These crisp, flaky apple pastries are lightly spiced with ground cinnamon. Maximum taste for minimum effort

Ingredients

Apple, granny smith, unpeeled, fresh

3 medium, peeled, cored, cut into 2cm cubes

Brown sugar

2 tbs

Sultanas

2 tbs

Lemon juice

1 tbs

Ground cinnamon

½ tsp, plus extra to dust

Icing sugar

2 tsp

Uncooked filo pastry

4½ sheet(s), fresh

Oil spray

5 x 3 second spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Place the apple, sultanas, brown sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 10 minutes or until the apple is tender but still hold its shape. Set aside to cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 180°C. Spray 6 holes in a 12 hole (1/3 cup) muffin tin with oil.
  3. Lightly spray 1 sheet of pastry with oil. Cut crossways into quarters. Cut each piece in half to make 8 rectangles. Repeat with remaining pastry to make 36 rectangles in total. Set aside 12 rectangles.
  4. Layer 4 rectangles, slightly overlapping, to form a star shape. Press into 1 muffin hole. Repeat to make another 5 cases. Divide the apple mixture between the cases.
  5. Layer 2 of the reserved rectangles on each pie to cover the filling and scrunch slightly to make the pie tops. Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastry is crisp and golden.
  6. Serve warm dusted with icing sugar.
