  • juice of half lemon

Directions:

Pull the puff pastry out of the freezer and let it thaw for 45mins to an hour.  Cut the apple in half and core it.  Place the sliced half apple facing down and thinly slice the apples.  Place the apple slices in a bowl of water.  Juice the lemon in the water.  Microwave it for 3 mins so that the apples slices become soft and easily manageable.

Drain the apples and let it cool down a bit.  Once the puff pastry has thawed to be rolled out.  Using a little bit all purpose flour if needed roll out the dough to approx 1/8 of thickness.  Cut them in 6 strips.
