“Got this recipe from a Family Circle cookbook called "Perfect Pastries". I love how simple this is. The original recipe uses 1/2 quantity of rough puff pastry (for which they have a separate recipe) - but I just used puff pastry squares and am posting the recipe here with that alteration.”

Directions

  1. Lightly grease a large oven tray.
  2. Cut apples in half from stem, core - but leave unpeeled.
  3. Slice as thinly as you can, retaining the shape.
  4. Place puff pastry squares well spaced-out on tray.
  5. Spread each pastry with a tsp of apricot jam, leaving a border.
  6. Divide apple slices evenly and arrange along each pastry piece, leaving border.
  7. Sprinkle the apples with sugar and dot with a small cube of butter.
  8. Use the blunt side of a knife to make indentations along edges of pastry - this helps the pastry to rise and flake.
  9. Chill for 20 minutes.
  10. Preheat oven to 415°F and bake pastries for 20 minutes or till puffed and golden.
  11. While hot, brush with warmed, sieved jam to glaze.
  12. Serve warm or cold.
