Today we will dedicate ourselves to a classic recipe from abroad: Appelflappen from Holland!
These are apple pockets in puff pastry. And once again it’s really super fast, it’s easy and tastes very delicious…uh tasty. Since I don’t get my beloved apple strudel so easily here in the Netherlands, Appelflappen from Holland serve as a good substitute.
What you need:
Here goes the fun:
Defrost the puff pastry and preheat the oven to 200°.
Then peel and core the apples and cut them into pieces. Then mix the apple pieces with the raisins, the cinnamon and half of the sugar in a bowl.
Now place some of this wonderful mixture on each slice of puff pastry. So much that you can close the dough diagonally afterwards.
Now you have a little triangular dumpling. Then wet the edges with your fingers and squeeze them with a fork.
Now you can put the Appelflappen on a baking sheet with baking paper and push them into the oven. In 15 to 20 minutes the whole thing will be ready. You can also serve it super with vanilla ice cream or eat the Appelflappen practically out of your hand.
Have fun and Eet smakelijk !!!

The darker the raisin the sweeter
