I just LOVE pastries filled with Apples and Cinnamon. Therefore, I wanted to try a new thing which I haven’t tried before… Apple and Cinnamon Pasties. These were fun to bake and tasted yummy!!! Personally, I think the dough tastes something between pasty and croissant dough. The Apple and Cinnamon Pasties are great for breakfast or just as yummy snack. 😀
Recipe (makes 18)
- 500 gr (8.3 dl) plain flour
- 125 gr butter
- 25 gr yeast for sweet doughs
- 25 gr (2 tablespoons) caster sugar
- 1 ½ teaspoons salt
- 1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
- 2 ½ dl lukewarm whole milk
- 4-5 Golden Delicious apples
- ½ dl caster sugar
- 3/4 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1 egg
Mix the yeast with the lukewarm milk.
Add the caster sugar, vanilla sugar and salt.
Cut the butter into smaller pieces and put them into the same bowl as the ingredients above.
Save 1 dl of flour for later and pour the rest of it into the bowl.
Work and knead everything all together for about 10 minutes until you get a smooth and firm dough.
Cover the bowl with a tea towel and let the dough rise for about one hour.
Peel the apples and cut them into small pieces. Thereafter, mix them with caster sugar and cinnamon until everything is just incorporated.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.
Make 18 small balls of the dough.
Roll out each of them pretty thinly.
Add about one and half tablespoons of filling on one of the dough’s sides.
Fold the “empty” dough side over the filling so it looks like a crescent. Pinch it tightly with your fingers, and in the end, with help of a fork “pinch” it a bit more.
Place the pasties onto the parchment paper on a baking sheet and brush them with eggs.
Bake the pasties in the middle of the oven for 20 minutes.
Let them cool a bit before being served.
Happy Apple Cinnamon Baking Day! 😀
