Oh, How Easy! Country Style Oven Baked Apple Pie

Even though it's easy, this is a rustic and delicious apple pie! Use store-bought puff pastry for this quick and tasty snack. It's ready to eat in about 40 minutes.

Ingredients: 1 puff pastry worth

Store-bought frozen puff pastry
1
Apple
about 1/2
Butter
about 15 to 20 g
Granulated sugar
1 to 2 tablespoons
Cinnamon powder
to taste
Apricot jam or honey
for glazing (optional)

Steps

1. Prepare by thawing the frozen puff pastry for about 5 to 10 minutes. Bring 1/2 the amount of butter to room temperature or lightly microwave to soften. Core the apple and slice to 3 mm thickness.
2. Preheat the oven to 210°C for about 25 minutes. Use a knife to lightly mark the surface of the puff pastry about 1 cm around the entire sheet, then pierce the rest with a fork and spread on 1/2 of the softened butter, avoiding the edges.
3. Arrange the apple slices on top of the buttered pastry surface, then with sprinkle small pats of the remaining butter, sugar, and cinnamon powder. Bake in an oven for about 25 minutes while keeping your eye on it.
4. Once it finishes baking, brush the surface with apricot jam or honey to glaze. The edges that were created by marking the surface should puff up and have a nice and crispy texture.

Story Behind this Recipe

I received a frozen puff pastry, so I made this simple apple pie. But since I don't really like mushy apples, I came up with a lightly baked apple pie that resembles the texture of baked apples.
