Tofu Tuesday: Apples and butterscotch

We have an abundance of apples at the moment and with butterscotch still on my to do list this winter, I decided to make apple hand pies with the ridiculously easy butterscotch sauce as featured on Smitten Kitten. It really was easy.

My apple handpies are easy too: Preheat oven to 180°C. Take 1 sheet of frozen puff pastry, thaw and cut in half into 2 rectangles. Peel 1 apple (reserving peel for a lucky bunny) and slice apple into even pieces and arrange on 1 half of each piece of pastry. Sprinkle with half a teaspoon of sugar and a pinch of cinnamon. Fold rectangles over in half and crimp edges with a fork. Poke 2 sets of fork holes in the top of the pies to allow steam out. Brush with milk and bake for 30 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven, cut diagonally into triangles, arrange on a plate and drizzle with butterscotch sauce.

I am Genie, a graphic designer/photographer obsessed with food and bunnies. I live in Whanganui, New Zealand with my husband, The Koala and our two rabbits, Kobe and Bento. I write about my hedonistic ways and I love the mantra "Eat well, travel often". I prefer not to write about myself in third person.


  1. Oh yum!!
    I still have to make croissants according to my list. Who wrote that???
    These look great, G. I think I’ll make some. I’ve only ever done savory triangles, but apple makes sense.
    Looks like Tofu approved of your ingredients too.

    • Tofu goes bananas for apples 🙂

      Croissants. That sounds super hard. I dream of living in France and breakfasting on fresh croissants and cafe au lait.

  2. That bunny of your’s is so adorable; Dustie used to rub her chin on things too. Apparently it is not good to let them eat the core, not sure why not because they would eat far worse things in the wild. Have you given Tofu bananas? All of our bunnies loved bananas.
    The apple pie looks delightful; I made a caramel sauce in the microwave that was very easy too

    • Hi Eva! Tofu isn’t so keen on bananas. It must be the squishy texture. I usually only give Tofu the apple peel. Just a tiny bit of fruit if I’m eating the apple and feel like sharing. He never gets the core…neither do we.

I love your comments! Your comments are like extra melted cheese on top.
