Melania Trump Recipes — an unlikely search, because, I’m doubting that a woman of Melania Trump’s net worth does much cooking. If you were worth billions, would you? Sure, I might drop in with an occasional menu plan Monday, but that’s a task I’d be quite happy to delegate to those more talented than I.
Still, as someone interested in politics, I always enjoy searching out and trying recipes that our first ladies (and potential first ladies) apparently enjoy.
A bit of searching yielded the results that Melania Trump “fires up” this dessert. Does that mean she makes it? Well, maybe. You can only enjoy views of the Manhattan skyline for so long before boredom sets in.
Here, with a few tweaks, is a Melania Trump recipe you can make in your own kitchen:
Melania Trump Recipes: Apple Napoleons with Vanilla Ice Cream
- 4 small apples peeled, cored, cut into wedges
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 5 tablespoons sugar
- 1 sheet frozen puff pastry (I just made a pie crust recipe)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Vanilla ice cream
Place pastry on a lightly-floured work surface.
Combine cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl.
Sprinkle apples evenly with two tablespoons cinnamon mixture.
Cut pastry into eight 3-inch squares and place on greased baking sheet.
Chill in freezer for 15 minutes, until firm.
Bake 30 minutes at 400 degrees, until lightly brown.
Melt butter over medium-high heat until foam subsides. Add apples, cook about 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
Add remaining cinnamon mixture. Cook until apples are tender. Cool completely.
Top with vanilla ice cream, then apples, repeat with another layer of each. Serve immediately.
I made these this week, and I have to say that they were delicious. Basically a fancier version of apple pie.
