Its been a long time since I have penned down a recipe. And today I decided to do something about it. As always, it is quick and easy, as well as sweet. I had nothing to do in the afternoon and taking a nap did not appeal me. So I tried out something that was on my mind for quite sometime - Apple pie. The usual apple pies are full of butter and lots of white flour, definitely not my kind of wholesome food, other than the apples. My version tastes as good as the real thing, with minimal butter and flour.

Pie in a Pocket (Recipe) :
Makes 6 pockets.


3 tbsp. sugar
1 cinnamon stick 1"
1 tsp. cinnamon powder
2 tsp. unsalted butter
1 tsp. lemon juice 
1 tbsp. corn flour
6 spring roll pastry sheets approx. 8.5" 
1 sheet grease proof paper

Method :
1. Peel and core the apples, quarter and slice them.
2. In a pan place the apples, 2tbsp. sugar, cinnamon stick,1 tsp. butter and lemon juice.
    Heat on a low flame until done (there will be some liquid remaining). Add the corn flour  
    and mix well. Remove the cinnamon stick and set aside.
3. Preheat the oven at 200 degrees Celsius.
4. Grease the pastry sheets with a little butter and place a tbsp of cooked apple mixture 
     near one corner of the sheet. Fold it over and tuck in the sides, and roll the pastry like 
    a spring roll, but not too tight. Repeat the same to make 6 pockets. Grease the top of 
    each pocket.

5. Mix the remaining 1tbsp. sugar with cinnamon powder, and sprinkle on top of the 
6. Place greaseproof paper in a baking tray, slightly oil  and arrange the apple pockets on     the tray. Bake for 10-15 mins or until golden. 
7. Serve warm ...Yumm!!!
Enjoy the lighter version of apple pie, I am sure you will like it.
