    (2 sheets frozen puff pastry, just thawed) into 5mm-wide strips. Arrange half the strips, side-by-side, across the paper. Arrange remaining strips side-by-side in the opposite direction, weaving to create a lattice pattern. (You should end up with a lattice square approximately 30 x 30cm). Cut lattice square into 4 squares (approximately 15 x 15cm).

  • Step 2

    Preheat oven to 220C/200C fan forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper.

  • Step 3

    Use a melon baller to scoop out core of each apple (4 small Granny Smith apples, peeled) (do not to scoop all the way through).

  • Step 4

    Combine sugar (70g (1/3 cup) caster sugar) and cinnamon (1 tsp ground cinnamon) in a small bowl. Add apples and toss until combined.

  • Step 5

    Place 1 lattice square over the top of an apple, gently pulling the 4 corners of the pastry together underneath to join. Use your hands to mould the pastry around the apple. Make a small hole in the pastry at the top of the apple. Repeat with remaining pastry and apples.

  • Step 6

    Transfer apples to prepared tray. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until pastry is light golden. Fill each apple with custard (60ml (1/4 cup) thick vanilla custard, plus extra, to serve) and bake for a further 5-10 minutes or until pastry is golden.

  • Step 7

    Serve with extra custard.
