These apple pie alternatives were a great hit over here, getting more praise than the original apple pie. They are a lower-fat alternative, with a delicious taste enclosed within a crunchy shell. Serve warm, with custard or ice-cream. For the dried berries I used a mix of cranberries, raisins, sultanas, blueberries and cherries, however simple sultanas will do. 

Serves 2 
  • 2 cooking apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 25g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp ground mixed spice
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • 25g mixed dried berries
  • 2 sheets filo pastry
  • 25g butter, melted

Heat oven to 200 degrees C. Place the apples, sugar, mixed spice, cinnamon and mixed berries in a saucepan with 2 tbsp water and cook for 6 minutes 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 lengthways, then brush lightly with the melted butter. Place a spoonful of the apple filling at the top of each strip, then fold over and over to form triangular parcels. Place on a baking sheet, brush with the melted butter, and bake for 15-20 minutes until crisp and golden.
