This gets excellent Amazon reviews, and will make light work of peeling and slicing your apples and potatoes. It's fun to use and kids end up eating more apples! That must be good! What a nice Christmas gift!


This is one of those super easy apple recipes, so delicious and very quick to make. It would be a great Thanksgiving or Christmas day breakfast or snack at the end of the day. I call them apple filled croissants.

They look big in the picture but they are only the size of an apple segment so they are very cute!

The UK loves apples and baking lots of different things with them, and luckily for all of us, it’s been a bumper year for apples here in the UK.

This is a relief because last year our trees were almost bare. When we went to our usual haunts to pick some last September, there were none on the trees! That was such a disappointment because we love to pick apples that no body else wants and bake pies with them - stuffed with blackberries - we're not sure why but they taste so much better when their not bought in a supermarket!

This year however there have been so many we have had to store them in our shed! I’ve become a bit of an expert on finding and making deserts and snacks using apple recipes.

This is one of those apple recipes that is so easy it makes me smile!! I love teaching children to make them because there really is nothing to it!

To keep things super easy I cheat by using frozen pastry but if you want to make your own pastry then great too!

You can use either short crust or puff pastry, I've tried both, and they both work just as well.

I haven’t made this recipe up myself but my son and I have great ideas on how to jazz these dear little croissants up.

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: 8


  • 1 packet of frozen pastry. Puff or shortcrust
  • Brown sugar - enough to put inside and sprinkle on top
  • A little warm water
  • 3 Bramble or Granny Smith apples


  1. Defrost your pastry. Preheat oven 350 F
  2. Peel, core and cut you apples into segments
  3. Roll out the pastry till it's about half a centimeter thick and long
  4. Line an oven baking tray with greaseproof paper
  5. Cut long triangles (isosceles) wide enough at one end to fit an apple slice
  6. Place the apple on the widest end of the pasty
  7. Sprinkle on a little sugar. Here's where you can add things like peanut butter or jam, mincemeat, or anything else you like - smear them on to the pastry with a knife
  8. Paint water round the edges of the pastry so that it sticks and seals.
  9. Take the widest part of the pastry and roll in towards the apple. Cover the apple slice, the smallest part will be on the top, just like a croissant. Seal the ends by pressing them together to prevent the juices from escaping.
  10. Paint some milk on top and sprinkle a little sugar on top.
  11. Place in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until they are nice and tanned

This apple peeler is very easy to clean and faster the one above. I think it looks a bit more funky too! It would suit a modern style kitchen. I don't think that this peels potatoes too though. The peeler gets hundreds of 4 and 5 stars.


Here's a link to another one of my very easy apple recipes Baked Apples with Delicious Fruit Mincemeat This is so simple to make and absolutely delicious! It's a perfect winter treat, perfect if you have nice large apples.

Have you ever made these apple croissants before? Do you have any suggestions for variations on this recipe e.g. use a different fruit? I think a bit of peanut butter or blackberry jam, chocolate spread - put in with the apple could work. Please do leave a comment.

Thank you for visiting.

      @RaintreeAnnie: They're very little. Each one is the size of an apple slice. They're more like mini apple pies than croissants, but they certainly are delicious for breakfast - they're great because they can be cooked from frozen. Hope you enjoy them. Thanks for your visit.
