Apple Puff Squares

We don’t have dessert in our house very often, but sometimes we feel like a special treat. This is a really quick and easy recipe that can be made from a few stock ingredients. It looks a bit fancy (I’ve used it for dinner parties too), but is quick and easy to put together.

1 sheet puff pastry
60g (2 oz) butter, melted
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground mixed spice
2 medium apples (I used Granny Smith)

1. Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F).
2. Cut pastry into 4 squares and place on an oven tray (I lined the oven tray with baking paper, just in case)

3. Mix together butter, sugar and spice, and brush half the mixture over the pastry squares.

4.  Peel apples, cut into quarters and remove core (if you look at the pictures, I got lazy and didn’t peel the apples. This was a mistake as it was difficult to bite through the apple skins). Cut into thin slices and lay on top of the pastry squares. (It’s nicer if the apples are a bit smaller than the ones I used, so you can leave a small border around the edge, but make do with what you have!)

5. Brush apples with remaining butter mixture.

6. Bake for 15 minutes or until apple is tender and golden.

7. Serve with a dollop of cream or ice cream (or nothing if you are trying to convince yourself you’re being healthy)
