Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Grease a baking tray.
On a floured surface, roll out the puff pastry to a 5mm thickness then cut into eight 15cm squares. Set aside.
In a saucepan over a medium heat, combine the apples, half of the caster sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cook for 10 to 12 minutes until the apples begin to soften then mash and add the remainder of the sugar. Bring to the boil and stir for 5 to 8 minutes until the sauce thickens.
Divide the mixture evenly between the squares (about 1 1/2 heaped tablespoons per square), laying the apple mixture in one half of the square. Fold the pastry over from one corner to another to make a triangle and press the edges together to seal. Score a small steam hole in the top then brush with milk. Arrange on the prepared baking tray.
Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes until the pastry is golden brown and the filling is piping hot. Remove from the oven and serve.
