Cinnamon Bark

Well known for its use as a spice, Cinnamon Bark also has many health promoting benefits.
Cinnamon is considered one of the longest-existing spices in history. It was so highly prized among ancient nations that it was regarded as a gift fit for monarchs and even for the gods. 
Cinnamon has a long history of culinary uses, the sweet-and-spicy flavor of cinnamon in many baked goods has been, and continues to be, enjoyed by most people. I love cooking with it and adding it to tea. 
 As an essential oil, Cinnamon Bark has the ability to support healthy metabolic function, promote healthy circulatory function,* and has immune-supporting properties.* It can also aid in naturally repelling insects.

What you need

2 apples
3 drops Lemon essential oil
½ cup cream cheese, softened
½ cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 drops Cinnamon Bark essential oil
2 sheets puff pastry

What to do

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F
  2. Core and thinly slice apples.
  3. Combine apple slices, Lemon essential oil and water in a bowl to keep apples from browning. Pat apple slices dry and set aside.
  4. Roll out puff pastry. Cut four even strips.
  5. In a bowl, cream together cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, and Cinnamon Bark oil.
  6. Spread cream cheese mixture on top half (long way) of puff pastry slices.
  7. Arrange and layer apple slices on cream cheese mixture, cut side facing down.
  8. Fold bottom half of plain puff pastry on top of cream cheese mixture and apple slices. Starting at one end, roll them up. Place in greased muffin

Tips: I have made this twice and after the first time, which was just amazing, and my kids loved it. I doubled the cream cheese recipe the second time and put it on the whole puff pastry slices and then after they were cooked, I used the left over cream cheese mix on the top of the tarts as frosting. Can I just say the frosting is so yummy! I can't wait to make them again. 

Make Sure you get the puffed pastry out of the freezer 40-60 minutes before preparing. 

You can make the cream cheese mix ahead of time. 

If you don't have time because there is a lot of prep to do, you can make ahead either with the rolls or lay one pastry puff sheet down flat in a glass cooking dish, then apply cream cheese mix and add and layer all the apples. Add cream cheese mix to the second pastry puff and add on top of apples. You can be creative with this one and it will all taste the same. 

I also thought about adding pumpkin cream cheese for Halloween. Yum a combination of pumpkin and apples. 

I did try with wild blue berries and that was very yummy as well. You can make these with any fruit or combination you like. 

Cinnamon is the Oil of Sexual Harmony, by supporting the reporductive system and helps heal sexual issues. It assists individuals in accepting their body and embracing their physical attractiveness. Cinnamon dispels fear of rejection and nurtures healthy sexuality. It rekindles sexual energies when there has been repression, trauma or abuse. It can also bring clarity to souls who struffle with their sexual idenity. It encourages the soul to let go of control and allow others to be fee. 

Enjoy, everyone will like these.
