Apple in Puff Pastry Braid

Para versão Portuguesa clique aqui: Trança de Maçã Folhada

3 cups apples cut in small cubes
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ tsp cinnamon
1 nut butter
2 tbsp flour
1 round sheet of puff pastry
Milk for brushing
Sugar for sprinkling

Place the apple, sugar, cinnamon and butter in a small pan over medium heat for about 5 minutes, just to soften the apples. Remove from heat. Sprinkle flour over the apples and mix well. Pre-heat oven to 190ºC. 

Spread the puff pastry and place apple mixture in the middle in a rectangular shape. Using a sharp knife, cut the sides of the pastry into strips in equal number on both sides. Beginning from the tips, fold the pastry over the apple mixture. Then, taking one strip at a time, give it a twist and place it over to the other side. 

Continue with the other strips overlapping them to make a braid. Brush braid with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Place in the oven for 20 minutes or until golden and crispy.
