Apple puff pastry rolls or scrolls with a warming apple cinnamon filling, you can have these treats ready to serve within an hour.

To make these apple pastries you will only need a few ingredients and very little time. Yet the results are delicious. You can prepare the apple puff pastry rolls in about 15 minutes, bake them for about 25 minutes and serve them very fresh to your delighted guests.

I can hardly imagine anyone not liking them, so keep them in mind for those times when you have guests but not too much time to bake.

Ingredients

Puff pastry:

  • I like working with puff pastry, ready-made one, of course, this is the only pastry I’ve never made myself… Well, I did make some kind of “fake” one, which I used to bake another delicious apple cake last year, but the real one with lots of butter and lots of rolling is still unknown territory for me.
  • So until that happy day when I will make my own, I am still using the ready-made one, which is so easy to handle and tastes great (at least now as I have no comparison to the real homemade thing).
  • I used already rolled pastry sheets from the refrigerator section of the supermarket, roughly about 25 cm/ 9.8 inches long. The exact size is not of vital importance, a bit more or less should be OK.

Apples:

  • I used regular apples, which are crisp and kind of sweet-sour, not too sweet.
  • Otherwise, you will only need 1 lemon (preferably organic as you will use some of the peel as well), a small amount of unsalted butter, some sugar, and cinnamonapple puff pastry, Apple Puff Pastry Rolls.

How to make?

  • Peel and finely cube the apples, mix the cubes with 2 tablespoons lemon juice and a little bit of grated lemon zest.
  • In a small bowl mix together the sugar and the cinnamon.
  • Melt the butter in a small pot.
  • Unroll one rectangle of pastry on your working surface and brush it with half of the butter. Sprinkle with half of the sugar-cinnamon mixture.
  • Spread the apple cubes all over the pastry. Cover with the second rectangle. Brush this pastry sheet with the remaining butter and sprinkle with the remaining sugar-cinnamon mixture.
  • Roll starting from the long side and make sure that the seam faces down.
  • Cut the roll into 3 cm/ 1.18 inch wide pieces.
  • Place them on baking sheets lined with baking paper leaving some space between them.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
  • Let cool on the baking sheets and serve as fresh as possible.

How to serve?

I find it is important to serve the apple pastries shortly after baking them, they are best fresh. Take them out of the oven and serve them as soon as they are cooled, while they are still crispy and flaky.

If they stay too long they will still have a good taste, but the texture of the pastry will suffer, it will become kind of soggy and chewy, which is not what you’re looking for when eating anything made with puff pastry.

So keep warm and enjoy these little autumnal treats!
