Real talk- you don’t have to peel the apples, but it does make for a tougher bite. Peeling the apples makes for a soft easy to munch pastry, but if you’re lazy like me, it tastes the same at the end and sometimes you just can’t be bothered. Serve these drizzled with honey, sprinkled with powdered sugar, or eat them warm with a cold scoop of vanilla ice cream!
- 2 large apples (honeycrisp or granny smith)
- 2 Tbsp light brown sugar (packed)
- 2 Tbsp white sugar
- 2 Tbsp melted butter
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ⅛ tsp ground mace or nutmeg
- ¼ tsp kosher salt
- 1 sheet GF puff pastry (thawed, I used Schar brand)
- honey (for drizzling *optional)
- powdered sugar (for sprinkling *optional)
- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Once the oven has reached 400° allow it to stay for there for 10 minutes before putting your pastries in.
- While the oven preheats peel and thinly slice your apples.
- In a bowl combine, brown and white sugar, cinnamon, mace, melted butter, salt, and stir together. Add the apple slices to the bowl and toss in the sugar mixture to coat each slice evenly.
- Line a baking tray with parchment or a silicone baking mat.
- Cut your puffed pastry into 4 even pieces, and place on your prepared baking try spaced evenly apart. Brush each piece lightly with your beaten egg and water.
- Divide your slices evenly, and lay your apples down the middle of your pastry squares tightly overlapping each slice.
- Bake the puffs for 25-30 minutes on the middle rack of your oven.
- Pastries are ready when the apples are soft and the pastry is a deep golden brown, allow to cool slightly and enjoy drizzled with honey and powdered sugar.
