Halloween is right around the corner. We know how much fun it can be to get into character, goof around with the family, dress up, and make tasty treats. This is even truer when the kids are celebrating the holiday with their class. Moms and Dads, get ready to jump start the school festivities.
Who remembers how much fun class parties were? Combining the unique visions of peers into a celebration filled with themed party favors, treats, and decor. School Halloween celebrations are the highlight of the Fall season because they create such joyous (albeit sometimes terrifying) memories.
Be prepared for a delicious scare.
Apple Strudel Mummies
2 Large Baking Apples, Peeled and Sliced Thin
3 Tbs of Brown Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
½ tsp Ground Cardamom
1 tsp Nutmeg
2 pkgs of crescent roll dough
Vanilla icing for decorating
- Preheat oven to 350F. Peel and slice baking apples lengthwise as thin as possible
- In a medium bowl combine apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg and toss to coat the apples completely. Set aside.
- Roll out each individual crescent roll dough triangle to about 1/8 thick. With the narrowest part of the dough triangle facing you and the widest part facing away, place a layer of apple slices in a column in the center of the dough leaving about 1 ½ inches of dough on either side of the apples. Using a paring knife, slice 7-8 strips in the dough on either side of the apples, perpendicular to the apples.
- Starting at the top, crisscross the dough strips over the apples, leaving a small gap at the top of the “mummy” for eyes.
Place the “mummies” on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake at 350F for 11-13 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
- Remove pastries from the oven and remove from baking sheet to a cooling rack or plate for icing. When pastries are cool, place icing in a pastry bag and lightly drizzle icing in a zigzag pattern over the pastries from top to bottom.
- Add candy eyes or red hots in the gap in the pastry to create the look of a “spooky mummy”! Can be eaten cold or warm by reheating for 30 secs in the microwave.
Makes 12 – 14 mummies
