2 cups apples cut into cubes (4 apples)
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp bread crumbs (toast 1 slice of bread and grind to crust)
1 egg yolk beaten with 1 tsp water for brushing
1 roll of puff pastry (the packages comes with 2)
Mix apples with sugar, flour and cinnamon and leave it to rest for about 1/2 hour. Mix brown sugar with bread crumbs.
Thaw the puff pastry dough. Stretch the dough to a rectangle on a floured board. Put the sugar bread crumb mixture. Then put apples on top of the mixture, don't spread it just lay it so it is easy to roll up the pastry. Then roll and pinch the ends.
I split the pastry into two parts then pinched the ends. Place the pastries in wax paper and brush with beaten egg yolk, then make some slits on top of the pastry to let out steam.
Bake at 375F for 35 to 40 minutes until the pastry is golden brown.
Cool on tray for 20 minutes.
Can also use phyllo pastry instead of puff pastries. Layer phyllo with butter and bread crumbs in between each piece of phyllo like baklava and make as above. Can also add nuts to the mixture.
