Apple Windmills Recipe

Apple Windmills Recipe

Ingredients: Makes 6

225 g/8 oz Puff Pastry
1 large eating (dessert) apple
15 ml/1 tbsp lemon juice
30 ml/2 tbsp apricot jam (conserve), sieved (strained)
15 ml/1 tbsp water

Method:

Roll out the pastry and cut into 13 cm/5 in squares. Make four 5 cm/2 in cuts on the diagonal lines of the pastry squares in from the edge towards the centre. Moisten the centre of the squares, and press one point from each corner into the centre to make a windmill. Peel, core and thinly slice the apple and toss in the lemon juice. Arrange the apple slices on the centre of the windmills and bake in a preheated oven at 220C/425F/gas mark 7 for 10 minutes until puffed and golden. Heat the jam with the water until well blended, then brush over the apples and pastry to glaze. Leave to cool.
