Baking with my kids is one of my favorite things so I am always trying to think up new and fun ideas for us to make together. These apple pie pastries came together because of their love for apples and being able to eat with their hands.
This recipe fills the house with the comforting smell of warm spices and baked apples. Perfect for company and those holiday parties. These pasties would also be a lovely breakfast accompaniment for guests.
I added the caramel sauce that I think gives an extra richness that is so perfect for fall. You could also drizzle them with icing for a more traditional pastry. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did.
- 4 Granny Smith Apples
- 1 Tablespoon Sugar (plus extra for dusting)
- 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
- 1 Teaspoon Flour
- 1/4 Teaspoon Cornstarch

1. Peel, core, and thinly slice apples.
2. In a large mixing bowl stir together apples and next 7 ingredients.
3. Flour your surface and roll out two sections of puff pastry dough.
4. Arrange apple mixture in three rows down the pastry dough. Leave a space in between each row and a space in the middle of each row so that you can make 6 individually pastries.
5. Cover with the second section of puff pastry dough and crimp edges of each row down the sides and in the middle.
6. Cut vents into each section and then cut the sections apart. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle generously with granulated sugar. Then place on a greased cooking sheet.
7. Place in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes until the pastries are golden brown.
8. Drizzle with caramel sauce and enjoy! *
