Pets-de-soeur means Nun's farts. It's made with pie dough. It's a very good dessert. I think that it cames from Quebec in Canada.
- 1⁄2 lb shortcrust pastry dough (store-bought, half a package of 1 lb)
- 1⁄4 cup butter, soften
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1 big cortland apples or 2 small apples, peeled, diced
- 1⁄2 cup maple syrup
- On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough in a big rectangle. Spread butter on all the dough and sprinkle with brown sugar. Distribute the diced apple on the brown sugar.
- Beginning with one of the long sides, roll the dough by holding tight to form a roll. Cut the roll right across (on the width) in slices of about 1 inch thickness. Put down the slices in a big glass dish (Pyrex type) and sprinkle with maple syrup.
- Cook in a preheated oven of 400 F for about 10 minutes.
This is very good; kina like apple pie but not as filling. I used store-bought pie crust and didn't roll it into a rectangle just prepared it round. I cooked mine for 18 minutes to get the dough cooked all the way; could have used a little longer just to brown it but I didn't want to overcook it. Made for Zaar Stars.
Nice breakfast treats and pretty quick to come together using pre-made pie crust!! I made this as written using one large granny smith apple. Mine also stuck to the pan and took 3 times the amount to bake in order to get the crust browned. I enjoyed the flavor, and must admit that I didn't have real maple syrup, but felt it could use a little more flavor, like maybe some cinnamon. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Gimme 5 Tag.
Taste is a 5+, presentation is not so good. These are just wonderful on the tongue, just sweet enough, although I did reduce the maple syrup. I did cook mine longer to get the crust nice and brown. I sprayed my pyrex with spray, but my little pinwheels still stuck to the dish. So when I tried to serve them, they wanted to fall apart. But have no fear, this didn't detract from the taste!! Because they were so delicious, and because I may have made them stick by cooking long enough to get the crust brown, I'll still rate them a 5 even though they fell apart....probably my fault!
