Description

These are very well known in the Netherlands and you can eat them for dessert or for your coffee break. Anything goes! It’s made of puff pastry and filled with a mix of apples and raisins.

Ingredients

  • 1 package Roomboterbladerdeeg (These Are 10 Sheets Of Puff Pastry About 20x20cm or 8x8 Inch In Size)
  • 4 whole Apples, Preferably Elstar, Jonagold Or Granny Smith
  • 5-⅓ ounces, weight Raisins, Preferably Sultana Raisins, Soaked In Warm Water So They Puff Up A Bit
  • 4 Tablespoons Brown Sugar, Plus Some Extra To Sprinkle On Top Of The Appelflappen
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 whole Egg, Whisked

Preparation

Separate the frozen puff pastry sheets and let them warm up a bit (for about 10 minutes).

Preheat the oven (220 degrees Celsius, or about 430 degrees Fahrenheit).

Peel the apples, remove the core and dice them.

Mix the apple with the raisins (without the water!), sugar and cinnamon. If you like, you can add a few drops of lemon juice, but that’s not really necessary or anything.

Take a sheet of puff pastry and put a bit of the apple mix on top.

Grab a brush and brush a bit of water on the sides of the square. You can use your fingers for this too; I always use my hands for this, it’s just as easy.

Fold the sheet diagonally, so the apple mix is inside the triangle.

Softly press the edges with a fork so they stick together.

Softly brush the top with the whisked egg and sprinkle on some sugar.

Put them in the oven for about 15 minutes.

I was born in Holland and these are surely not the Appelflappen that I used to eat (always on New Years Day) Ours were just apple rings dipped in a batter and then deep fried.
