I made these for my mum as she loves apple and cinnamon and a wee treat now and then. I first saw these on Pinterest and just had to give them a try. Not only do they look amazingly good they taste fantastic. Would be lovely served with some ice cream or cream.

Makes 6

Ready rolled Puff Pastry

2 tbsp Apricot Jam

2 Pink Lady Apples

Flour for rolling pastry

Juice from 1/2 lemon

Cinnamon Powder

little icing sugar to decorate

 

  1. Firstly preheat oven to 180 deg.
  2. Cut apples in half and remove core and any seeds, very thinly slice the apples to make arch like shapes.
  3. Fill a bowl 1/2 full with water and squeeze the lemon juice in, place the apple slices in the water and microwave on full power for about 3-4 minutes until apples are soft and flexible.
  4. Remove and allow to cool.
  5. Mix apricot jam with 1 tbsp water and microwave for 1 minute on full power. Remove and allow to cool.
  6. Roll out your pastry thinly, and cut into strips about 6-8 inches long and 2 inches wide.
  7. Spread a little of the Apricot Jam onto pastry.            20160312_111148
