I often think of truffles as delicate chocolates that you can find at a little candy shop packaged in a small box with a bow. A box of truffles in a nice gift to give someone to say thank you or for that someone special.
Who can resist one of these soft confections. With the holidays quickly approaching these are an excellent addition to the Thanksgiving dessert buffet.
I have several truffle recipes including my Oreo Truffles and a truffle recipe coming up in my e-book Holiday Thyme available November 1st. I was thrilled when I was assigned Christine’s Kitchen Chronicles for this month’s Secret Recipe Club. I did a guest post last month on Christine’s site with my Cream Cheese Coffee Cake and I mentioned then I was looking forward to making these Apple Cinnamon Truffles.
These truffles are so easy. Each bite gives you hints of apple and cinnamon in a soft truffle. I modified the recipe slightly. The original recipe called for pureed apple pie filling. I used chunky applesauce and added cinnamon and nutmeg to give it a similar texture to the pureed pie filling. Whether you use pureed apple pie filling or applesauce the result will make for a soft and delicious truffle that you will make again and again.
My Holiday Thyme will be available on Amazon November 5st!
