Apple Pie Samosas

I had some filo pastry in the freezer and wanted to somehow turn it into something applie pie-ish for 4th July celebrations. This recipe was adapted from BBC Good Food. Please note this recipe is only gluten free if you use gluten free filo pastry. I used regular as I knew I wasn't going to be eating any :)
They were a big hit!


Apple Pie Samosas

Ingredients

2 cooking apples, peeled, cored and chopped
50g vegan caster sugar
1 tsp ground mixed spice
50g sultanas
4 sheets filo pastry
25g vegan butter, melted


Method

Heat oven to 200C/400F fan/gas 6.
Place the apples, sugar, mixed spice and sultanas in a saucepan with 2 tbsp water and cook on a medium heat, covered, for 6 mins or until the apples are soft, stirring once or twice.
Tip into a shallow dish and spread out to cool slightly.
Cut the sheets of filo in thirds length ways, then brush lightly with the melted spread.
Place a spoonful of the apple filling at the top of each strip, then fold over and over to form triangular parcels.

Brush on top with melted butter.

Place on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 mins until crisp and golden.


If you are planning on making these in advance and cooking them later make sure you cover with a damp tea towel to prevent the pastry drying out.
