Apple Pie with Steamed Apples Made in a Silicone Steamer

Apple Pie with Steamed Apples Made in a Silicone Steamer

Since it is very easy to make steamed apples using a silicone steamer, I used it as filling to make an apple pie. These are flaky right out of the oven. If they cool down, microwave before serving.

Ingredients: Makes 9 small square pies

Frozen puff pastry
2 sheets
Egg yolk
1
Cinnamon
to taste
Cake flour
as needed
Parchment paper
as needed
Steamed apple:
Apple
1/2
Sugar
2 tablespoons
Honey
1/2 tablespoon
Lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon

Steps

1. Take the puff pastry out of the freezer and thaw at room temperature until softened.
2. Peel and core the apple, then cut it into 8 equal sections. Cut them into 2-mm slices.
3. Add the apple from Step 2 into a Lekue steam case, then mix in the sugar, honey, and lemon juice. Cover with a lid and microwave at 600W for about 2 and 1/2 minutes.
4. Stir the apple, then cook 2 more minutes with the lid open. (Use a large steam case to prevent the juice from overflowing.)
5. Dust your cutting board or work surface with cake flour. Roll out the puff pastry with a rolling pin until it doubles in size.
6. Divide the apple into 9 portions and place onto the puff pastry in a even grid, leaving space around each portion. Sprinkle cinnamon and brush the beaten egg yolk onto the pastry around each portion. (Reserve a small amount of egg yolk.)
7. Cover the top with the other piece of puff pastry, press the pastry down around the filling where the beaten egg was applied.
8. With a knife, divide the pie into 9 even squares.
9. Press the edges of the squares with the back of the fork to seal the dough.
10. Place the squares from Step 9 onto a parchment-paper-lined cookie sheet. Brush the egg yolk on the tops for glazing.
11. Bake the dough from Step 10 in a preheated oven at 200℃ for about 10 minutes or until the pies puff up and the tops become golden.
