2 pink lady apples
2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
1 sheet lighter puff pastry
2 tbsp apricot jam
Calorie controlled cooking spray
½ tsp icing sugar

1. Heat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas mark 6. Cut the apples in half, top to bottom. Core, then slice thinly across the width. Half-.ill a medium bowl with water; add the lemon juice and apple. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Drain; toss in the cinnamon.

2. Unroll the pastry and use a rolling pin to further roll it out to 50cm long. Cut widthways into 10 equal strips. Mix the jam with 2 tbsp of water and brush down the centre of each strip. Put 8 apple slices along the top half of each strip, slightly overlapping with the peel at the top. Fold the bottom half of the pastry up and over the apple slices, leaving the tops visible.
