Title: Apple Duff
Yield: 4 Servings
Categories: Irish, Classic


4 Dessert apples
2 oz Brown sugar
2 oz Raisins
Cinnamon to taste
1 Beaten egg
1/2 pt Cream, whipped
1 pk Puff pastry (12 oz)

(Inspired by James Joyce's "Ulysses")

Preheat the oven to 400'F. Peel and core the apples. Stuff the centers
with a mixture of brown sugar, raisins and cinnamon. Roll out the
pastry and cut out 4 circles approximately 8" in diameter, depending
on the size of the apples. Place an apple in the center of the pastry
circle and brush the edge with beaten egg; draw up the pastry to
enfold the apple, pressing the edges firmly to seal. Brush the tops
of the pastry parcels with the remaining egg to glaze. Bake in a
shallow ovenproof dish for 40 minutes. Serve with whipped cream.
