Ingredients

  • 2 Spartan apples (peeled, chopped, and diced)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 100 g store-bought puff pastry, thawed from frozen (if using puff pastry in blocks, thaw and roll out to a 12" square, approximately)
  • 1 egg

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a large baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.

  2. Add the diced apples to a medium bowl along with the cinnamon, cornstarch and brown sugar and stir well to combine.

  3. Cut the two sheets of puff pastry into 4 squares each using a large knife, pastry cutter, or pizza cutter.

  4. Cut tiny slits in 4 of the 8 squares you've created, offsetting the slits in rows of 3 and then 4 and then 3 and then 4, etc. This will create the pattern shown in the photos.

  5. Spoon the apple filling onto the remaining 4 pastry squares, dividing the filling evenly between them and keeping the mound of filling in the middle of the square. 

  6. Dampen the edges of each of the squares with a few drops of water, using your finger.

  7. Very gently stretch the other 4 squares (the ones you decorated with the slits) over top of the filling-covered squares, pressing down gently around the edges.

  8. Whip the egg in a small bowl using a fork and brush the egg over the top and sides of the pastries.

  9. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 22-25 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.

  10. Let cool for several minutes before enjoying.
