Easy Peasy fruity palm pies recipe

Hey guys.

So today I have the easiest recipe so far, and I’m all about the easy when it comes to cooking.

These are a lovely little treat for kids and adults, they’re cheap, quick and easy ( as usual ) they taste great cold, which makes them portable, or warmed up with a little cream as a more substantial pud.

 

You could get the kids in on this one, but please take care by the oven and with the filling as it is extremely hot.

 

What you need:

1 packet Pre-bought pastry ( any will work )

4 Apples – any –  ( peeled, cored and diced )

100g Raisins

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

1 1/2 tble spn  Maple syrup

1 egg

Icing sugar to decorate

 

What you do:

Pre-heat your oven to 180* fan.

Add the chopped apples, raisins and cinnamon to a saucepan with a little splash of cold water, heat on low to medium until the apples are soft but still hold their shape and stir in the maple syrup, cook for another 2 minutes and then take off heat and allow to cool while you prepare the pastry.

On a floured surface, roll out your preferred pastry ( or unroll if using ready rolled ), and using a large round pastry cutter, cut out your desired number of circles, *you will need an even number, as you need tops and bottoms, mine made 20 circles = 10 palm pies.

On a floured or parchment lined baking sheet, lay out your ‘bottoms’, put a dollop ( yes that’s a precise baking measurement ) of your cooled mixture onto the centre, then brush a little beaten egg around the outside and place the ‘tops’ on. Once the top, filling and bottoms are assembled, use a fork to press down all around the outside, sealing the filling inside, pierce a small hole in the top and then brush a little of the beaten egg over the surface of the pie.

Cook for approx 15 minutes, until golden, keep an eye on them as ovens vary considerably.

 

Allow to cool and dust with a little icing sugar ( optional ) before eating.

 

* Be sure to check the temperature of the pies by cutting open, before giving to children or wait until completely cooled, the contents will burn if too hot.

These are such a handy little treat and you can use a variety of fillings like jam or mincemeat to make a festive ‘mince pie’ version.
