|4||large||apples||sweet dessert, not tart*|
|1||x||cinnamon, ground||to taste*|

Preheat the oven to 400℉ (200℃).
Peel and core the apples. Stuff the centers with a mixture of brown sugar, raisins and cinnamon.
Roll out the pastry and cut out 4 circles approximately 8 inches in diameter, depending on the size of the apples.
Place an apple in the center of the pastry circle and brush the edge with beaten egg; draw up the pastry to enfold the apple, pressing the edges firmly to seal.
Brush the tops of the pastry parcels with the remaining egg to glaze.
Bake in a shallow oven proof dish for 40 minutes.
Serve with whipped cream.
