Cinnamon Apple Munchies

This recipe is inspired by one from the Dr. Oetker cookbook "Pl├Ątzchen von A-Z". As apples and cinnamon are one of the best flavor combinations ever created in this whole wide world, I decided to change the filling to this one rather than using the original one from the recipe. And to be honest I don`t regret this choice. These munchies were so lush and flavorful, I`m still dreaming of them.

Ingredients (for about 12 to 15 munchies):
  • 250g white wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 20g vanillin sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 125g butter
  • 1 1/2 apples, washed, peeled and cut into little pieces
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, grounded
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • sesame seeds 
  • 1 pastry wheel
  • mix flour, baking powder, vanillin sugar, egg, milk and butter together in a bowl using a mixer or hand mixer. Put in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  • preheat the oven at 160° Celsius.
  • add apple pieces, cinnamon and 1 tablespoon of water to a pan. Heat the pan and let simmer on middle temperature for 10 minutes. The apple pieces should be soft but not mushy. 
  • take your dough out of the fridge, sprinkle a little bit of flour onto an even surface and roll out the dough. Cut the dough into little squares (approximately 5x8cm) using a pastry wheel.
  • put 1 teaspoon of the apple cinnamon filling on the middle of your dough squares, then fold them. Squeeze the borders with a fork. 
  • mix 1 tablespoon of water and the egg yolk in a bowl. Brush the top of your squares with the mixture.
  • Sprinkle over some sesame seeds and a little bit of grounded cinnamon
  • lay out baking paper on a baking sheet and put your munchies on the sheet. bake for ten minutes on the middle rack of the oven.
These buddies are best if consumed still warmed right out of the oven. Just be aware to not burn your mouth!
