baked apples in pastry


i would like to thank busymomof3 for this little treasure in sugar free cooking cookbook that she sent me in the recent cookbook swap. tip - for an extra rich pastry, use 1 egg yolk and half the amount of water in this recipe. variation - use pears instead of apples in the recipe. freezing - these apples freeze well after baking and should be thawed and then re-heated before eating.
