|Recipe Name:||Apple And Marzipan Presents||Submitted by:||Administrator|
|Number of Servings:||4|
4 Cox's apples, peeled and
1 Tablespoon(s) Lemon Juice
125 Gram(s) Golden marzipan, 4oz
1 375 gram pac fresh sweet
Beaten egg or milk to glaze
1 Tablespoon(s) Caster sugar
Preheat the oven to 180 Ã¸C, 350 Ã¸F, Gas Mark 4. Trim the apples into
squares and brush with lemon juice. Fill the apple cavities with
marzipan, and press remaining marzipan on top of the apples to form a
flat, square surface. Divide the pastry into 4 and roll out each
portion into a square large enough to wrap around the apple. Place an
apple, marzipan side down in the centre of a pastry square and bring
up the sides to enclose the apple, sealing the edges. Place seam down
on a lightly greased baking tray and repeat process with remaining
apples. Use pastry trimmings to form ribbons to decorate the
''presents''. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle over the sugar. Bake
in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes until golden. Alternative
ingredients- -Any small apple or pear may be used instead of coxs.
-White marzipan is a suitable alternative to golden. -Try cutting
shapes from any remaining pastry to decorate the ''parcels'' for
example flowers or holly leaves for Christmas. Converted by MC_Buster.
