  • 350 g/12oz puff pastry
  • 4 eating apples
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 4 tbsp golden granulated sugar
  • 25 g/1oz unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp Scottish runny heather honey


  • Preheat oven to 220C/425F and line a baking tray
  • Zest the lemon and squeeze out the juice, keep juice and zest in a bowl ready to dip the apple
  • Peel and core the apples and cut into quarters and thinly slice evenly and roll in the lemon juice and zest
  • Roll out the puff pastry on floured surface to about 2mm thick and cut into 4 circles approx 15cm diameter (I used an upturned soup bowls guide)
  • Place rounds on prepared baking tray well apart
  • Add the apple slices to create circles on each pie, the apples should overlap each other
  • Sprinkle with the sugar and dot with butter
  • Bake for approx 15-20 mins till puffed and golden
  • Serve warm from the oven with a drizzle of honey for a lovely glaze
