- 2 sheets of puff pastry, thawed
- 2 large apples, peeled and chopped
- 3 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tsp apple pie spice, separated
- pinch of salt
- 6 ounces Sharp White Cheddar, cut into pieces
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 1 tbsp coarse raw sugar
- Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. In a large bowl, toss chopped apples, brown sugar, 1 tsp apple pie spice, and salt. Add to saucepan with melted butter and cook until the apples begin to soften, stirring often, for 5 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
- Line your workspace with a sheet of parchment paper. Place one sheet of thawed puff pastry on top. Add a few pieces of Cheddar onto puff pastry, spoon apple mixture onto the pieces of cheddar, then top with more Cheddar. The amount may vary based on the size of your pastries, just make sure to leave at least one inch of room in between mounds.
- Cover with the second sheet of puff pastry. Using a large knife or pizza cutter, cut in between the mounds of apple and Cheddar. Separate, and press the edges closed with a fork.
- Beat one large egg and brush on top of the pastries. Mix raw sugar and 1 teaspoon of apple pie spice and sprinkle on top. Bake until golden brown, about 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool slightly and serve.
