3/4 cup butter softened
1 egg, separated
3 Tbs cold water divided
2 cups pastry flour sifted*
7 cups thinly sliced/cored apples
3/4 cup raw sugar
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
In your Bosch bowl, beat cream cheese and butter till smooth. If you use the Bosch bowl scraper, it will enhancer the mixing. Beat egg yolk and 2 Tbs water into cream cheese mixture. Gradually add flour. Shape pastry into a ball and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Cover dough and put in the fridge for one hour.
In large skillet, combine apples, sugar and cinnamon. Cover and cook over low heat till tender for about 8-10 minutes. This is a wonderful time to use your Bosch Slicer/Shredder attachment. You will have the slicing task done in the blink of an eye!
Turn the pastry dough onto a lightly floured surface. Roll 1/8th inch thick; cut into 4" circle; top each circle with apple mixture. Fold pastry over filling and seal well. Brush with water to help seal.
In small bowl, whisk egg white and remaining water; brush over pastry. Sprinkle with sugar.
Bake 375 degrees for 18-22 minutes.
Great when served with vanilla ice cream!! Yum!!
