Sweet apple & goat cheese triangles
In this recipe, the Chevrette melts with the sweet apples and these two-bite sized triangles become chewy and indulgent.
2 apples (peeled & diced)
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1 pinch all spice
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/8 cup water
1/2 lime (juice & zest)
1 handful raisins
3.5 oz Frico Chevrette cheese (slices) (shredded)
1 egg yolk
4-5 sheets of spring roll pastry
In a medium sauce pan, melt butter over medium heat then stir in diced apples, cinnamon, all spice, sugar and honey. Add water and cloves and stir until sugar and honey dissolve. Bring the mix to a boil.
Lower heat, add lime juice and zest then raisins (if using any) and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes or until most liquid is absorbed and apples are soft. You should have a thicker brown syrup around the apples when it is done. Discard the cloves and set aside to cool.
In the meantime, shred Chevrette slices in a small food processor.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line an oven tray with parchment paper.
To prepare the triangles, place a sheet of spring roll pastry on a cutting board and cut three equal-sized strips vertically. They should be a little less than 3 inches wide each. You will need 5 spring roll pastry sheets for 15 triangles.
Brush pastry strip with egg yolk on one side (the egg yolk will help it stick when folding and give a golden color in the oven). Turn the pastry strip to the other side and place one teaspoon of shredded Chevrette at the bottom of the strip then top it with 2 teaspoons of apple mixture. Fold into a triangle by diagonally folding the corner of the pastry over the stuffing then folding straight to the front then diagonally again to the other side. Repeat until the end of the strip. Tuck in any filling trying to escape and stick the end of the pastry with the egg yolk.
Arrange the folded triangles on the baking tray. Place it in the middle of the oven for a total 10 minutes or until golden. Flip the triangles half way through baking. Serve warm and dust with powdered sugar if preferred.
