  • Dessert



  • 1 sheet store-bought puff pastry, thawed
  • 3 KORU apples (peeled, cored, thinly sliced)
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ c dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg & cardamom
  • 1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • ½ c chopped pecans
  • 1 large egg, lightly whisked (for egg wash)
  • demerara sugar


  • 1 ¼ c sifted powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp whole milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 400º F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out puff pastry to 12 x 12 in. and cut into six (6) 4 x 6 in. rectangles. With a small knife, lightly score a ½ in. border around the inside of each rectangle (be careful not to cut all the way through).
  3. In a large bowl, combine apples, lemon juice, brown sugar, spices, and flour. Leaving the borders clear, overlap your apples in the middle of each pastry. Sprinkle chopped pecans over the top.
  4. Brush the borders with egg wash and sprinkle with demerara sugar (any coarse sugar works).
  5. Bake at 400º F on the middle rack for 15-20 minutes or until desired browning.
  6. Once completely cooled, whisk together glaze ingredients and drizzle over the pastries. Enjoy as-is or top with your favorite ice cream or whipped cream!
