This apple in puff pastry recipe is extra easy. It’s soft apples inside and a crispy crust!

For the apple puff pastry recipe, you need simple ingredients: apples, puff pastry, sugar, egg, and flour. Cinnamon is optional; you can use sugar alone instead. Slice apples into rings. If they’ve got thick skin, peel them off. If they have thin skin, there is no need to peel. Use big apples for this recipe. It will be easier for you to loop puff pastry through apple rings.

Coring the apples is easy—just use a knife. A bottle cap works great, too!

Grab puff pastry from the fridge and roll it out. Sprinkle some flour on it to keep it from sticking to your hands and each other.
Cut the pastry into strips. Thread each strip through the hole in an apple ring. Trust me, you want those holes nice and wide—it’s way easier that way! This is why we recommend big apples for this recipe. The bigger the apple ring and the hole, the easier it is for you to thread puff pastry strips through the holes.

But if you’re in a hurry, try croissants instead. Slice apple rings in half and wrap the pastry around them. Quick and easy!

Pop pastries onto a baking sheet lined with non-stick parchment paper. If you’re running low on parchment, grease the paper with oil.
Mix cinnamon and sugar. Beat the egg. Brush the pastries with the egg and sprinkle them with the cinnamon-sugar mix. If cinnamon is not your thing, just stick with sugar. It’ll give your dessert a nice crispy crust.

And finally, into the oven, they go! Bake them up and get ready to enjoy!
