This is a really simple recipe, made using ordinary eating apples, and shop-bought puff pastry – be sure to buy the vegan variety, rather than the more common, all-butter kind.
While this dessert looks impressive, it's actually pretty simple to put together. I've arranged my apple slices carefully here, to make it more of a showstopper, but you can arrange then any old how for speed, if you prefer, and it'll still taste delicious!
1 roll vegan puff pastry
4 apples (any variety except Bramley), peeled, cored and thinly sliced
Juice of 1 lemon

50g plant-based butter
50g ground almonds
1 tbsp plant milk
4 heaped tbsp apricot jam
1-2 tbsp dark rum (optional)
