Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 6

1 Pound(s) Pack chilled puff pastry
A little beaten egg
3 Red-skinned dessert apples
1 1/2 Ounce(s) Butter, melted
1 Tablespoon(s) Icing sugar
6 Ounce(s) Marzipan
Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface 3mm (1/8 inch) thick.
Cut out 6 circles approximately 8cm (3 inches) in diameter and place
on a damp baking tray. Brush the pastry circles with the beaten egg.
Roll out the marzipan and cut out 6 smaller circles approximately 6cm
(21/2 inches) in diameter. Lay on top of the pastry circles. Core and
quarter the apples. Slice each into quarter into 3. Arrange apple
slices on the marzipan, brush with melted butter and bake in a
preheated oven 220øC/425øF/Gas Mark 7 for 15 minutes, until the
pastry is golden. Dredge with icing sugar and serve warm or cold with
creme fraiche or cream. Note: Red-skinned dessert apples look
particularly attractive on this pastry. Good varieties to choose would
be Empire, Spartan or Red Delicious. Converted by MC_Buster. NOTES :
Using chilled puff pastry makes this impressive dessert or tea-time
break quick and easy to make. Converted by MM_Buster v2.0l.
