Servings and Ingredients
|1 Hy-Vee large egg|
|1 tbsp. water|
|¼ c. Hy-Vee sugar|
|1 tsp. Hy-Vee salt|
|2 tbsp. Hy-Vee all-purpose flour|
|1 tsp. Hy-Vee ground cinnamon|
|½ tsp. Hy-Vee nutmeg|
|½ tsp. Hy-Vee ground cloves|
|4 medium Pink Lady apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced|
|3 tbsp. golden raisins|
|3 tbsp. Hy-Vee dried cranberries|
|½ c. Hy-Vee English walnut pieces|
|1 (17.3 oz) pkg Pepperidge Farm puff pastry sheets (2 sheets), thawed|
|Hy-Vee powdered sugar, optional|
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, beat egg and water with a fork; set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine sugar, salt, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Add apples, raisins, cranberries and walnuts, stirring until coated evenly with mixture.
- Sprinkle additional flour on work surface. Unfold each pastry sheet on work surface. Roll each pastry sheet into a 9-by-18-inch rectangle. Using a sharp knife, cut each pastry into 3-by-3-inch squares. Divide apple mixture among 18 squares. Lay another pastry square over the top and pinch the edges closed. The pastry will be very full. Set unbaked pastries on a baking sheet. Brush tops of pastries with egg mixture. Cut several slits in the top of the pastry.
- Bake for 25 minutes or until pastry is golden brown. Bake in batches, if needed, refrigerating unbaked pastries until ready to bake. Dust cooled pastries with powdered sugar, if desired.
