As you are all aware, I’m mainly a cake maker and decorator but I do like to try and bake something a little different. My husband loves apple pies or crumbles so I thought I would scour the internet to find a apple dessert of some sort.
I came across this lovely (and easy) recipe called ‘Puff Pastry Apple Pies’ by Chef Fifi on http://www.food.com
So I thought I’d give it a go.. whats to loose?
I was so surprised at how brilliant this recipe is, I thought I would share. I changed the amounts slightly but the outcome just as good.
1 packet of Puff Pastry (pre-rolled for us who want things quick and easy)
2 large bramley or baking apples (Peeled, cored and chopped coarsely)
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of plain flour
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1 beaten egg
If Puff pastry is frozen, Thaw according to directions on package.
Pre heat oven to 190 degree C
Line baking tray with grease proof paper
Combine the chopped apple with sugar, flour, lemon juice.
Lightly flour work surface and cut pastry into four rectangle.
Place 2 rectangles onto prepare baking tray and spoon apple mixture into the middle.
Egg wash the outer edge and place the other puff pastry on top.
Press down with fingers and then crimp edge with fork
Make a 1 inch L shape on top with a knife and fold flap back.
Egg wash all over and sprinkle with a little granulated sugar.
Bake for 15 -20 mins.
Allow to cool or slightly warm and serve with your favourite ice cream or cream. YUM!
