Woman's Weekly recipe These pastries are made using ready-made croissant dough. Quick and simple, filled with apple, sultanas, honey and spice, like traditional Danish pastries. Great for breakfast or a tea time treat


  • 2 cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 2 tbsp runny honey
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp ground mixed spice
  • 2 tbsp sultanas
  • 1 can croissant dough
For the icing:
  • 60g (2oz) golden icing sugar
  • 1 tsp runny honey
  • Baking sheet, lined with baking parchment

You'll find the canned croissant dough in the supermarket chiller cabinet


  1. Put the apple, honey, lemon juice, spice and sultanas into a bowl. Microwave on High for 4-5 mins, until the fruit is tender. Alternatively heat them gently in a pan, to soften. Cool.
  2. Set the oven to Gas Mark 6 or 200°C. Open the can and unroll the croissant dough. Cut through the perforations to separate it into triangles.
  3. Spoon a tsp of apple mixture on to each triangle and spread it over. Roll up to create a crescent shape and put on the baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 mins until golden brown.
  4. To make the icing: Sieve the icing sugar into a bowl and mix in the honey and 2 tsp hot water. Drizzle the icing over the cooling croissants.
