Christmas spiced apple pastries with Nutella®
INGREDIENTS for 24 servings
2 sheets store-bought frozen puff pastry sheets, partially thawed
1 small apple, skin on, cored, cut into 12 wedges
finely grated zest of ½ orange
1 tablespoon caster sugar
½ teaspoon mixed spice
1 ½ tablespoons dried cranberries, finely chopped
1 egg, whisked
1 teaspoon cinnamon sugar
Fresh raspberries and mint leaves, to decorate (optional)
To prepare this delicious recipe, 15g of Nutella® per person is enough to enjoy!
Preheat oven to 200C fan-forced. Line 2 oven trays with baking paper. Cut one sheet of puff pastry into 6 even rectangles. Slice each rectangle in half diagonally to create 12 triangles. Repeat with second pastry sheet to make 24 in total. Trim off a little of the base of each triangle so both long sides of the triangle are even lengths. Lay them out onto a clean dry work surface.
- Slice apple wedges in half lengthways to make baton-like pieces. Place into a large bowl, add zest and toss to coat.
- Sprinkle each triangle with combined sugar and mixed spice. Put an apple piece at the base of each triangle, then scatter with cranberries.
- Roll up pastry firmly to enclose filling. Arrange on prepared trays.
Brush with a little egg and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake for 15 minutes or until pastry is golden and apple is tender. Set aside on trays to cool.
Spoon Nutella into a piping bag or a small zip-lock bag, snip tip, and then drizzle over pastries.
Decorate with raspberries and mint leaves if desired. Serve warm or at room temperature.
