Apple galettes

Stamp out 11cm diameter circles from ready-rolled puff pastry. Core apples (don’t peel) and thinly slice. Roll out and cut marzipan into strips, then arrange alternately with the apples on top of the pastry circles, leaving a 2cm border. Bring up the edge of each circle to cover a little of the filling, brush with egg wash, then bake at 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6 for 15 minutes or until golden.
