This is my go to dessert when my family say "what's for dessert" and I have nothing prepared.
This is so easy my 10 year old makes this.
All you need is puff pastry, a few apples, some cinnamon, brown sugar and butter. Do I measure anything here, no. It is literally get a sheet of puff pastry, cut it up if you like, or leave it whole, top with some slices of apple, sprinkle on some cinnamon and brown sugar and add on a few pieces of chopped butter. That's it.
My favourite pastry brand is Careme as it is amazing, but use butter puff pastry, any brand, if you can't find Careme or find it too expensive.
This is one of those desserts you can make for 1 or you can make many.
This goes so quickly in my house, we all love it. The puff pastry puffs up on the sides, but gets a crisp toffee like edge from the melting of the brown sugar and butter as it bakes. The apples soften, and the middle gets a sweet sauce like consistency from the sugar and butter. And cinnamon and apples are just perfect together.
Next time you are needing a sweet treat, give this a go, it is a perfect little treat.
1 sheet Butter Puff Pastry
2-3 Pink Lady Apples, cored, sliced thinly
Unsalted Butter, chopped into small pieces
Preheat oven to 200C/180C fan forced.
Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Individual rectangles: Cut a sheet of puff pastry into 6 rectangles.
Place each rectangle onto your prepared tray. Carefully score (but don't cut through to the bottom) each rectangle about 1/2cm from the edge, giving it a border, where the pastry will puff up and rise around the apples.
Arrange the apples, overlapping, in a single row, trying not to get the apples over the border.
Sprinkle on some ground cinnamon, to taste.
Scatter over a few pieces of the butter.
Place in your preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until the pastry has cooked and is crisp.
