Thinly sliced apples are sauteed with butter, sugar, and cinnamon until they are tender and full of flavor for a delicious filling. Puff pastry is the base for this simple dessert, adding a nice bit of buttery crunch. A spinkle of coconut perfectly complements the apples and the pastry, adding a bit of tropical flair. A simple braided design makes this dessert the pefect dish for entertaining. Serve it slightly warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
