Ingredients You'll Need

oz total
1/3 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
2 T. flour
1 t. grated lemon peel
1 t. fresh lemon juice
1 t. ground cinnamon
1/2 t. grated nutmeg
1 large egg, lightly beaten
Whipped cream (optional)


Thaw frozen pastry as pkg. directs. Meanwhile, peel, core and

coarsely chop

apples to measure about 2 cups. In bowl, toss apples with sugar,


lemon peel and juice, cinnamon and nutmeg. Heat oven to 375. On


floured surface, cut each pastry sheet into 9 squares (3 x 3"

each). In

center of each of 9 squares, put scant 1/4 cup apple mixture.

squares with beaten eggs. Top each filled pastry square with

second square,
