Units Scale


  1. Let pastry thaw: Thaw one puff pastry sheet according to package directions; about 30-35 minutes.
  2. Make the topping: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. To a small bowl, add the sugar and cinnamon and stir to combine. 
  3. Pastry: Gently roll out the puff pastry with a rolling pin, and add to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Prick the dough with a fork to prevent it from bubbling up during cooking.
  4. Egg: Whisk the egg together and lightly brush it all over the pastry. 
  5. Cinnamon Sugar: Sprinkle most of the cinnamon sugar topping all over the puff pastry. 
  6. Apples: Top with the apples in whatever pattern you desire.
  7. Cinnamon Sugar: Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar topping all over the apples. 
  8. Bake: Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown and puffed up. 
  9. Cut: Remove from the oven and cut into squares. Serve immediately. 
  10. Optional but highly recommended: Drizzle some vegan caramel sauce on top.


  • Apples/Puff Pastry: Use the lines in the pastry as a guide to organize the apples. Be sure to also prick the dough with a fork to prevent it from bubbling up during cooking. (If this step is skipped, the dough puffs up and some of the toppings slide off).
  • Sugar: Feel free to use either cane sugar or coconut sugar. Coconut sugar is unrefined and is the healthier option. However, both work well for this recipe.
  • Cook Time: Cook for less time if you desire less of a crunch. If you want more of a crunch cook for longer.
  • Servings: Makes 6 large servings or 12 smaller servings.
