Apple Pieletts

Aug. 4, 2011 |

On my quest to find the ultimate picnic pudding, I stumbled upon a recipe for a sort of apple samosa.

After a teensy bit of tweaking, I give you my deliciously decadent apple pie-letts. They're easy to wrap-up and sling in your picnic hamper, but equally impressive if you fancied whipping them out at a dinner party. Best of all? They're only about 200calories each (sans ice-cream). They taste, look and smell deliciously naughty, but in fact, they're secretly saintly!

You'll need:- 2 cooking apples 2 oz caster sugar 1tsp ground mixed spice 1 pack filo pastry 2 tbsp melted low fat spread (lurpack light) Preheat your oven to 180 째C  or 350 째F .

Peel, chop & core your apples & then pop them in a saucepan.

Add your sugar, spice and all things nice.

Add 2 table spoons of water, cover and leave to cook for a few mins.

Stir now and then, until it looks like slightly chunky baby food.

Leave to cool a little.

While you wait, tackle your ever so delicate fill pastry.

Take just 4 sheets of the pastry and lay it flat on a board. Cut into thirds and brush with your melted butter.

Add a little more than a tablespoon of your apple mixture and fold over to make a triangle. Keep folding it over until you get the end of the sheet.

In a cup mix a little sugar with warm water, this will be your glaze.

Paint over the top of your parcels and pop them in a baking tray.

Leave them in the oven for 30-35mins, or until they look brown and crispy.

When they're done, leave them to cool a little, before serving with good quality ice cream.

Sumptuous.

(You can also add sultanas to your pieletts, but as far as I'm concerned, sultanas are the devil's fruit and I would rather not pick them out of my pudding.)
