Spiralized apple filo pastry is the perfect easy budget dessert. Taking less than 30 minutes to make and suitable hot or cold this is a fantastic tasty treat!
This spiralized apple filo pastry was conjured up by thinking of how to make a really simple, cheap festive dessert.
Here’s what I came up with but it’s also a dessert that is suitable for all year round.
Plus, it is delicious cold too. Kind of like a Danish pastry, you know?
Simple Spiralized Apple Filo Pastry
There’s no need to spend ages in the kitchen laboriously making puff pastry here either (unless you want to!).
Just buy the lowest fat version of puff pastry you can get.
Then, use spiralized granny smith apples as their sweetness means only having to add the smallest amount of sugar to the recipe to have the right balance of sweet and savory.
The combination of the drizzled sugar syrup with the cinnamon adds the perfect seasonal touch, not to mention those delicious festive aromas in your kitchen whilst it’s baking!
Serve with some vanilla ice cream or creme fraiche if served hot or eat as it is if served cold.
Who would have thought a spiralizer is so versatile that you can actually make a dessert recipe from it too?
It was last Christmas that I got my spiralizer and since I published my first spiralizer recipe, the Spiralized Courgette Spaghetti with Chickpeas, I’ve been loving it!
Why I Recommend Getting A Spiralizer
If you need a little more persuasion as to the reasons for getting a spiralizer, here’s just some of the many benefits :-
- Use a spiralizer to make veggie noddles which means you’re consuming fewer calories and carbs.
- Veggie noddles help to get more vegetables into your diet (more towards your 5 a-day and into kids diets too!)
- You’ll save money because veggies and fruits are often cheaper than meat.
- Spiralizing suits ALL kinds of lifestyles (80/20, vegetarian, vegan, paleo, low-carb, and gluten-free).
- It’s quick and easy – spiralized foods cook quickly and don’t require the chopping / prep other foods do!
Check out my spiralizer recipes for inspiration on what you could make with your spiralizer.
- 4 granny smith apples
- 1 x 320g light puff pastry sheet
- Juice of one fresh lemon
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tbsp butter
- Pinch cinnamon
- Pre-heat oven to 200C Fan
- Spiralize the apples, pour the lemon juice into a large bowl and combine the apples and lemon juice together.
- Roll out the puff pastry sheet and place on a greased baking tray.
- Sprinkle 1 tbsp. of the brown sugar evenly over the pastry sheet.
- Spread the spiralized apples evenly over the puff pastry sheet making sure that any excess drops of lemon juice as shaken off the apples first.
- Gently heat the butter in a small saucepan. Add the remaining tbsp. brown sugar and simmer gently to create a caramel coloured syrup.
- Drizzle the syrup over the spiralized apples and then place the tray in the oven.
- Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the apples are coloured but not burnt and the pastry has risen and is a light golden brown.
- Remove from over, place onto a wooden board, cut into squares or slices and serve with plain vanilla ice cream or creme fraiche.
The cooked slices can also be served cold, they’re kind of like a Danish pastry!
