These little apple pies are made with puff pastry and a homemade apple compote. Fresh apples are diced and cooked over low heat with lemon, cinnamon, vanilla extract and sugar. The pies are then shaped and garnished with the delicious compote.
French apple pies remind me my childhood. My mum used to put some for morning tea, afternoon tea, parties,... Crispy outside with soft apple deliciousness on the inside. It is a classic of French pastries. Even better when you eat it warm! Yum. BON APPÉTIT !
Reheating: Do not defrost. French pies must be cooked in the oven from frozen. Preheat the oven to 200°, bake the pies for 15-20 min at 180° until they are golden and enjoy!
Bonjour I'm Micheline 👩🏻🍳
I come from a family where good food and large family meals are the joy of life. I have unforgettable memories where my mother and sisters, excellent cooks, spent hours concocting magnificent meals! Home cooking brings people together and good food makes you smile! My family upbringing brought me great values and in particular the respect for food, non-waste and the pleasure of the taste buds. Coming from a family where mum cooked different dishes every day, I can thank her for having developed in me the pleasure of cooking. It is so rewarding when you are told that it is so good or when you are asked for another plate!
These are lunchbox friendly although much better when eaten warm.
