We got a small crop of cooking apples this year. They are very tart like Granny Smith Apples and perfect for making pies and pastries.

The original recipe for this dessert comes from the Peppridge Farm Puff Pasty site.

*NOTE* I didn't include the thawing time for the puff pastry in the prep time of this recipe. Generally its 40 minutes, but that might depend on how hot it is in your kitchen.
