“Appelflappen” well known in the Netherlands.
This is a traditional snack for lunch, you can eat them for dessert or for nightsnack. Usually Appelflappen has this triangle shape. But like always we wanted to make our own version, square shape with a cute heart in it. This Appelflap is really easy to make, made of puff pastry filled with apple (add some raisins if you want), cinnamon and sugar for flavour.
1 packet of puff pastry
3 apples,peeled cored and chopped
-Cut the apples into small pieces and mix with the sugar, raisins and cinnamon ( you can decide how much sugar cinnamon etc you want).
-Defrost the puff pastry and fold each puff double so you can see a line in the middle.
-Open it and cut with a heart shape cutter on one side and on the other side put some apple mixture.
-Fold it again and press the edges using a little water to make it stick well. Use a fork to make these marks. When making the traditional appelflap you can brush the top of the appelflap with beaten egg and sprinkle with a little sugar. But with our version we didn’t.
-Place it on a parchment paper or baking sheet. Bake the appelflap 20-25 minutes in a preheated oven at 180 degrees. Bake it till its golden brown.
-When you have some apple mix left, put it in the heart shape to fill it. Sprinkle with powder sugar.
The picture below shows how it looks like before putting it in the oven.
