RECIPE BACKSTORY
Honey Crisp apples stuffed with creamy brie, toasted almonds, turkey, a drizzle of honey, wrapped in a rosemary pie dough and baked until golden. There's nothing I like more than apples with brie. So I attempted to stuff an apple with brie AND almonds, turkey and a drizzle of honey. And to seal the deal, I wrapped it in buttery rosemary pie dough to complete a little bundle of everything I love.
