1 frozen puff pastry sheet
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled and finely chopped to make 2 cups
1/2 lemon, juice and zest
8 Wisconsin Gouda cheese slices


  1. 1
    Preheat oven to 400°F. Thaw puff pastry sheet at room temperature for 30 minutes. In small bowl, mix sugar, flour and cinnamon. In another small bowl, mix apples, lemon juice and zest.
  2. 2
    Carefully unfold pastry onto lightly-floured surface. Roll into 15"x10" rectangle. Brush lightly with water.
  3. 3
    Combine the sugar-flour and apple mixtures. With short side of pastry facing you, spoon filling on pastry and spread to within 2" of short sides and to the edge of the long sides. Starting at the short side, roll like a jelly roll. Cut into 8 (approximately 1 1/2") slices. Place 2" apart on a buttered baking sheet.

    Bake 20 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and place one slice of gouda cheese on each pastry. Return to oven just until cheese melts, about 1 minute. Remove from baking sheet and cool on wire rack.
