Strangely, hubby got a sweet tooth on the first day of the year 2008 and wished for something sweet for breakfast with his coffee… Had a quick look at the pantry and fridge then in the freezer; spotted my remaining puff pastry.. and well, I can do something sweet in say 25 – 30 minutes.
2 sheets puff pastries
5 pcs. apples
4 Tbsp. Honey
1 Tbsp. Butter
1 tsp. cinnamon powder
½ Cup ground toasted peanuts
1 pc. Egg (slightly beaten)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees C. Thaw pastry in the fridge.
Peel and slice apples thinly. Excluding the core at the center. (Picture below)
Heat butter in a pan, add sliced apples, drizzle honey, sprinkle cinnamon powder, cook further until the apples are caramelized. They will be nicely wilted and brown.
Turn off heat, transfer the apples in a plate and place in the freezer for 5 minutes to cool down.
A handy tip: The filling should be at least at room temperature or cooler when introduced to the puff pastry, as pastry would tear easily when you put something hot and difficult to handle.
Meanwhile, bash some toasted peanuts until they are roughly fine.
Lay flat the puff pastry and sprinkle the nuts on half of the pastry, leaving the half to roll. Sprinkle the nuts on lower half of the pastry. Add the prepared apple slices and roll the pastry tucking the filling inside and forming like a log. Seal the edges with an egg wash (slightly beaten egg). Brush the top of the pastry with an egg wash, make slits on the top, Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown. (Picture Below) Serve in slices.
