Apple Pie

Let's welcome the New Year with good old Apple Pie and a new look for 2013!  Hopefully this year will be full of good surprises just like the apple pie with its flavorful spices and softness in the inside and crispiness on the outside.. in the end, a very satisfying bite!
4 extra large green apples, cored and diced
1 cup raisins
1 lemon, zest and juice
1/2 cup brown sugar (add more to suit your taste)
30g butter
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 packet of frozen ready-rolled pastry puff (6 pieces in a pack)
1 egg, for the egg wash

Mix all together and cook over medium heat till half soft.  Take off heat and let cool.

Dust cutting board with some flour so that the pastry will not stick on the board and cut pastry puff into 4 squares.  
Place a spoonful of apple filling into the center and fold over. Using a fork, seal the sides. Transfer to a baking tray with parchment paper.
Brush egg wash all over and bake in pre-heated oven at 190dC for 20 mins or until golden.

My kids are already grunting about going back to school tomorrow.. and I follow suit! sigh!  Vacation's over!

Have a great year ahead, everyone!
