Posted on 26 October 2017

It's that time again to roll up your sleeves and make creative pastries for Halloween. Enjoy the flavors of cinnamon and apple together in this warm, delicious dessert!


  • 2 puff pastry sheets, defrosted
  • ⅓ cup (6 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 2½ tsp Amoretti® Natural Cinnamon Bun Artisan Flavor
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 Granny Smith apples; peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp mini chocolate chips (for eyes)
  • 1 egg (for egg wash)
  • 2 tbsp sugar (for dusting)

  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Combine the cream cheese, Amoretti Cinnamon Bun Artisan and the sugar in a mixer, until smooth.
  3. Roll out the puff pastry sheets.
  4. Make a template or cut free-hand coffin shapes from one sheet of puff pastry.
  5. Cut the other sheet into thin strips, for the "bandages" to go over the filling.
  6. Brush the edges of the “coffins” with egg wash.
  7. Spread a layer of the filling onto the “coffins”, staying inside the egg-washed edge.
  8. Fan out a layer of the apples over the filling.
  9. Place the tops and bottoms onto the “coffins” and drape “bandages” diagonally over the apples.
  10. Chill for 15 minutes.
  11. Brush with egg wash, dust with sugar and bake for 15 minutes, rotate the sheet pan and bake another 15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  12. Brush the “coffins” with simple syrup or diluted apricot jam and let them cool for 15-20 minutes before piping the glaze over the bandages and then applying chocolate chip “eyes” to the tops.
Make this Halloween creative pastries!
