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.
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 Puff Pastry
2-3 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.
