Directions:
Directions:
Use your favorite pastry dough or the one listed. Roll out to a quarter-inch thickness. Cut into squares big enough to cover an apple. Take some tart red apples (I like Ida Red's) peel, core and place each apple in the center of a pastry square. Fold pastry over apple. In the center of each apple put a spoonful of cinnamon sugar and dot with butter. Bake in a hot oven, 375 to a golden brown. Just prior to taking them out, drizzle with real maple syrup. This is one of those deserts you can get ready and freeze ahead. Just prepare them leaving butter out until you remove them from freezer. Then dot with butter and bake as above.

Personal Notes:
Mother, Ida McMillan, always tried to keep these on hand. She would prepare a bunch and freeze them unbaked. It only takes a second to take them out and stick them in the oven. She used the no fail pie crust and they were always flaky and delicious. A warm memory for us all.
