The Story

Like a humble apple pie, but with a bit more love put into it.

When food is prepared with love, I am convinced that the people who eat it can feel it. This is a great example of a simple dish that can be transformed with a bit of extra love and care.

Servings 8
Prep Time 20 mins
Cook Time 45 mins


  • 1 medium sheet puff pastry
  • 2 medium red apples
  • 1/2 medium lemon
  • 1 tsp jam


  • Preheat oven to 180˚C. Squeeze half a lemon in a microwave-proof bowl. Thinly slice the apples and place it in the bowl and cover with water. Microwave the apples for 2-3 minutes, drain and set them aside.
  • In the meantime, mix the jam with a bit of hot water to make it thinner and easier to brush.
  • Cut pastry sheet into eight long equal strips. Brush a bit of jam across the middle of your first strip. Then place apple slices, overlapping across the top edge of the pastry strip, sitting just outside the edge.
  • Fold the pastry strip in half all along and roll it up into a tight scroll. Pop it into one of the muffin tray to hold its shape. Repeat 7 more times.
  • Bake in the oven for 30 – 45 mins, or until golden brown on the top and cooked through in the middle.
