It is cold and cloudy outside, and from my oven there is a pleasant aroma of Apple pastries - these are delicious, tender, airy, moderately sweet puffs. I used a ready-made puff pastry without yeast, and the filling is Apple mousse, then I made a leaf pattern on the puff, so that the baking reminded of the warmth and charm of the outgoing autumn.
Let's make Apple mousse. Apples peel and cut into cubes. Add lemon juice and sugar. To get the yellow Apple mousse, after peeling and slicing the apples, immediately pour lemon juice over them, do not let the apples become brown. Cook the apples in a small saucepan.
Add water and vanilla sugar and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Cover the pan, cook for about 15 minutes, until the apples are softened and the water has evaporated.
Use a blender to make a smooth mousse or just mash the apples into a puree. Continue to cook the Apple mousse until it thickens.
Ready Apple mousse to cool.
Now take a sheet of puff pastry and using a cookie cutter to cut circles out of the dough. Do 8 circles, trim test I, too, used, broke a still two circle. Only 10 pieces.
Put the dough pieces on a baking sheet. On one side of the cut circle put one teaspoon of Apple mousse.
Then fold the circle in half to close the filling and press well along the edge of the workpiece.
Brush with beaten egg. Using a knife, carefully make a drawing of the sheet on the surface of the puff, try not to cut through it.
Put the puffs in the oven. Bake at 180 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes. Focus on your technique, ovens may vary.
