Apple and Strawberry Pocket | Parcel Recipe

Its full on apple season in the UK, and with no surprises apples are blooming at peak in September across many households, thanks to good UK weather and that it is common to find apple tree in backyard of many British homes.

I have only managed to plant an apple tree this year in my garden (and hoping that the tree will flourish over years to give good yield), however one of my good friend, Renu, who has got a mature apple tree. We were visiting her place recently and her mother-in-law (Gulshan Aunty), gave us a good supply of apples. Now that I had those few kgs of apples sitting with me, I was left with scratching head to figure out how to best use these apples.

We were having family breakfast few days back eating croissants (and these basket full of apples which Renu gave, was kept on the dinning table), then my daughter asked, why don’t I use apple and make something like croissants? “Thank you, Aadya“, I said, she gave me great idea to get these Apple based parcels. I was little reluctant to have apples on its own, and that I know my family loves strawberries, I have used apples and strawberries as filling in my apple based pockets, however, I will encourage you to try out other fillings too (may be pears or apricots or anything which may suit your tastebuds).

As much as I want my food to be tasty, aim is also that it should be loved by all genres, from kids to adults, lest to forget that food needs to be not too cumbersome to make too (I agree some food requires detailed preparation, but not all).

So here is my simple recipe of apple & strawberry pockets (you may call these parcels), which is largely easy to make (it required oven, as these pockets are oven baked), and is ready in about 30mins.
