Ingredients

  • 2 cooking apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp ground mixed spice
  • 50g sultanas
  • 4 sheets filo pastry
  • 25g low-fat spread (we used Flora Light), melted

Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Place the apples, sugar, mixed spice and sultanas in a saucepan with 2 tbsp water and cook, covered, for 6 mins or until the apples are soft, stirring once or twice. Tip into a shallow dish and spread out to cool slightly.

  2. Cut the sheets of filo in thirds lengthways, then brush lightly with the melted spread. Place a spoonful of the apple filling at the top of each strip, then fold over and over to form triangular parcels. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 mins until crisp and golden. Serve with low-fat yogurt, if you like.

My family really enjoyed these with custard. So easy and fun to make.

Made these today, absolutely gorgeous, I did use half a teaspoon of cinnamon instead of mixed spice. Thank you so much for posting this recipe, will definitely be made many times more.

I've made these with puff and filo pastry and both work a treat, though the latter was more fiddly but my dad and I had fun rolling and perfecting the triangles! (Dessert apples work great too and less sugar)

Easy to make. I had 2 massive bramley apples so did the other ingredients 1.5 x the quantity. On its own, it was quite sour, but was ok with ice cream. I used 6 filo sheets as well and still had left filling

just tried to make these. not sure what i did wrong. i could not get the triangle shape and i think the apples should have been cut smaller, but it doesnt say how small to cut the apples.
will be hopefully making them again

Definitely the calories are per samosa-the sugar in the ingredients list is 200kcals alone :-)

Making these this afternoon, so fingers crossed they turn out well!

I did these once and they were really good ... what I would like to know is, is it 196 calories per samosa or 196 calories per serving i.e. 4 samosas?

Delicious!! Really easy to make and looked great. Brushed some of the leftover melted butter on them when they were made and sprinkled a little sugar on top. Perfect!

these taste incredible. I found that it was easier and nicer to make them into bigger rectangles, making four from one roll of pastry.i also ended up using puff pastry which made them much doughier but with a crisp bottom. They are perfect with a ball of vanilla ice-cream and evryone in the aily lovess them! i did find that there was to much sugar so i use half the amount and occasionally even less.
ENJOY!

am looking forward to making these, epecially as i know we have some pastry that needs to be used up in the freezer!

Funny, did you know that the sugar and filo pastry are the most 'fattening' things in this recipe. Refined sugar and flour are assimilated in the body and excess is turned into body fat. There really is no other use.

Whereas Butter contains fat soluble vitamin A, C, E and K. So healthy and extremely tasty. A better version of this would be using rapadura sugar (nutrients in tacked) and sprouted flour (whole wheat) pastry.

mmm lovely, quick and easy to make.

wendybull. There is an excellent diagram instruction for making triangles in the Fontana book "Greek Food" by Rena Salaman, page175.

I make them in every possible size, from a tiny single bite to a large lunch-sized knife and fork job, just by varying the width of the strip and the size of the filling dollop . I've often done it for a Classics Fair feast with a class of nine-year-olds, and they soon get the hang of it, producing trays of goodies. It is a lovely way to occupy kids for an afternoon. And you can experiment with all sorts of fillings, sweet and savoury.

Greate recipe! Will try this samosas again!

hchagmark's picture

I think I will try without raisins and add almonds or nuts instead, and cinnamon. Last Christmasi did these with mincemeat and that was fab.

Can these be frozen?

ajctracey's picture

Any recipes out there for gluten-free filo pastry? Or is this a technical impossibility?

kerriannecox's picture

Ca this be made as a pie rather than samosa?

lawrance's picture

At what point can these be frozen? Before or after cooking?

goodfoodteam's picture

Hi there, thanks for your question. Freeze these before baking once they have been assembled.
