1 large cooking apple, chopped into small squares.
Sugar (amount varies)
250g of flour (self-raising or plain)
250g of butter
150ml of water
1 teaspoon of salt
If wanted, you can also add a dash of cinnamon
Combine salt and flour. Chop the butter into small pieces and rub into breadcrumbs.
Create a well in the mixture, pouring the water into it in small amounts and mixing each time. Knead with hands to make a firm dough.
Wrap dough in cling film and rest in fridge for 20 minutes.
Pour hot water in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Add around 4 - 5 teaspoons of sugar to the water and add the apple pieces. Remove and drain when apple becomes soft.
Take dough from fridge and place on lightly floured board. Roll into a small rectangle, then fold the first third down onto the centre. Do the same with the bottom third. Turn the dough 90 degrees either way and roll out lengthways. Fold thirds again and wrap in clingfilm to rest for another 20 minutes in the fridge.
Roll out the dough on a floured board. Cut into four quarters and roll each one into a square. Place some apple onto the corner of each piece and sprinkle with sugar, and cinnamon if you choose to add it.
Fold corner to corner to create a triangle shape. Reform into this shape if necessary and tuck the edges into each other. Place on a greased tray and sprinkle with a little more sugar. Cook until golden brown.
