  • Flour, for dusting
  • 2 x 320g (11oz) ready-rolled shortcrust pastry sheets
  • 250ml (1 cup) caramel sauce
  • 395g (1 can) apple pie filling

  2. Dust a clean work surface with flour and flatten one sheet of pastry on it.
  3. Spoon the caramel onto the pastry and spread thinly across the whole surface.
  4. Empty the apple pie filling can into a bowl and shop into smaller bits. Spoon the filling onto the caramel pastry and spread into a thin, even layer.
  5. On a dusted work surface flatten the other pastry roll then, using a pastry cutter or a knife, slice all of it into thin ribbons about 1cm (½ in) wide.
  6. Make a lattice, using the pastry ribbons, over the top of the pie.
  7. Using a round cookie cutter, cut out as many cookies as possible.
  8. Transfer the cookies, using a spatula, onto an oiled non-stick baking sheet.
  9. Brush egg wash onto the latticed pastry and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  10. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Enjoy!


  • Cinnamon sugar comprises a ration of 50:50 cinnamon and sugar, which you can make up yourself.
  • You shouldn’t necessarily use all the ingredients, such as a complete jar of caramel sauce or apple pie filling. Play it by ear!
  • The scraps can be baked as well. They might not be as pretty but tastes the same!
