Christmas is looming and people are we are all going to start eating more and having dinner parties to celebrate and what is better than these small sweet treats to keep everyone in the mood to celebrate. I find these are brilliant for dinner parties as if you are to make a whole apple pie then you are always left with loads for yourself, these are perfect and last a while after for yourself!
1 Green apple
45g Golden caster sugar
1 tbsp Flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 roll Puff pastry
Okay so I know the roll of puff pastry is a massive cheat on my behalf as this can be made from home BUT to make this more simple I have bought a roll so that this cane quicker and easier to make (although it is really simple already).
Firstly you need to take the apple and cut this in slices making sure the centre is removed. I would recommend these being cut quite thin so that they fit into the pastry nicely.
In a bowl big enough to fit the apple in, mix the cinnamon, flour and sugar together. Once this is mixed place the apple into this and stir together making sure the apple is completely covered.
Once this is mixed roll out the pastry and cut it into triangles. I have done this by cutting it in half longways, then into six squares then cutting the squares in half. Then take a slice of apple and put the outside of the apple facing towards the long centre line of the pastry. Once each section of pastry has an apple slice on it sprinkle the remaining sugar mix over it all.
Then to make these into the sweet treats they are, fold the outer corners in to go over the apple slice, then fold the final corner over to make this into an envelope like slice. Once this is done place into the oven at 170 degrees for 23 minutes, although if you oven is quite fast I would keep an eye out for them to make sure they don’t go brown too quickly. You will know these are done when they top of the pastry goes a golden brown colour.
Once these are cooked, remove from the oven and then I sprinkled some icing sugar on top of these and once they had cooled a little they were ready to eat. You could also serve these with ice cream or cream.
