🍁🍂 All Rainy Sundays should consist of cozying up on the couch with a good book, a cup of tea and a sweet treat. Blogtober day 16 has the perfect recipe for you with these lovely little pastries.
What you will need (makes 4):
– 250g block of jus rol puff pastry
– 3 apples peeled, cored and thinly sliced
– 4 tsp apricot jam
– 1 tsp cinnamon
– 1 tsp nutmeg
– 2 tsp light brown sugar
– a sprinkling of icing sugar (optional)
Preheat your oven to 180c fan/200c convection oven
Dust your kitchen surface with any white flour you have in the house and roll out your pastry. Cut into four segments (rectangles or squares).
Distribute the apple slices evenly over half the length of each your pastry segments. Sprinkle the sugar and nutmeg over the apples.
Fold the other side of the pastry over the apples and seal with water or vegan butter and press down with a fork.
Heat up your jam in a pan on a low to medium heat until it becomes runny in consistency. Brush the top of your turnovers for a shiny glaze.
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes until golden brown. Dust with cinnamon and icing sugar and tuck in! 😊

* The ingredients in these tasty treats have many health benefits and I will list just a few:
– Cinnamon. What can I say? It’s one of those things that makes food taste like a treat and looks after you without you even realising it. It is a powerful antioxidant and anti inflammatory, great for protection against disease as well as painful conditions such as arthritis. It also has beneficial effect on neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s by protecting neurons and normalising neurotransmitter levels.
– Look up to cinnamon for the benefits nutmeg has to offer as they are very similar. It helps to improve cognitive function whilst simultaneously reducing insomnia and helping with immune function.
– Apples are also quite impressive when it comes to the prevention and the fight against disease. Reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer with their antioxidants and flavonoids, apples are always a good idea.
