1 egg, beaten
1 package of Wewalka Puff Pastry
½ (120ml) c. of unsweetened apple sauce
powdered sugar for dusting
¼ cup (60ml) of apple jelly
HOW TO MAKE FRENCH APPLE PASTRIES
Step 1: Ready the oven to 425 degrees F or 218 degrees C.
Step 2: Peel the apples and slice off the 4 sides with a sharp knife, making sure to leave a square core and 4 apple cheeks.
Step 3: Place each apple cheek on a board, cut side down, then slice them very thinly. Set aside.
Step 4: Unroll the puff pastry and arrange them on the parchment paper. Then, transfer the puff pastry to a cutting board, short side at the ends. Slice the pastry into 3 vertical strips.
Step 5: Cut each vertical strip into thirds to make 9 equal-lined squares. Transfer the squares to a baking sheet while still on the parchment paper.
Step 6: Brush the border of each pastry square with the egg wash. Place 1 ½ tbsp of apple sauce in the center of each pastry, then top with an apple cheek. Start folding the corners until the pastry meets the apple. Then, brush it again with egg wash.
Step 7: In the preheated oven, place the dish and bake for about 25 minutes.
Step 8: Meanwhile, warm the apple jelly in a small saucepan until melted.
Step 9: With the apple jelly, brush each of the pastries and allow them to cool for at least 10 minutes. Then, dust with powdered sugar.
Step 10: Serve right away. Enjoy!
You can prepare the pastry in advance. Loosely tent the pasty using foil and keep it in the fridge. Brush the pastry with egg wash before baking.
If desired, swap the apple jelly with Apricot jelly. This will give a golden color and tart flavor to the pastries.
