  • 2 Sheets of frozen puff pastry

Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

Roll out two sheets of pastry and cut into a rough circle slightly larger than the pan, place the pastry over top of the apples, tucking any extra pasty down the sides and underneath. Repeat with the second sheet. Gently prick the top of the pasty.
