Ingredients

  • 1 large red apple
  • 1/6 pie crust about 70g
  • 2 tablespoon melted butter
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • Vanilla ice cceam for serving
  • Caramel sauce for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F and grease two ramekins
  • Cut the apples in half, remove the core, but keep the red peel. Slice them as thin as possible and place on a plate. Microwave for about 45 seconds until they slightly soften and become limp but not mushy. Cover the apples with a plastic wrap and towel while prepping the pastry to ensure they remain soft.
  • Roll out the puff pastry and cut into 2 strips, each 1/8-inch thick, about 3” wide by 12 to 14” long. There will be extra pastry left
  • Spread melted butter over the surface. Mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl, and sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the pastry dough.
  • Place the apple slices along the edge, starting about 1 inch in from the end, overlapping slightly, with the round part up, partly sticking out of the dough
  • Fold the bottom half of the dough over the apples. Mix the egg with 1 tablespoon of water to make an egg wash, then brush the egg wash on top. Sprinkle more cinnamon sugar on top.
  • Fold the puff pastry "closing" the apples as you roll.
  • Place inside the greased ramekin, and repeat for the other strips
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the pastry is well browned.
  • Allow to cool and serve with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce, if desired.

Notes

Recipe: This recipe was adapted from Food Wishes
Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will last about 3-4 days in the fridge.
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However you can use any pie crust you'd like and you can also use any fruit you'd like. If you prefer to skip the egg wash, you can use extra butter. If you prefer to skip the butter, you can use coconut oil.
Make Ahead: If you're making your own pie crust, you can make that in advance. If you want to make the whole dessert in advance, just be sure to coat the apple slices with lemon juice so they don't brown.
Technique: If you prefer not to use a microwave for the apple slices, you can simply cook them on low heat. You want them to be flexible but not soft.
If you prefer to use a muffin pan instead of a ramekin, you can reduce the heat to 375°F. and cook about 45 minutes
