sweet dessert, not tart
heavy whipping cream
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 ovenproof dish for 40 minutes. Serve with whipped cream.
