What do you do with the leftover apples from that super delicious easy apple crostata with puff pastry you made for your family party? You make an equally easy apple pull-apart bread with vanilla glaze.

Of course, you can make this apple pull-apart bread using non-leftover apple slices, but if I can get two desserts out of one apple peeling-slicing-coring session, it’s a really, really good day. Plus it’s not really “easy” if you’re not using leftover apples. But don’t worry, if you don’t have leftover apple slices, I included ingredients and directions to make them. (They’re the same as the apple slices used in that delicious apple crostata.)

This easy apple pull-apart bread with vanilla glaze tastes best if eaten while still warm (not that eating something hot from the oven is ever a problem for me). Yes, it can be stored on the counter, tightly covered, for a day or two, but take my advice and eat it the same night you bake it.

If you’re going to be doing a lot of apple peeling and slicing because you’re making, say, a Dutch apple pie for Christmas Eve dinner and this apple bread for Christmas Day breakfast, you’ll want to invest in a good apple peeler. I own this one and love it. Plus, an apple peeler makes it easier for the kids to help with the baking.

And by help with the baking, I mean create the biggest mess possible in the shortest amount of time.
