And, I’m mad in love with these Envy apples. They’re so amazing sweet and delicious. I’ve never knew apples could have such flavor! Holy wow! They’re crisp and sweet, and just have the most amazing apple flavor I’ve ever tasted. Just blew me away!
Now, before I got these little globes of amazing in the mail, I had this idea. This idea that fresh fruit plus brie is amazing. And, yes, I was right. Simply put, these are fabulous. Imagine, if you will, the most apple of apple flavors that does not involve any kind of extract. Now, pair that with some slightly salty, creamy brie. Yeah, I know. Over the top already, but bear with me on this one. Now, wrap all that amazing flavor in crispy phyllo dough and flavor EXPLOSION!
In your mouth amazing flavor!
But, here’s the best part. These babies take like NO TIME to make. Honestly! Thaw the phyllo. Core and slice some Envy apples. Peel (cause I HATE the rind) and chop some brie. Now, melt the butter and assemble. Brush with more butter and then bake. It took me all of about 15 minutes to assemble and then another 18 to 20 to bake. Voila! Impressive appetizer for any meal on the table in no time flat!
Now, is it just me or can you simply eat baked phyllo dough plain? No? Just me? K.
See how pretty these triangles are? I baked mine a little more golden than most people probably like it. I really do enjoy the rich flavor that the brown dough adds to these apple brie triangles. Yes, I also like my chips extra dark and my fries more brown than most. I just like that added flavor. So, if you don’t, then make sure to watch yours and take them out probably before the 18 minute mark. It’s truly up to you!
I love that flaky goodness. I think I’d wrap phyllo dough around everything if I could. It’s so good! See how it just captures that apple right there? And it’s surrounded by that rich brie cheese. To me, fruit and brie just go hand in hand. You this out a little later on in the week. Yup. I’m hinting..
Okay. Let’s be real here. I’d wrap phyllo around everything stuffed with brie. Okay. Cat’s outta of the bag! These are two of my fave splurge ingredients. I could think of endless possibilities with those two.
But, back to these triangles stuffed with amazing Envy apples. Not only are these apples the perfect size, they have such rich and amazing apple flavor that I honestly thought could only be achieved with extract or doing directly to a small apple farm.
No, not one of those “pick your own” places. While I’m sure they have great tasting apples, to me, they’re also mass produced. Is it possible to have craft farms? Like craft beers and craft sausages? Small batch stuffs? If so, that’s what these Envy apples taste like to me. Craft apples with the most amazing flavor you’re ever going to experience in an apple. So, some Envy love and make sure to follow them on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest. You’re going to be inspired by their delicious following, flavors, and recipes they share.

- 16 sheets phyllo dough
- 6 apple slices cut in half
- 2 ounces brie cheese, cut into 12 pieces
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Place one sheet of phyllo dough on your work surface and brush lightly with the butter. Place one sheet of phyllo on top and bright lightly with the butter. Repeat this step two more times for a total of four layered sheets of phyllo. Cover remaining phyllo with a damp paper towel.
- Using a sharp knife, cut the stacked phyllo dough into the three long strips.
- Place on one apple slice half on the left side of one of the strips of phyllo. Top with a piece of brie and fold the lower corner over the brie to form a triangle.
- Fold the triangle up, to the right up to the left, and repeat until there is just one small flap of phyllo remaining. Brush butter over the flap, fold both corners of the flap towards the triangle, and then fold the triangle over the flap. Press this seam lightly and place, seam side down, on a baking sheet lined with a silpat mat or parchment paper lightly sprayed with cooking spray.
- Repeat with remaining phyllo sheets, apple slices, and pieces of brie.
