DIRECTIONS

  • Thaw pastry sheets for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • Beat together the cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar, vanilla and egg yolk until well mixed.
  • Set aside.
  • Working with one sheet at a time, unfold thawed pastry on a lightly floured surface, creating 3 sections.
  • Do not separate sections.
  • Roll lightly to flatten.
  • Using the tip of a sharp knife, make 10 parallel cuts in each of the two outer sections, cutting just to the fold line in the pastry.
  • Spread 1/2 of the cream cheese mixture down the center section of the pastry.
  • Arrange a layer of apple slices over the cream cheese.
  • Sprinkle 1/2 of the nuts over the apple slices, and dust lightly with cinnamon.
  • Starting at one end, fold pastry strips over the filling at an angle, alternating sides to create a"braided" appearance.
  • Brush top with reserved egg white, and sprinkle with granulated sugar.
  • Repeat above steps with remaining ingredients.
  • Using 2 long spatulas, transfer pastries to a large, ungreased baking sheet.
  • Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Slice to serve.
