Ingredients

 

    • 2 cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced

 

    • 2 tbsp runny honey

 

    • 2 tsp lemon juice

 

    • ½ tsp ground mixed spice

 

    • 2 tbsp sultanas

 

    • 1 can croissant dough

 

For the icing:

    • 60g (2oz) golden icing sugar

 

    • 1 tsp runny honey

 

    • Baking sheet, lined with baking parchment

 

 

Method

 

 

    1. Put the apple, honey, lemon juice, spice and sultanas into a bowl. Microwave on High for 4-5 mins, until the fruit is tender. Alternatively heat them gently in a pan, to soften. Cool.

 

    1. Set the oven to Gas Mark 6 or 200°C. Open the can and unroll the croissant dough. Cut through the perforations to separate it into triangles.

 

    1. Spoon a tsp of apple mixture on to each triangle and spread it over. Roll up to create a crescent shape and put on the baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 mins until golden brown.

 

    1. To make the icing: Sieve the icing sugar into a bowl and mix in the honey and 2 tsp hot water. Drizzle the icing over the cooling croissants.
