Easy Apple Pastries

Makes 8 large or 12 medium

Kitchen equipment

• 2 baking sheets lined with parchment paper
• Pizza cutter
• Apple corer
• Paring knife and cutting board
• Measuring cup & spoons
• Large mixing bowl
• (Small sieve, if you’re sprinkling with icing sugar)

Ingredients

• 2 whole sheets puff pastry (buy frozen and thaw according to package instructions)
• 4 medium, firm apples
• 1 cup brown sugar
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• Optional spices to taste: cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.
• Optional toppings: whipped cream, caramel sauce, icing sugar

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 415° F.

2. Core the apples and slice thinly, but don’t peel. Put them in a large bowl and add sugar and salt (and any optional spices). Stir to combine. Allow to sit for a few minutes.

3. Using a pizza cutter (or sharp knife), cut each puff pastry sheet into quarters (or sixths), making a total of 8 (or 12) rectangles. Place them on 2 baking sheets lined with parchment paper.

4. Arrange apple slices on the pastry rectangles in a row, overlapping as you go.

5. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until pastry is puffed and golden brown.

6. Remove from pan immediately and cool on wire rack if not serving right away – though these are best served warm. Serve plain, with caramel sauce, whipped cream, or a sprinkling of icing sugar pushed through a sieve.
