pack of ready rolled pulled pastry
red skin apples
of lemon juice
splash of milk
Unroll the pastry and cut into quarters.
On each of the pastry pieces cut diagonal cuts into the outer thirds.
Cut the apples in half, scoop out the core and chop into thin/medium slices.
Pop them into a microwavable proof bowl and just cover with water and add the lemon juice.
Warm in the microwave to soften the apple slightly for about 90-120 seconds.
Drain and allow to cool.
Preheat the oven to 180ºC.
Overlap the slices in the middle third of the pastry.
Add a few frozen berries.
In a cup of jug mix together the egg and splash of milk.
Fold the outer pieces over each other, like a plait, over the fruit.
Using a pastry brush, brush the parcels (this will help them go golden brown).
Move them on to a baking sheet lined with greaseproof paper and bake until golden brown about 15-20 minutes.
Allow to cool before adding the eyes and serve straight away.
Notes Best served hot but also work very well cold.
