

1 cup powdered sugar
¼ cup maple syrup

1/3 cup powdered sugar (optional)
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
2) Pick up two sheets of phyllo dough at a time and crinkle them in accordion folds. Fit folded dough into the prepared baking dish and repeat the process until you’ve worked through one roll of dough. Fluff folds to ensure they’re evenly spaced.
3) Bake folded dough for 10 minutes.
4) Remove dough from oven and tuck in the apple slices throughout the folds.  It's super important for those apple slices to be as dry as possible.  They add a ton of moisture to the dish and you don't want it to be soggy.

5) Drizzle melted butter over the top. Return to oven and bake for 10 more minutes.

6) As the buttered dough bakes, whisk together the milk eggs, sugar, maple syrup, maple extract, vanilla, and cinnamon in a medium sized bowl.

7) Remove the baked dough from the oven and pour the maple mixture evenly over the top.
8) Bake for an additional 30-35 minutes until golden.
9) During the final bake time prepare the glaze by whisking together the melted butter, powdered sugar, and maple syrup.
10) Allow crinkle to cool then drizzle glaze over the top.  If you're super sweet - sprinkle with a little more powdered sugar too!
Of course, a dish like this pairs perfectly with ice cream!
