Unsalted whirl
Lion Apple Sauce 1 2kg White Lid


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.

  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the soft brown sugar in 2tbs of Unsalted Whirl. When melted, add the pecan nuts and stir gently for 4-5 minutes - remove from the heat when they are caramelised.

  3. Mix the Lion Apple Sauce, cranberries and cinnamon together and then add the slightly cooled caramelised pecan nuts.

  4. Take a sheet of pastry and cut into 7cm strips keeping the remaining sheets covered with a damp cloth. Brush each strip with the Unsalted Whirl Butter Alternative.

  5. Place a heaped teaspoon of the apple mixture onto the bottom left-hand corner of the strip. Fold over the corner with the filling so it meets the long side edge and forms a triangle. Continue folding from side to side to form a neat triangle. Place the parcel on a baking tray and brush with a little Unsalted Whirl Butter Alternative.

  6. Repeat until all the sheets and filling are used up.

  7. Put the trays of parcels in the oven and bake for about 10-12 minutes until golden and crisp.

  8. Great dusted with icing sugar and served with some vanilla sauce or ice cream.

  9. Top Tip: This recipe would work equally well with other nuts such as walnut, pistachio, almond or hazelnut.
