Step 6 – Filling is done when apples are soft (not too mushy) and there should not be a lot of water left. Set aside and let it cool.

METHODS – Filling the puff (Using 3 sheets for this recipe)

I use store bought PAMPAS puff pastry because it is fast and easy. Do make sure it is thawed until pliable. For this, we will only be using 3 sheets.Pastry - 1Step 1 – Run knife to divide each sheet into 4.

Pastry - 2Step 2 – Place apple filling (approx. 40 grams) on one side of the pastry leaving 1 cm margins away from the sides. Wet the sides with water using your finger tips and fold the other half over. Firmly pressing the sides to close it.

Pastry - 3Step 3 – Using a fork, press the fork firmly on the pastry. Continuously run it through 3 sides of the pastry avoiding the part where you fold. This will seal the pastry tight. Once done, place it on a baking sheet which is lines with baking proof paper.

Brush the egg wash (TIP: How to make an egg wash below), and put it into the oven for 15 minutes at 180 degrees.
