- 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
- 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
- 1¼ pounds tart apples, such as Empire or Granny Smith (3 apples)
- 3 tablespoons dried cherries
- 3 tablespoons sugar, plus extra to sprinkle on top
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- Pinch kosher salt
- 1 package (17.3 ounces, 2 sheets) frozen puff pastry, defrosted
- 1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water, for egg wash
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Combine the orange zest and orange juice in a bowl. Peel, quarter, and core the apples and then cut them in ¾-inch dice. Immediately toss the apples with the zest and juice to prevent them from turning brown. Add the cherries, sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
- Flour a board and lightly roll each sheet of puff pastry to a 12 by 12-inch square. Cut each sheet into 4 smaller squares and keep chilled until ready to use.
- Brush the edges of each square with the egg wash and neatly place about ⅓ cup of the apple mixture on half of the square. Fold the pastry diagonally over the apple mixture and seal by pressing the edges with a fork. Transfer to a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Brush the top with egg wash, sprinkle with sugar, make 2 small slits, and bake for 20 minutes, until browned and puffed. Serve warm or at room temperature.
