Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a bowl, toss together apple slices, the 1 tablespoon flour and the cinnamon.

  • Spoon apple mixture into eight 6- to 8-ounce ramekins or custard cups. In a bowl, stir together the water and syrup. Drizzle evenly over apple mixture in ramekins. Cover with foil. Set ramekins in a 15x10-inch baking pan. Bake 25 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in center of the flour mixture. In another bowl, combine pumpkin and buttermilk. Add to flour mixture. Using a fork, stir just until moistened. Knead mixture gently to shape into a ball. Cover and chill while apple mixture is baking.

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Using a 3-inch star-shaped cookie cutter, cut out 8 stars, rerolling scraps as needed. Uncover ramekins. Arrange cutouts on partially baked apple mixture. Brush lightly with water and sprinkle with turbinado sugar.

  • Bake, uncovered, about 15 minutes more or until stars are lightly browned and apples are tender and bubbly. Serve warm.
