Cooking Instructions:

Prepare the Apples:

Start by peeling and coring the apples.

Cut them into thin slices and place them in a pot with 100 ml of water.

Bring the water to a boil and let the apples simmer for about 20 minutes.

This will soften the apples and bring out their natural sweetness.

Prepare the Puff Pastry:

Preheat your oven to 180°C (356°F).

Roll out the puff pastry on a floured surface to ensure it doesn’t stick.

Cut the pastry into even squares or rectangles, depending on your preference.

These will form the base of your dessert.

Assemble the Pastries:

Once the apples are cooked, drain any excess water.

Place a portion of the apple slices in the center of each puff pastry square.

Add a few strawberry halves and some chopped chocolate pieces on top of the apples.

This combination of fruits and chocolate will create a wonderful blend of flavors.

Prepare the Egg Wash:

In a small bowl, beat the egg with a splash of water.

Brush the edges of the puff pastry squares with the egg wash.

This will give the pastry a beautiful golden-brown color when baked.

Bake the Pastries:

Carefully fold the puff pastry squares over the fruit and chocolate filling, sealing the edges with a fork.

Place the pastries on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, or until the pastry is puffed up and golden brown.

Prepare the Vanilla Cream:

While the pastries are baking, prepare a simple vanilla cream to drizzle over the top.

In a small saucepan, heat 150 ml of milk over medium heat.

Add the sugar and vanilla essence, stirring until the sugar is dissolved.

Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
