These pastries may look difficult to make, but I promise that they are super easy to whip up and taste divine! Served with cream, these pies make a delicious sweet selection for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Enjoy!

Prep time: 40 minutes
Cook time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 x apples, halved, cored and thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 3 sheets of frozen puff pastry, partially thawed
  • 1/2 cup raspberry jam
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 20g butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar
  • Whipped cream to serve

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan-forced. Grease a 12-hole (1/3-cup-capacity) muffin pan.
  2. Place apple, sugar, juice and 1/3 cup water in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until apple is just tender. Using a slotted spoon, transfer apple to a bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool.
  3. Cut each sheet of pastry into 4 equal strips. Place 1 strip of pastry on a flat surface, with 1 long edge closest to you. Spread with 2 teaspoons jam. Sprinkle with a little of the cinnamon. Arrange a few apple slices, skin-edge up, overlapping slightly, with tops of apple overhanging at top edge of pastry. Fold bottom edge of pastry over the apple, leaving the tops exposed. Working from 1 short edge, roll up pastry to form a scroll. Place, apple-side up, into hole of prepared pan. Repeat with remaining pastry strips, jam, cinnamon and apple slices.
  4. Brush pies with butter. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until pastry is golden and puffed. Stand in pan for 5 minutes. Carefully transfer to a baking paper-lined wire rack. Stand for 10 minutes. Dust with icing sugar. Serve pies warm or cold with whipped cream.
