Ingredients

Apple Filling:

  • 2 cups peeled and chopped apples
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 1 tbsp water

Pastry:

  • 2 – 12×12 sheets of frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • cinnamon and sugar for sprinkling
  • 1/2 cup shredded Le Gré des Champs cheese (a swiss cheese)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

Apple Filling:

  1. In a sauce pan over low/medium heat, add the chopped apples, sugar, cinnamon, cornstarch and water. Stir and cook until the apples are soft and the mixture is thickened.
  2. Once thickened, remove from heat and set aside.

Pastry:

  1. On a lightly floured surface, roll out your pastry sheets. Cut each sheet into 6 even squares.
  2. Spoon out 2 tsp of the apple mixture into the centres of the pastry squares. Then fold the dough over making them into triangles.
  3. Press the edges of each pastry with a fork to seal them.
  4. Brush the sealed pastries with the milk, then generously sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
  5. Then sprinkle on the shredded cheese (as shown above).
  6. Bake them on an ungreased cookie sheet for about 12 – 15 minutes. Make sure to watch them to make sure they don’t burn. The pastries should be golden brown when done.
