- apples- I have used Granny Smiths this time, but it works equally as well with Pink Lady or Royal Gala apples. Apples are one of our favourite fruits to use in cooking because they are so versatile- whether you use them in Sweet Potato and Apple Fritters, or Pork, Apple and Veggie Sausage Rolls!
- puff pastry- I have used storebought puff pastry for these, if you would prefer to make your own, check out the FAQs for a good recipe.
- vanilla paste- is better and stronger flavoured than vanilla extract. I use it for everything. If you prefer, you can switch it for vanilla extract.
