One thing you should all know is my father in law CAN COOK! he cooks the most amazing and tasty things so its only fair i share them with you. During a family dinner poppy pete released his latest secret recipe, these sweet, caramelized apple dumplings and i instantly fell in love. Serve with warm custard, cream or ice cream.
4 sheets Puff Pastry
1 cup Golden Syrup
4 Granny Smith apples, peeled and quartered
1 Cup Butter
2 Cups Boiling Water
3/4 Cup Caster Sugar
1 Teaspoon Ground Cloves
Preheat oven to 160'c. Grease a baking dish.
In a small bowl combine caster sugar and ground cloves. Coat each piece of apple in the sugar mix. Cut each piece of pastry into 4 equal squares (total of 16 squares). Place one piece of apple diagonally on a square of pastry and wrap over from corner to corner and press together firmly encasing the apple. Place each parcel into a baking dish sealed side down.
Mix Boiling water, butter and golden syrup in a saucepan over a medium heat until dissolved. Pour hot mixture over apple dumplings. Bake in a preheated oven for 45mins or until golden brown.
Note: As dumplings absorb alot of syrup you may want to have extra syrup for serving.
