From time to time I crave to make some cozy and comforting food. Apple strudels are one of my all-time-favourite sweet treats and these mini versions of them are too good to pass up. Whenever I make them they are gone in no time and they are one of my go-to last-minute bakes that I whip up when we have guests or we are going on a play-date.

We even bring them to the playground sometimes as they are the perfect size for small hands to hold and little tummies to eat.

  • 1 rectangle of rolled out puff pastry (approx. 13oz)
  • 1 big cooking apple (or 2 small ones), cored and diced
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1 tbsp pine nuts
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese
  • Dusting of icing sugar

In a bowl, mix together the diced apple (no need to peel it), raisins, pine nuts and sugar. Set aside.
Cut the rolled rectangle of puff pastry into 6 squares by cutting the length in half and then the height into 3 equal parts. Now with a knife, cut some horizontal lines into one HALF of each square.
Spread a generous spoonful of cream cheese onto the non-cut half of each square, top with 1 tbsp of apple mixture, and then take the cut side and bring it on top of the mixture over to the other side, so you get a little filled rectangle. Seal the edges with a fork by pressing it down like you would for ravioli. That prevents it from opening up during baking.
Bake in a pre-heated, non-fan oven at 390°F for 20-25 minutes.
Sprinkle some icing sugar on top and serve hot or cold.
