Deconstructed Apple Pie


  • Prep Time : 15 minutes min
  • Cook Time : 28 minutes min
  • Ready Time : 43 min


4 s


  • 4 granny smith apples, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 tablespoons candied ginger, coarsely chopped
  • 13 ounces frozen puff pastry, defrosted
  • 1 egg, beaten with 1 teaspoon water



  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. In a large sauce pan over medium high heat, sauté apples in olive oil, stirring occasionally. Sauté 5 to 8 minutes or until slightly softened but not mushy. Stir in lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger and cook 1 minute more. Evenly distribute filling between 4 1-cup capacity ramekins.
  3. Roll out puff pastry to about 1/8-inch thick on a lightly floured surface. Use a bowl slightly large than the size of your ramekins to cut out 4 large circles. Brush the edges of each circle with egg wash and put on top of ramekins. Lightly press down to seal edges to ramekin and cut a small slit in the top to let steam out.
  4. Bake 14 to 18 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

    This was both easy to make and absolutely delicious. A very fun twist on the classic apple pie! I like my apple pie extra sweet, so I added a little extra sugar since we used fresh apples (and not the canned apple pie filling that is already loaded with sugar). Great recipe!

    this looks delicious and easy!

  3. everyone who saw this on my FB wanted to make it = even works on peseach – make a top of sweet matza farfel…

  4. I have to watch my diabetic daughter’s diet very closely. This fits the bill for the “goodie” side. I omit the crust (due to carbs) and this is still delicious.

    Where can you buy candied ginger?

    Do you have a recipe for sweet farfel topping?

    • You can get candied ginger in many stores, often by the dried fruit, I have found it at Trader Joe’s. I don’t have a recipe for sweet farfel topping, but I just posted a Passover apple crisp using nuts if that helps.
