Tiny Apple Pies

Tiny Apple Pies

If you simply try to divide a pie up to share to many people, you tend to lose the taste and texture. If you use this recipe, you can easily share mini pies between 32 people.

Ingredients: Approx. 32 x 5cm2 apple pies

Apple
1
Granulated sugar
1 tablespoon
Cinnamon
as needed
Frozen puff pastry
4 sheets (10 x 17.5 cm)
Beaten egg
to glaze
Panko
as needed

Steps

1. Peel the apples and chop into cubes of less than 1 cm. Sprinkle them with sugar and cinnamon and mix.
2. Transfer to a plate and cover with saran wrap before microwaving for 5 minutes.
3. Drain away any liquid and cool. It may be good to try simmering them to evaporate the excess moisture.
4. Divide the frozen puff pastry into 8 2 x 4 cm pieces and roll out with a rolling pin until double the size and square shaped.
5. As in the photo, slice a square into the middle of the pastry, keeping the upper right and lower left corners in tack and attached.
6. Brush the beaten egg glaze over the edges and intersect the corners, as shown in the picture, and press together the cut corners. If you press quite lightly it will be hard for them to come apart after baking.
7. First, take a pinch of panko and coat the bottom of the pie with them. Then place the apple on top. Be careful not to overfill or your pies could burst!
8. Brush the glaze over the surface of the pastry and bake for 15 minutes in a 200℃ pre-heated oven. Once the pastry has risen and they turn golden brown, they're ready.
