Puff pastry apple pies

Aromatic apples in a tasty puff pastry. This recipe was created when I had a craving for a cool pie from McDonalds, and since I avoid eating there, I decided to make them at home. It's very simple, somewhat healthier, and sooo good.

Allergens: gluten | Preparation time: 1 h | Portions: 8 | Complexity: easy


  • 5 big green apples

  • 2 packs of store-bought puff pastry

  • 1 tsp coconut oil

  • 50 g brown sugar

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 tbsp maple or agave syrup

  • 2 tbsp plant milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

  2. Remove the pits from the apples. The skin can be left on. Cut them into very small pieces.

  3. Melt coconut oil in a saucepan and add apples, sugar and cinnamon. Simmer until all the liquid has evaporated and the apples are soft - about 25 minutes, stirring frequently. When it's ready, remove from the heat and let it cool down for a while.

  4. Roll out the dough and cut each sheet into 8 pieces (or 10). Spread the apples on half pieces (leave a little space along the edge), and cover the filled pieces with the other half of the dough pieces.

  5. Connect the edges with a fork so that the filling does not fall out. Make small cuts at the top of each pie and coat it with a mixture of maple syrup and plant milk.

  6. Bake for 25 minutes.

  7. Let cool a little bit before eating, as the filling will be very hot. Serve alone or with vanilla ice cream for a completely hedonistic pleasure.


I bought vegan pre-made, rolled puff pastry in Lidl - their brand Chef Select.
