- 2 x 235g ready roll croissant dough
- 1 egg, beaten
- Plain flour, for dusting
- Vegetable oil for greasing
- 3 large apples (we used Gala apples)
- 50g raisins
- 3 tablespoons Pure Maple Syrup, Amber Rich
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Juice of 1/2 a lemon
- Preheat the oven to 180C or 160C for fan oven. Take a 12 hole muffin tin and lightly grease with vegetable oil.
- Start with making the filling first. Fill a medium bowl with water and the juice of 1/2 a lemon. Peel the apples and cut them into smallish chunks, about 1 cm. Then place them into the bowl of water and lemon while cutting the rest.
- Place the cut apple in a medium size sauce pan with the raisins and a little water. Put on a medium heat and cook with the lid on. When the apples start to soften up, add the maple syrup. In about 10 minutes, the apples should be soft enough to mash up with a fork. Add the cinnamon and allow to cool.
- Meanwhile unroll the croissant dough onto a piece of floured greaseproof paper. Keep the dough whole and spread half of the cooled maple and apple mixture on the dough and roll it up again.
