Mini Apple Foldovers

Mini apple foldovers - Baby & Toddler Recipes

Apple foldovers are one my favorite things, ever! When I was a kid we used to get the most delicious apple flaps from Delifrance and they were just heaven! So in memory of that, I whipped up these little apple treats for our brunch and they were a hit with the whole family! They actually tasted really similar – only a little less sweet (which is a good thing, right?) And since they’re so small they’re a perfect finger food for toddlers and weaning bubbas.

I whipped them up in about 20 minutes, and then baked them for another 20. The only thing that takes some time is waiting for the apples to cook – but while they’re steamin’ you can do just about anything else, like tend to a needy toddler, for example.

The recipe’s below – hope you enjoy!

Mini Apple Foldovers

Print Recipe
Serves: 7 pieces Cooking Time: 45 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 apples, cored and sliced (note: the sweeter the apples the better)
  • 1tbsp lemon juice
  • 1tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 1 puff pastry roll (I used Leisi's 230g low fat dough)

Instructions

1

Preheat the oven to 180°C (350F).

2

Cut the apples into small cubes. Mix with lemon juice, brown sugar and cinnamon.

3

Transfer to a pot and cook on medium heat, covered, for 20 minutes, until apples are soft. Stir occasionally to make sure the sugar doesn’t stick to the pan.

4

Meanwhile, roll out your puff pastry, and cut out 7 circles, about 10cm in diameter (4 inches).

5

Scoop one tablespoon of the apple mixture onto one half of the circle (leave about 2cm space around the edge as that’s where you’ll fold over the pastry).

6

Put a little bit of egg wash on the edge of the pastry, and fold the circle in half to close the pastry. Close the edges by pressing down the tip of a fork.

7

Poke 3 slits into the surface to let the steam escape while baking.

8

Cover the surface with a bit of egg wash, and sprinkle with a pinch of sugar.

9

Place into the oven for 20 minutes, until golden brown.
