Apple and Almond Pastries recipe

Marzipan is a European almond paste used in pastries and candies. In this puffed pastry recipe, it makes for a richly sweet and nutty dessert.

Ingredients:

1 pound packaged chilled puffed pastry
1 egg, lightly beaten
6 ounces marzipan
3 red apples
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 tablespoon icing sugar

Directions:

1) Preheat oven to 425°F.

2) Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface. Cut out 6 circles, approximately 3 inches round; place on a damp baking tray. Brush the pastry circles with the beaten egg.

3) Roll out the marzipan; cut out 6 smaller circles; approximately 2 ½ inches round. Pay on top of the pastry circles.

4) Core, and quarter the apples. Slice each quarter into three slices. Arrange apples on the marzipan; brush with melted butter.

5) Bake 15 minutes, until pastry is golden. Remove from oven, sprinkle with sugar, and serve warm or cold.
