Ingredients

  • 5 Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and chopped into small chunks
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup caramel sauce (plus extra for serving)
  • 3 sheets defrosted shortcrust pastry
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • extra sugar, to sprinkle

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius (fan-forced). Lightly grease 6 holes in a standard muffin tin and set aside. 
  • Place the chopped granny smith apples, lemon juice, caster sugar and water into a microwave safe bowl. Heat on high for 2 minutes. Stir and continue to heat in 1 minute intervals until the apple has just started to soften. 
  • Drain and remove the liquid from the apples. 
  • Stir the caramel sauce through the drained apples and place the mixture into the fridge to cool. 
  • Meanwhile, cut 6 circles from the shortcrust pastry sheets (large enough to cover the base and sides of the muffin holes). Press the circles into the muffin holes. 
  • Drain any excess caramel sauce that hasn't been soaked up by the apples off.
  • Fill the muffin holes 3/4 of the way to the top. 
  • Cut small thin strips of the leftover shortcrust pastry and place over the top of the muffins in a criss-cross pattern. Press the pastry strips into the pastry base. 
  • Brush the pastry with egg and sprinkle over some extra sugar. 
  • Bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until the pastry is golden. Allow to cool slightly before serving with ice-cream or cream.
