Recipe of Apples, Pears in pyjamas
- 2 Apples
- 2 Pears
- 4 Sheets butter puff pastry
- 150 g Soft marzipan
- 1 Handful of raisins or cranberries
- 1 Egg, lightly beaten
- 1 tbsp milk
- Icing sugar, for dusting
- Preheat oven to 180°C.
- Core and peel the apples and pears, leaving the fruit whole and reserving the stems. Stuff the apples and pears with marzipan.
- Cut 4 squares of pastry, large enough to fold around each piece of fruit. Place some raisins or cranberries in the middle of the pastry before placing the fruit on top. Brush the edges of the pastry with combined egg and milk. Lift the corners of the pastry and bring together to enclose the fruit then seal together at the top. Brush with egg wash. Repeat with the remaining fruit, pastry and egg wash. Poke the reserved stems back into the top of the pastry and bake for 30 minutes until golden. Dust with icing sugar.
