The puff pastry comes frozen, so there is a little bit of prep work to be done. First off, 40 minutes to thaw. Then unfold and thaw for another few minutes if necessary.
Place on a lined baking pan. Silicone or parchment. But this step is necessary for removal.
Pinch together the seams and using a fork, dock the dough quite a few times to prevent the pastry from puffing up too much.
Place the tray into the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, you can prep the applesauce with the addition of cinnamon and sugar. We'll also be needing some melted non-dairy margarine.
Last, but certainly not least, peel, core and thinly slice the apples. Using a squeeze of fresh lemon juice will prevent them from discoloring. I like to halve the apples and make 1/4" vertical slices. Keeping those halves intact as you slice allows you to easily fan out and place the apples on the dough.
Remove the pastry from the fridge, spread a very thin layer of the cinnamon sugared applesauce and top with your apple slices.
Brush on the melted margarine and top with 1/4 C sugar.
Bake until golden and caramelized, about 25-30 minutes.
Brush the top with warmed apricot or apple jam.
Allow to cool for a few minutes before serving, or chill and serve with a dollop of non-dairy whipped cream. You can also make your own coconut whipped cream or serve with a scoop of vanilla almond milk ice cream.
