We have made this several times now, and the results are really yummy. The frozen puff pastry I bought recommends baking at 400 and not 350. For me, cooking at 350 for 20 minutes yielded a less puffy and anemic sort of looking pastry much like some of the pastries pictured up to the left. When cooked at 400 for 25 minutes, the pastries rocked!!! Thanks for sharing such a simple and tasty recipe!!!
These were really good, I think next time I will add a little bit of raw sugar on the tops
I cooked the apples in the saucepan with all the other ingredients to soften them up first for about 5 minutes. Threw in some blueberries and dried cranberries as well. Delicious with custard. The puff pastry would be better if you sprinkle some sugar on it first.
