Apple Puff Pastry Dessert

This simple to make apple dessert will be a winner, especially on a chilly evening. The pastry is warm, the apple pie filling is warm and a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped topping adds contrast. The deep apple cinnamon flavor of the apple butter on the plate make this meal a real heart warmer.
