Courses: Dessert
Serves: 6 people

Recipe Ingredients

6   Apples - peeled and cored
  Lemon juice
1/2 cup 99g / 3.5ozWhite sugar - approx
1 teaspoon 5mlCinnamon
  Brown sugar
2   Pie pastry for 2 pies
  Sugar Sauce
2 cups 474mlWater
3/4 cup 148g / 5.2ozSugar
2 teaspoons 10mlVanilla
2 tablespoons 30mlButter
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlNutmeg
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlMace

Recipe Instructions

Roll out pastry and cut into squares enough to cover apples completely.  Peel and core apples. Roll in lemon juice.  Then roll in white sugar and cinnamon combined.  Place on pastry square. Stuff core cavity with brown sugar, butter, brown sugar in equal parts.  (The amount depends on size of core cavity, just stuff full.)

Fold pastry up around apple to completely enclose it.  Place in pan.  Prepare sugar sauce by mixing water, sugar, vanilla, butter, nutmeg, and mace and boiling for 1 minute.


Apples may be frozen in pastry (before sugar sauce is added) if desired. Good dessert to make ahead if you have lots of apples around. Just let thaw when ready to use, and cover with sugar sauce and bake as usual.
