1. Lay out puff pastry on a lightly floured surface. With a rolling pin, spread out puff pastry to make a sheet measuring roughly 9x14 inches. Using the round top of a saucepan (ideally 7-8 inches in diameter), cut 2 circles of pastry out of each sheet

For the Assembly

  1. Place apples in the center of the puff pastry circles, add the apple pieces on the bottom of the apple cup and then the almond paste filling over the top. Sprinkle some granulated almonds over the top of the filling.
  2. Apply a light wash of the egg white to the rim of the pastry and fold toward the center over the apple, making sure to bring together the edges. Use your hands to shape the dumpling. Use the scraps of the puff pastry to make a braid and a bow, to decorate each dumpling.
  3. Once shaped apply a light coat of egg white wash over the entire 4 dumplings. With a paring knife cut a vent at the top of the dumpling.
  4. Bake for 18-22 minutes in a preheated oven at 400 degrees (200C) or until the pastry is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
  5. Serve hot with Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
