Serves 4 – 6


  • 1/2 pkg frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 large apples, cored and sliced
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • a shake of cinnamon
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. Set a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the butter and when the foam subsides, sauté the apples for 3-4 minutes, until they’re soft and starting to turn golden.
  3. Add the brown sugar and cinnamon and cook for a few more minutes, until any excess moisture cooks off and they’re softened and syrupy.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll the pastry out into a 11-12 inch square (or just unroll it, if it’s pre-rolled). Transfer to a parchment-lined sheet and spread the apples down one half, leaving half an inch or so around the three sides.
  5. Fold over the pastry to cover the apples – it doesn’t have to look perfect – and press down around the edges with the tines of a fork.
  6. Brush with beaten egg and cut a few slashes in the top with a sharp knife to help steam escape. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until deep golden. Let cool for a few minutes before cutting into slices or wedges.
