Baked Apples in Pastry Recipe
Preheat oven to 425 °F or 220 °C.
In a small bowl mix the raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter together with a spoon.
Roll out the pastry into four 8″ (20 cm) rounds.
Peel and core the apples and place each in the centre of a pastry round.
Carefully spoon and pack the filling into each apple.
Bring the pastry up around the apple leaving a small opening at the top – trim any excess pastry so that the pastry will hold its shape while baking.
Place on parchment paper in a baking dish and brush with egg wash.
Bake for 25 – 30 minutes, until pastry is golden-brown and apples are tender. Sprinkle with sugar after removing from the oven.
Serve with English custard or ice cream.
