1. Puff pastry shell
You can use ready-made puff pastry or can make it by yourself with instruction below: 

  • Cut cold unsalted butter into cube and add to mixing bowl with 25 gr all purpose flour
  • Use whisking machine or fingers to knead and combine quickly butter with flour. If the butter melt while processing, add some drops of cold water or place the mixing bowl in freezer for 5 minutes for cooling butter.
  • Transfer the butter onto tray that lined parchment paper or plastic wrap. Shape it into square or rectangle form, then wrap up and place in freezer for 20 minutes
  • In another bowl, add 100 gr all purpose flour, sugar and salt. Use a spoon to mix the ingredients.
  • Create a hole in dry ingredient bowl, pour into 45 ml water with ½ tsp lime juice and mix with mixer or by hand
  • Knead and mix the dough in 1-2 minutes until the ingredient all combined
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place in fridge for 10 minutes
  • Cover a thin layer of flour on baking mat and rolling pin. Flatten the dough into rectangle sheet (thickness around 0.4-0.5 cm)
  • Place the butter onto the flattened dough and wrap it up. Seal the edges.
  • Flatten the butter-dough and fold the top third down to the centre, then fold two thirds down and rotate the dough 90 degree. 
  • Repeat step 10 five times (six times in total, includes the first fold). And your puff pastry is completed.

2. Apple fillings

  • Wash and soak apples in salt water to remove any chemical residues. Then drain.

  • Cover cutting board or baking mat a thin layer of flour
  • Cut puff pastry into strips (20×3 cm) and flatten.
  • Brush a thin layer of apple jam (or your favorite jam) on the strips
